Single cell profiling of HIV-infected cells
To apply, please email Iain with a brief description of your interests, a CV, and the names of three references.
Description: Our lab aims to understand the molecular mechanisms that control HIV latency. Specifically what, if any, are the unique properties of CD4 cells that harbor replication competent HIV provirus during long term antiretroviral therapy (ART). We have developed a unique method to detect and sort HIV+ cells using ultra-high throughput droplet microfluidics. We seek a talented postdoctoral researcher to further improve and apply this method to study HIV latency ex vivo.
Qualifications: The ideal candidate is a molecular virologist, hypothesis driven, and interested in single cell sequencing methods. Candidates must hold or be within 1 year of obtaining a PhD or MD/PhD.
Additional experience in some of the following areas is preferred:
- HIV biology, cure research
- Single cell sequencing
- Fluorescence activated cell sorting
- Sequencing methods (Illumina, PacBio, Nanopore)
