Post-doc position in viro-immunology (CIRI -Lyon)

A post-doc position is open for a project supported by the French National Agency (ANR), 2-year position - possible extension. The research program in the group of Marlène Dreux at CIRI (Lyon) centers on the innate immune response against viral infection.

Type I interferons are first line of host defense to protect against viral infections. The most robust producer cell type is the plasmacytoid dendritic cell (pDC). We aim at defining how IFN-I response control viral infection. Dengue virus serve as primary viral model for our project, yet our main findings are studied to other viruses to define the broad versus virus-specific regulation. More recently, we have initiated research on SARS-CoV2.

Position available as soon as October 2020
