Description

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.

Qualifications

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.
