The Baker Lab at Lovelace Biomedical Research Institute (LBRI) studies how influenza viruses interface with their vertebrate hosts, with the goal of better mitigation or prediction strategies against future pandemic viruses. Specifically, we study how host alternative RNA splicing reshapes the virus:host landscape during infection. Our work combines transcriptomics, molecular biology, and virology to identify and characterize the evolutionary struggle between viruses and their hosts. We are seeking a curious, creative, and highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to spearhead research aimed at understanding the contribution of alternative RNA splicing to virus infection, adaptation, and host co-evolution. The postdoc should bring their own ideas, but can initially drive research from the lab integrating long read RNA sequencing data with experimental approaches that identify biological mechanisms of virus control. The Postdoctoral Fellow will conduct independent research, remain abreast of developments in the field of research and develop novel research methods as needed.  Will also work directly with research teams in the Institute as well as with outside collaborators, develop proposals for research funding, present and publish research data, analyze and interpret a variety of data, and perform all other related research duties as required or assigned.
