Science jobs from Virginia Commonwealth University:
A postdoctoral position is available on an NIH-funded project at the School of Dentistry, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). The exciting research will combine high throughput proteomic approaches (quantitative mass spectrometry) and traditional molecular biological methods to dissect virus-host interactions. Specifically, the main objective of the current project is to understand the role of Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) protein kinase in viral life cycle and to develop novel anti-viral strategies that target the viral protein kinase and its downstream signaling pathways (Cell Host & Microbe, 2011; Journal of Virology 2012; Trend in Microbiology, 2013). Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent with strong research experience in molecular biology and cell biology. Applicants with experience in microbiology, proteomics and/or bioinformatics are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, CV and the names, e-mail addresses and phone numbers of three references to Dr. Renfeng Li by email:

With a record $256 million in sponsored research funding, VCU is designated as a research university with very high research activity by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. VCU is located in Richmond, the capital of Virginia with a population about 210,000, 90 minutes south of Washington DC. Richmond was most recently ranked as one of the "Top Best 100 Places to Live" by, a website that ranks quality of life and travel amenities of America's small and mid-sized cities.
