Training and Education Opportunities

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Section on Viral Gene Regulation, Laboratory of Molecular Genetics, NICHD, for molecular studies on the replication of HIV, including key aspects of reverse transcription and virus assembly. Specifically, we are interested in understanding the mechanism of nucleic acid chaperone activity, a biochemical property of the HIV-1 nucleocapsid protein that is critical for promoting efficient viral DNA synthesis. Other work is focused on structure-function analysis of the HIV-1 capsid protein to investigate early postentry events and proper assembly of virion ultrastructure.

Interested candidates must possess a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. degree and have a strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry, and/or virology. Less than 5 years postdoctoral experience is required. To apply, candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, bibliography, and contact information for three references to:
