Two positions in human immunology research with a focus on T-cell immunology of viral infections in humans are available in the laboratory of Georg Lauer, MD PhD at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
Successful candidates will join an international team of scientists and a network of close interdisciplinary collaborators.
The lab is located at Massachusetts General Hospital, the largest hospital-based research program in the United States. Fellows will also be appointed at Harvard Medical School.
Both fellows will work on projects defining protective virus-specific CD4 and CD8 T-cell responses as well as the mechanisms by which hepatitis C (HCV) and hepatitis B (HBV) viruses circumvent the human immune system in order to establish persistent infection.
The projects will integrate clinical data, complex flow cytometry analyses and omics data sets through innovative computational approaches.
Candidates should have a PhD and/or MD with a strong scientific background.
Applicants with a computational background and a master’s degree in biostatistics, statistics, computational biology or a related field are also welcome to apply.
Fluency in English is required, as is a strong interest in basic immunological research in humans.
We are a dynamic and competitive team, but we are also proud of having a collegial and pleasant environment and we expect future members to be team players as well.
