Postdoc Position in Molecular Virology

Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences. University of Bern. Switzerland.

Applications are invited for a postdoc position to join our virology group. The position is available as of now or upon agreement.

Our virology group works on viral and cellular factors that control the transmission, systemic spread and infectious entry of parvoviruses. We are particularly interested in the interaction of viral proteins with their cellular receptors, intracellular trafficking and uncoating. We also study the molecular mechanism of virus inactivation and removal, which is crucial for the safety of plasma-derived therapeutic products.

We are looking for an excellent, highly motivated researcher with a strong background in virology and a good record of publications to lead independent research projects in pathogen safety in the frame of a collaboration between the University and the pharma industry. The successful candidates will have a PhD degree in virology, and proven experience in virus purification and quantification techniques, confocal immunofluorescence microscopy and cell culture.
We offer the opportunity to work in a scientifically thriving environment and to develop an internationally competitive research project in the field of pathogen safety. The position is initially for one year with the possibility of extension.
We look forward to receiving your application including a letter of interest explaining the skills and motivation you would bring to the post, a CV, and the names of two referees by email to PD Dr. Carlos Ros. A personal interview will be required for shortlisted candidates.
Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, PD Dr. Carlos Ros, Freiestrasse 3, 3012 Bern. Phone: 031 684 43 31,
