Job Description
Postdoctoral Associate in the Laboratory of Immune Cell Epigenetics and Signaling at The Rockefeller University

We seek a Postdoctoral Associate to join the Laboratory of Immune Cell Epigenetics and Signaling at The Rockefeller University. Our lab studies the epigenetic mechanism of cellular and organismal adaptation to viruses. Our studies focus on three major topics: 1) the role of viral mimicry of the host epigenetic regulators in nonpathogenic and pathogenetic virus-driven changes of host physiology 2) the epigenetic mechanism of cell susceptibility and tolerance to virus infection; 3) the role of nuclear viral proteins in virus-host adaptation and virus evolution. We seek highly motivated and talented scientists, especially those who are interested in using quantitative and systems biology approaches to solve complex biological problems.

The successful applicant will hold a Ph.D. in a relevant research area such as molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and has a strong track record of accomplishment. Prior experience with virology would be welcome but is not required. The applicant should have a keen interest in the biology of host-pathogen interaction and epigenetics. Please see for more information about the research in the Tarakhovsky laboratory.
