USA: Fully Funded Postdoc position immunology/ cell biology/ biochemistry/ virology

A fully-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Hendrik Streeck at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard in Boston. Our laboratory studies the role of CD4+ T-helper cells in HIV-infection and their contribution to viral control, a traditionally underappreciated area of HIV/AIDS research. We seek to understand how CD4+ T helper cell subsets respond to immune challenges and coordinate the cellular and humoral arms of the immune system—research that will be crucial to the development of an effective HIV vaccine. We are currently looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who has a PhD or MD, background in immunology, cell biology and/or virology to spearhead a research project on the interaction of CD4 T cells and CD8 or B cells in the periphery, mucosa or lymph nodes.

We are looking for applicants with strong immunological experience. They must be ambitious, organized, and able to think independently to push forward novel and state of the art research strategies. Our laboratory is a dynamic, hard-working, and fun research environment. The position will provide numerous opportunities for career advancement, including publication, attendance at scientific conferences and meetings, and international collaborations. Interested applicants should visit our website at for more information about the lab.

Position requirements:
- an MD or Ph.D in immunology, cell biology, biochemistry and/or virology
- Strong record of publications and ability to draft manuscripts
- Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail
- Must have good interpersonal skills
- Must be highly motivated, excited and creative
- Experience in techniques such as flow cytometry, ELISA, and molecular biology is desirable

To apply: Please send applications to Dr. Hendrik Streeck at with CV, statement of research and career goals. The position is available immediately.
