A Postdoctoral Scientist position in translational Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) research is immediately available in the laboratory of Teresa H. Evering, M.D, M.S., at Weill Cornell Medicine. Dr. Evering is interested in the pathogenesis of HIV-1 associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND), the identification and characterization of novel therapeutics to combat deleterious effects of HIV-1 in the central nervous system (CNS) and the phylodynamics of HIV-1 in the CNS. The post-doctoral fellow will work on NIH funded studies involving the transcriptional profiling and functional study of directly induced neurons (iNs) to determine neuronal-associated gene-expression pathways modulated by factors including neurocognitive impairment, age, and combination antiretroviral therapy (cART). We seek an organized, enthusiastic candidate, who will work both independently and with a vibrant and international collaborative group of virologists, cell biologists, and immunologists and in direct interaction/collaboration with researchers with expertise in Stem cell technologies at the SKI Stem Cell Research Facility at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. firstname.lastname@example.org.
