Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Katya Heldwein at Tufts University School of Medicine (Boston, MA). Her lab investigates the mechanisms by which herpesviruses manipulate host membranes and intracellular traffic to enter and escape from the host cells using a combination of biophysical, biochemical and cell biological approaches.

Applicants should hold a PhD in a biological science and have at least one first-author publication in a major peer-reviewed journal. Applicants with research experience in membrane protein biochemistry, macromolecular structure determination (x-ray crystallography or electron microscopy), single-molecule spectroscopy, or virology are especially encouraged to apply. Fluency in oral and written English is essential.

To apply, please, submit a CV, a cover letter with a summary of previous research and a description of future research interests, and names of 3 references to Dr. Katya Heldwein by e-mail: <>. Information for the Heldwein lab can be found at:
