A POSTDOCTORAL POSITION is available to study immunity to viral infections in Drosophila. Projects include the study of innate mechanisms that control infection including autophagy and antiviral RNAi. Other projects involve high-throughput RNAi screening for host factors that impact viral infection of arthropod-borne human pathogens including West Nile virus. Applicants with a background in Drosophila genetics, innate immunity, virology or molecular biology are encouraged to apply.
