Postdoctoral Position in Virus-Cell interactions. Universidad Pompeu Fabra

2 de Febrero de 2017 - Publicado en EMPLEO

Molecular Virology Group, Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, University Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona

RNA viruses are a major threat to human health. They also provide a fascinating window into cell biology since they interact intimately with the infected cell. Aims of the project are to decipher how emerging mosquito-borne viruses such as Zika virus or Chikungunya virus efficiently translate their genomes in both mosquito and human translation machineries and how they modify the host gene expression program to their benefit.

Our group is integrated into the Biomedical Research Park of Barcelona (PRBB), one of the largest hubs of biomedical research in Europe. For more information please visit the web sites: http://www.prbb.org; https://www.upf.edu/web/virology-unit/
