Yale University Post Doctoral fellowships

 1. Postdoctoral Position - Emerging Viruses (Wilen Lab)

Posting Date: April 26, 2022

Postdoctoral position- Emerging viruses, Wilen lab

The Wilen lab is a highly collaborative, friendly, supportive, and dynamic environment in the departments of laboratory medicine and immunobiology. We are looking for a postdoc to study host-pathogen interactions of emerging viruses. We are specifically interested in understanding how potential future pandemic viruses cause disease and interact with the immune system. We are focused on novel previously uncharacterized RNA viruses from virus families known to cause significant human disease, including bat coronaviruses, bunyaviruses, rabies-like viruses, and noroviruses. We use molecular virology, CRISPR, organoids, single-cell technology, and animal models in the BSL2 and BSL3 labs to address fundamental questions about viral pathogenesis and immunity.

Post-docs are provided mentorship tailored to their professional and scientific goals and the autonomy to explore their own ideas and experiments. Mentorship is a priority in the lab, and trainees have frequent formal and informal meetings with Craig. Recent representative publications from the lab include: Wei et al Cell, 2021; Wilen et al Science, 2018; Ravindra, Alfajaro et al, PLoS Biology 2021, Flynn, et al Cell, 2021; Chen et al Science Immunology, 2021.

Prior experience in immunology, microbiology, molecular biology is desired but we are interested in working with the those from multiple diverse fields who are interested in working on emerging viruses to help prevent and combat the next pandemic.

Interested applicants, should email Craig Wilen, MD, PhD  (craig.wilen@yale.edu) a CV and brief statement of interest. More information about the lab is available at wilenlab.com
