A Clinical Research Division laboratory, Kiem Lab, that studies hematopoietic stem cell and T cell biology is recruiting a Research Technician II/III to participate in projects focused on novel gene therapy and gene editing strategies for HIV cure. Using established preclinical and in vivo models of HIV persistence, the technician will optimize and perform diverse immunological assays, process primary tissue samples, and participate in novel assay development. Although the position will focus primarily on samples infected with HIV and related viruses, applying similar approaches for other diseases and pathologies will also be explored.
