Virology and Immunology of HIV+ Transplantation

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland

Position Description:
Do you enjoy laboratory research, but wish your work had a more direct effect on human health? Do you want to work with a diverse and fun team that includes Researchers, Physicians, Nurses, technicians, and students? If you said yes, then we want to hear from you!
We have a Postdoctoral position available immediately at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to explore the intersection of virology, immunology and clinical factors involved with HIV+ to HIV+ kidney and liver transplantation. The successful candidate will work primarily with the Core lab team, but will interact on a regular basis with the HOPE (HIV Organ Policy Equity Act) in Action clinical and analysis teams as well. The work will initially include utilizing techniques in next-generation sequencing, laser capture microdissection, and single-cell genomic analysis. Previous molecular biology experience is required, and experience in any of these techniques would be a plus. After the initial projects the possibilities for future research on the immunology, virology, and pathology in this project are numerous. The position is extremely well-funded, and ideal for candidate interested in pursuing a K-training grant. Therefore, the position could be a good jumping off point for an independent career for a new PhD graduate, or even someone with a couple years of post-doc experience.
