A Postdoctoral Fellow position (non-tenure) is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sergey Iordanskiy, Department of Pharmacology & Molecular Therapeutics, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (Bethesda, Maryland). We seek a doctoral graduate in molecular or cellular biology, virology, radiobiology or biomedical sciences (M.D. and/or Ph.D.) to study effect of radiation-induced cellular stress on endogenous retroviruses and their impact on bystander cells. Applicants should have experience with analysis of gene expression, signal transduction pathways, RNA biology, and standard cell biology techniques. Experience in retrovirology, transcriptome analysis, proteomics and carcinogenesis would be helpful, but is not a prerequisite for the position. A record of publications in an area related to regulation of gene expression, viral molecular biology, RNA biology, radiobiology or cancer biology is highly desirable.
