Postdoctoral Position in Influenza Virus Pathogenesis

The Heaton Laboratory has an opening for a Postdoctoral Associate at the Duke University School of Medicine.

We are seeking a motivated person to take on projects defining the mechanisms of how influenza viruses alter the physiology of infected cells and how those changes affect the ability of the lung epithelium to regenerate after the virus is cleared. To address these questions, we will utilize high-throughput genomic screening approaches, primary cell culture systems, and animal models of influenza disease.

This is expected to be at least a two-year position and is fully funded by the NIH. Recent Ph.D. graduates (or people about to graduate) with interest in this topic are encouraged to apply. We value diversity of backgrounds and experience, so if you aren’t an expert in all of the approaches we use, that’s just fine! Our lab is a training environment; we are primarily interested in recruiting people who love science and are willing to put in the work to achieve their goals.
