Postdoctoral fellows interested in viral enzymology and the genetics of viral transmission are sought ot collaborate with structural biologists to develop a new generation of antivirals with the aim of suppressing drug resistance. The laboratory has recently received funding from the Pandemic Preparedness initiative from the NIH. We have the privilege of performing the viral genetics and biology to inform downstream antiviral development by the people who brought us the 'COVID Moonshot'. The choice of targets are those most likely to suppress the outgrowth of drug resistance. For positive-strand RNA viruses, the high-throughput aspect of this is structure-based fragment screening develop antivirals. in a context that is free of intellectual property constraints and performed in non-profit setting that will result in equitable distribution of inexpensive antivirals. Here is our website: https://asapdiscovery.org/.

For influenza, we have already developed lead compounds based on our published structure (Selzer et al, 2020) of assembled influenza matrix protein. Working with other members of the laboratory, there are projects in matrix structural biology, antiviral design and the genetics of drug resistance.

Stanford University School of medicine is a vibrant environment for interdisciplinary science. To address the high cost of living, postdoctoral salaries are significantly higher than NIH caps.

We also explore the mechanisms of paramyxovirus entry, replication, assembly and budding, and identify host factors that play a part in these processes. We are not just about understanding viruses but also about combating them. We are developing next-generation vaccines and antiviral therapies and using paramyxovirus-delivered gene editing tools to push the boundaries of this technology.

Our ideal candidates are individuals who are excited about the opportunity to conduct groundbreaking research on these topics. Current projects include but are not limited to:
• antiviral discovery and characterization
• characterization of human bNAbs against emerging paramyxoviruses generated in transgenic mice with human Ig loci
• developing biologically-contained reverse genetics systems for highly pathogenic viruses
• structure-function studies on paramyxovirus transcription and replication complexes as well as on antibody-viral envelope interactions

We believe in fostering an atmosphere of camaraderie and intellectual curiosity. Here, you can expect to find a workplace where ideas flow freely, collaboration is the norm, and the excitement for discovery is palpable. Compensation is significantly above NIH proposed rates to enable living in NYC.

Postdoctoral position in the Laboratory of Viral Diseases, NIAID NIH
NIAID NIH
The Ivanovic lab (https://ivanoviclab.org) is in search of a talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher to join us in the Laboratory of Viral Diseases (LVD) at NIAID NIH.

How do viral pandemics come about? Why do we require a new flu shot every year? The Ivanovic Lab seeks answers to these questions by uncovering mechanisms of how viruses adapt to external pressures. We believe that the effectiveness of vaccinations or antivirals could be extended through targeted inhibition of viral escape mechanisms. Our lab has recently identified that influenza virions can adopt a filamentous morphology to escape challenge by antibodies and antiviral drugs. Strikingly, shape adaptation can occur instantaneously, without an underlying genetic change. Viruses (or rather infected cells) are thus able to sense and respond to external environment in ways that enable persistence. Our toolkit of viral genetics, cell biology, and molecular biophysics will enable us to uncover the mechanism behind this adaptation which may enable discovery of broadly acting antivirals that prevent filament formation in influenza and other viruses. You can get a closer look at a subset of active projects in the lab by visiting Ed Partlow’s poster (P20-4), or Steve Planitzer’s (W58-7) and Nick Berg’s talks (W58-8).

At NIH, you can expect a collaborative and inclusive research environment with leading scientists and clinicians, excellent resources, and secure and competitive funding. LVD comprises a team of research groups that share the common goal of increasing our basic understanding of viruses and their interaction with their hosts. LVD places a focus on the mentoring of young scientists, including the LVD seminar series featuring trainee presentations, talks and meetings with prominent virologists, and perspectives from scientists with “beyond the bench” careers.

2 postdoc positions in the Kaufer lab

The Kaufer lab at the Institute of Virology at the Freie Universität Berlin is looking for two independent and creative postdoc researchers (funded for 5 years), who want to do exciting research and live in the best city in Europe. The institute

In our new European Research Council (ERC) project we will investigate how an endogenous herpesvirus affects human health and disease. Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) has integrated into germ cell telomeres in 80 million people. Reactivation of the virus is associated with seizures, encephalitis, heart failure, and graft rejection. By analyzing hundreds of individuals with chromosomally-integrated HHV-6, we discovered a wide range of virus sequences originating from multiple integration events spanning generations. Our ENDo-HERPES project utilizes cutting-edge technology to:

Identify functional iciHHV-6 genomes linked to disease.

Explore iciHHV-6 integration sites and unravel the mechanism of integration and reactivation on the DNA level.

Investigate the impact of iciHHV-6 on host cells and the role of telomere shortening in reactivation.

We will pioneer new approaches and shed light on the life cycle and effects of this hidden herpesvirus present in 1% of the human population.

I’m happy to talk to you at ASV 😊

P.s. No German is required as everybody speaks English in the lab and the rest of Berlin.
