Seeking highly motivated candidates to fill a postdoctoral fellowship to join the
Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Georgetown University School of
Medicine. The research interest of the laboratory is to understand the molecular
pathways of HIV-driven immune activation, the main player in the pathogenesis of the
infection. Particularly, the studies are focused in elucidating the mechanisms involved
in the activation of the CD4 and CD8 T cell pools that leads to immune dysfunction and
failure to viral control. Projects will involve using a murine animal model of viral infection
with a strong translational component.
Postdoctoral applicants should hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in immunology and with no
more than five years of previous postdoctoral experience are encouraged to apply.
Biologist position requires BS and/or masters.
Experience in infectious diseases animal models, cell isolations from tissue, cellular
immunology techniques, multi-parameter flow cytometry, fluorescence imaging,
molecular biology, and working in animal models is highly considered. Applicants must
be willing to work under Biohazard Level 2 Safety conditions with HIV-1 and other
To apply, submit curriculum vitae, a summary of current and future research interests,
expected availability date, a description of past research experience and
accomplishments, and three references to Marta Catalfamo
