This is a Postdoctoral Fellow position in the Marazzi Lab in the Department of Microbiology. Dr. Marazzi has an independent and active research program in the field of virus-host interactions. Specifically, his studies focus on the molecular basis for influenza viruses being more or less pathogenic. In essence, he studies the cellular response to pathogens and uses viruses as a model system to explain DNA- and chromatin-based regulatory mechanisms of gene transcription. This Postdoctoral Fellow will work and train in his laboratory and conduct research projects under his supervision.
As a postdoctoral fellow, you will play a critical role in generating and fostering a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research environment that serves to advance medical knowledge daily. Postdoctoral fellows gain research experience by working side-by-side with world-renowned physicians and scientists who are answering fundamental questions related to human conditions, disorders and disease. Appointment as a postdoctoral fellow at Mount Sinai is extended only to individuals with doctoral degrees who seek to enhance their research experience under the mentorship of a faculty member (Principal Investigator, PI). This is a "trainee" position, and is not a faculty position. A background or interest in microbiology, virology, and immunology is preferred.
