The Zhu Lab in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is recruiting a Post-Doctoral Fellow to lead a project deciphering protective immune responses against herpes simplex virus infection in human skin.We use state-of-the-art imaging and spatial technologies in combination with in vitro 3-D microfluidic systems to evaluate tissue-based host immune responses to infection.
The candidate will investigate tissue resident memory T-cell and its interaction with surrounding microenvironment in the context of human genital herpes infection. This project will require a deep understanding of viral infection and host response in skin. The ideal candidate will also have experience or be interested in microfluidic technology.
Please submit a CV, a brief description of past research experiences and future goals (1-2 pages) and contact information for three references.
