Post date:  Sept 1, 2017
Position: Full time, immediate start date

Epstein-Barr virus-­associated cancers

A postdoctoral position is immediately available to study the oncogenic mechanisms of Epstein-­‐Barr virus (EBV). The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D in the field of virology or cancer biology. This project will investigate EBV pathogenesis and genomic instability in pediatric samples. Opportunities also exist to work with mice. Experience in cancer virology, DNA repair or lymphocyte biology is preferred, but candidates with independent thinking, experimental rigor and evidence of scientific writing and presentation will be the most highly ranked.

Current projects in the Shair lab include: 1) oncogenic signaling mechanisms of EBV latent membrane proteins (LMP) 1 and LMP2A, 2) determinants of EBV latency and persistence, and 3) mouse models of EBV-­‐associated cancers. The Shair lab at the University of Pittsburgh is housed in the Cancer Virology Program, Hillman Cancer Center, where our common interests are to elucidate the molecular basis of cancer and translational medicine.

To be considered, please submit a C.V. and names of 3 references to Dr. Shair ( Applications will be considered in the order they are received and successful applicants will be contacted by September 30, 2017.
