OFFER DESCRIPTION

We are recruiting a post-doctoral scientist to work on a project for the development of new antiviral agents for COVID-19 treatment, hosted by the Institute of Chemistry of the University of São Paulo (IQ-USP), Brazil.

Substantial experience in molecular and cellular biology techniques, demonstrated by relevant publications in the field, is essential. This includes mammalian cell culture, western blotting, fluorescence microscopy and / or molecular cloning. Virology or pharmacology background is desirable, but not essential.

The project involves establishing a human cell line that ectopically expresses a viral protein and developing a western blotting or fluorescence microscopy-based assay to detect the activity of this enzyme, for subsequent screening of potential inhibitors.

This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. The selected candidate is also to entitled to a research contingency fund, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity.
