Position Summary

The UNC HIV Cure Center in the Institute of Global Health and Infectious Disease and School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in collaboration with basic science departments in the School of Medicine and across the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The UNC HIV Cure Center is focused on the discovery, development, and implementation of new treatments to allow durable treatment-free remission of HIV infection (cure). The HIV Cure Center is supported by University and federal funds, and by a public-partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Glaxo SmithKline. The Center seeks to comingle academic and industry approaches, redefining research and seeking the breakthroughs needed to tackle this extraordinarily challenging global health issue.

We are seeking a highly motivated, independent and dynamic postdoctoral research fellow to undertake research at the UNC HIV Cure center, specifically in a project seeking to understand HIV persistence and eradication strategies for cure of HIV. The UNC HIV Cure center is a multi-disciplinary research center with various current translational studies. Our laboratory is interested in understanding of HIV latency and persistent HIV infection-associated complications. We seek to discover new anti-HIV latency therapeutic targets that will ultimately lead to the eradication of HIV infection, including “shock and kill” and deep latency. Varieties of HIV latency models will be used in this study, including in vitro and ex vivo cellular models of latency, ART-suppressed rhesus macaque model of AIDS, and tissues isolated from HIV+ individuals receiving ART.

Educational Requirements

Applicants should possess a PhD., M.D., or PhD./MD. in microbiology and immunology, virology, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, physiology, biophysics, neuroscience, or a related field. A background in epigenetic is a plus.

Qualifications and Experience

The ideal candidate will have experience and interest in cellular and/or animal models of SIV/HIV infection or other viral infection with expertise in flow cytometry, tissue culture, and cellular immunology to facilitate translational research at the clinical/basic science interface. He/she should also be proficient in microscopy techniques and immunostaining.

Preference will be given to candidates with extensive experiences in tissue processing, primary cell culture, flow cytometry and molecular biology/biochemistry techniques such as co-immunoprecipitation, chromatin immunoprecipitation, qPCR/RT-qPCR, and western blot analysis. Opportunities will exist for gaining teaching experience with graduate and clinical research fellows. Candidates should also have strong laboratory and analytical skills as demonstrated by a strong track record of relevant 1st author publications in well-respected journals. Outstanding communication skills in English are essential for this position.
Equal Opportunity Employer

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.
