Research Assistant position
Our research interests center on the posttranslational regulation of viral membrane
envelope glycoproteins and on protein-protein interactions underlying viral pathogenesis.
Currently we are focusing on the envelope (Env) glycoprotein of HIV-1. Using molecular
biology techniques coupled with retrovirological, biochemical and immunological
methodologies we intend to (1) study the structure-function relationship of transmembrane
protein gp41, with an emphasis on the zipper motif and cytoplasmic domain; and to (2)
develop trans-dominant negative Env mutants to interfere with the wild-type virus replication;
and to (3) develop Env-based gene therapy technologies for the treatment of viral diseases.
M.S. or B.S. in Virology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cell Biology or other
related biosciences are required.
