We are hiring! Join our poop family!
We are always interested in recruiting highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals to join our lab!
For postdoctoral positions, successful candidates are expected to have a Ph.D., M.D, or equivalent degree in Microbiology/Immunology or related fields. In addition, candidates should be highly motivated, have strong communication skills, and be able to collaborate and work independently. Prior experience in working with viruses and animals is preferred. The Ding lab currently has opportunities for postdoctoral researchers to study the role of host factors in supporting rotavirus replication and virus innate immune evasion. These studies involve the use of newly developed rotavirus reverse genetics system and molecular biology approaches. Another position is available to study the molecular basis by which rotavirus induces diarrheal diseases and dictates host range/tissue tropism using a suckling mouse model for rotavirus pathogenesis and human intestinal enteroids.
Prospective graduate students interested in pursuing Ph.D. studies within the laboratory should apply to the Molecular Microbiology and Microbial Pathogenesis (MMMP) or Immunology graduate programs under the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences (DBBS) umbrella program.
We also have a position for a highly qualified Research Assistant/Technician. This person will assist in experiments in the lab as well as be responsible for managing the lab supplies and looking after compliance of lab safety requirements. There will be plenty of opportunities for career development into graduate school or medical school. Undergraduate students at WUSTL and Post Baccalaureates interested in applying for graduate schools or medical schools are also invited to work in the lab.
To apply, please email your cover letter summarizing your research interests, past research experience, and future career goals, curriculum vitae or NIH biosketch, and the names and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Siyuan Ding (firstname.lastname@example.org).
