Job Description

The candidate will perform cell and molecular biology work relating to development of small molecule therapies for high containment viruses and development of tissue models for studying infection and disease treatment. The work will involve evaluating the action and activity of small molecules for inhibiting virus infection. High throughput screening techniques will be applied at high containment and followed up with mechanistic analysis of activity using biochemical and cell biology techniques. Therapies will be evaluated in animal models but will also involve development of tissue models as substitutes for preclinical treatment evaluation. The work will be performed in part in the NEIDL BSL4 laboratory.
