Requirements

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly motivated candidate with a strong background in immunology to join the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Georgetown University School of Medicine.

Our research focuses on understanding molecular pathways of HIV immunopathogenesis, especially those driving T cell immune activation. Patients with increased levels of biomarkers of inflammation and coagulation such as IL-6, sCD14 and D-dimer are at an increased risk to develop, e.g., hepatic, metabolic, renal, and cardiovascular morbidity. These serious non-AIDS-defining illnesses are today the leading cause of mortality/morbidity in patients with HIV infection in the United States. Projects will involve using a murine animal model of infection, such as LCMV infection to study the intersection of coagulation and inflammation with a strong translational component.  Applicants should hold a Ph.D. and have a strong immunology background as well as significant experience in molecular/cellular immunology and animal models.
