Postdoctoral Associate position in HIV research (Full-Time)
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of David N.
Levy, PhD at New York University to study the molecular biology of HIV
replication and latency.
Projects available include:
Project 1 utilizes a multi-omics approach to investigate the contribution of
viral and cellular factors to the decision between productive and latent HIV
infection. At the epigenetic level, we have identified specific viral factors
that regulate the initial installation of chromatin post-translational
modifications influencing early viral gene expression. In combination with
ChIP-PCR and cellular -omics (single cell and bulk RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-
seq, etc.), we are elucidating key pathways governing viral replication and
persistence. Understanding the interplay between viral and cellular epigenetic
regulators is key to developing novel methods to activate or suppress
expression from viral reservoirs.
Project 2 explores the remodeling of HIV infected cells by the virus. Specific
viral components are seen to influence cellular gene expression and cellular
functions that may contribute to development of immunodeficiency.
Immunological and -omics studies are combined in novel ways to reveal
unexpected virus-host interactions.
Applicants with qualifications that are specifically relevant to these studies
will be considered only.

The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in molecular biology, virology, and/or
immunology. Experience in either molecular HIV research and/or epigenetics and
transcriptional regulation is a significant plus. The position is designed for
a highly motivated person desiring an independent career in research. An
abiding mission of my laboratory is to assist postdoctoral fellows in the
development of independence.
Applicants must submit: 1) Cover letter; 2) Curriculum Vitae; 3) Statement
of research interests and career goals; and 4) Names and contact information
of at least three referees.
