Postdoctoral Position - Infection and Immunity @ St. George's University of London

July 29, 2020

It is essential that new anti-human cytomegalovirus drugs rapidly progress through pre-clinical development. In partnership with Merck, Sharpe & Dohme, our laboratory will investigate replication of HCMV viral genomes produced from Letermovir treated cells with a view to understanding how HCMV can be detected in patients during Letermovir treatment. It is our aim to not only advance our understanding of viral DNA metabolism, but also create new paradigms in viral diagnostics.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in virology or molecular biology; previous experience...
