We will foster programs in the areas of basic, translational, mechanistic, and population research.
The UNC HIV Cure Center in the Institute of Global Health and Infectious Disease and School of
Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in collaboration with basic science
departments in the School of Medicine and across the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The UNC HIV Cure Center is focused on the
discovery, development, and implementation of new treatments to allow durable treatment-free
remission of HIV infection (cure). The HIV Cure Center is supported by University and federal funds,
and by a public-partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Glaxo
SmithKline. The Center seeks to comingle academic and industry approaches, redefining research and
seeking the breakthroughs needed to tackle this extraordinarily challenging global health issue.
We are seeking a highly motivated, independent and dynamic postdoctoral research fellow to
undertake research at the UNC HIV Cure center, specifically in a project seeking to understand HIV
persistence and eradication strategies for cure of HIV. The UNC HIV Cure center is a multi-disciplinary
research center with various current translational studies. Our laboratory is interested in understanding
of HIV latency and persistent HIV infection-associated complications. We seek to discover new anti-
HIV latency therapeutic targets that will ultimately lead to the eradication of HIV infection, including
shock and kill and deep latency. Varieties of HIV latency models will be used in this study, including in
vitro and ex vivo cellular models of latency, ART-suppressed rhesus macaque model of AIDS, and
tissues isolated from HIV+ individuals receiving ART.
