Two postdoctoral positions in studying interactions of Ixodes scapularis ticks with tick-borne viruses are available immediately in the Laboratories, directed by Drs. Hameeda Sultana and Girish Neelakanta at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, and USA. The laboratories of Drs. Sultana and Neelakanta are well equipped and use multidisciplinary approaches such as Virology, microbiology, vector biology, genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, genomics and cell biology approaches to understand the interactions of human pathogens with vectors and their mammalian hosts.

Highly motivated and interested candidates with a Ph.D., degree in virology, vector-borne diseases, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry or microbiology are especially encouraged to apply for these advertised positions. Candidates with strong background in murine models, gene regulation, protein purification, protein-protein interactions and cell culture work are also highly encouraged to apply.
