Post-doctoral Fellowship in Molecular Virology & Microbiology (Infectious Diseases)
We have one slot available for a post-doctoral fellow at NRL (Washington, DC) to begin in October 2021-October 2023. The 2-year fellowship can be extended to 3-years if needed. The post-doc will focus on one of the following: (1) SSHHPS/nsP – a post-translational silencing mechanism akin to CRISPR/Cas, (2) Engineered capsule depolymerases for treatment of drug-resistant pathogens, (3) Chemical defense – Host enzymes inhibited by nerve agents and pesticides.
Graduate students expected to graduate in May 2021 may apply through the NAS (http://nrc58.nas.edu/RAPLab10/opportunity/Opportunity.aspx?LabCode=64&ROPCD=641509&RONum=C0139) or by sending a cv directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
Experience in enzyme kinetics, protein purification, structural biology, protein engineering, biopython, machine learning, or bioinformatics is desired. BSL3 laboratory experience is also available during this fellowship through a collaboration at George Mason University (Manassas, VA). US citizenship is required. This position is located on a US Navy base.
