The Krug laboratory in the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at Stony Brook University seeks a PhD- or MD-level applicant to join as a post-doctoral fellow. The fellow will investigate the mechanism by which host signaling factors control gammaherpesvirus latency in an animal pathogenesis system. This is a multi-disciplinary project involving cell signaling, immunology, and ‘omics’ in addition to viral pathogenesis. A PhD or MD in Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology, Immunology or a closely related field and experience in molecular biology is required.
Required Qualifications: PhD or MD in Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics or closely related field. In-depth research experience in microbiology, immunology, molecular genetics, biochemistry, or cell biology.
Preferred Qualifications: Proven ability to carry out biomedical research as judged by scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals. Experience with molecular biology. Familiarity with animal models of disease.

UC San Francisco: Postdoc Position open in virologic, immunologic, and molecular studies of HIV pathogenesis, prevention and cure
Post-doctoral position is available for candidates who have had research experience in virology, molecular biology, or immunology and have obtained a Ph.D. and/or M.D.
The research undertaken involves studies of HIV infection, innate immunity, stem cell biology and vaccine development. Candidate will get experience in many phases of HIV pathogenesis, treatment and cure. It is a model for studying many aspects of infection by viruses. The position is in the Laboratory for Tumor and AIDS Virus Research at the University of California, San Francisco.
Interested candidates should send curriculum vitae and the names of three references to:Dr. Jay A. Levy, M.D. University of California San Francisco 513 Parnassus, Box 1270 San Francisco, CA 94143-1270
The first project involves mouse genetics, single cell transcriptomics, computational analysis of transcriptome data, and microscopic imaging, among other methods. The project is in the Mustapha/Heller Labs. Mustapha-Heller postdoctoral
The second project involves mouse genetics, electrophysiological recordings from dissociated neurons, transcriptome analysis and microscopic imaging, among other methods. The project is in the Mustapha/Ricci Labs. Mustapha-Ricci postdoctoral
Candidates should send a CV as well as a brief statement why they would be a good fit to the PI, Dr. Mirna Mustapha at email@example.com.
