Employment & Training Opportunities


Postdoctoral opportunity in neuroHIV research for Fall 2020

The Interdisciplinary Research Fellowship in NeuroAIDS (IRFN) still has slots available for a Fall 2020 start. The IRFN is an NIMH-funded 2-year postdoctoral education program that aims to train the next generation of neuroHIV researchers. It is open to applicants who have completed a doctoral degree in a clinical or basic science discipline and do not yet have a faculty appointment. See more here.

Postdoctoral Fellowship

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in modeling of HIV, and hepatitis C virus and overdose prevention among substance using populations in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Global Public Health at University of California San Diego (https://medschool.ucsd.edu/som/medicine/divisions/idgph/Pages/default.aspx). In particular, the goals are to inform public health policy-making through forecasting the future HIV, HCV, and overdose epidemic among people who inject drugs, and evaluating the population level impact of combination prevention interventions. Additionally, what are the optimal/most cost-effective portfolios of interventions to achieve specific public health targets. Apply here

Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Johns Hopkins HIV Epidemiology and Prevention Sciences Training Program is seeking post-doctoral candidates for advanced training in HIV epidemiology and prevention sciences. The program combines scholarly training in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and collaborative research experiences with top investigators in HIV epidemiology, clinical, and prevention research. The training program has three areas of focus: HIV Epidemiology and Implementation Science Methods, HIV Clinical Epidemiology and Laboratory Sciences, and HIV Prevention Sciences.


Please contact the Program Administrator, Kristin Hunt, kshunt@jhu.edu for more information. See flyer here

CFAR Team Member

The Pathogenesis and Basic Research Branch, Basic Sciences Program, Division of AIDS is currently searching for a candidate to fill a contractor position within our team. This position will provide programmatic support to the Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) Program. The CFAR Program includes 19 centers and provides administrative and shared research support to synergistically enhance and coordinate high quality HIV research projects. The CFARs accomplish this through core facilities that provide expertise, resources, and services not otherwise readily obtained through more traditional funding mechanisms.


Candidates must have relevant experience in a biomedical or public health related discipline.  Interested candidates should contact Karl Salzwedel at: salzwedelkd@niaid.nih.gov

Postdoctoral Associate

The Torbett Lab is seeking for a Postdoctoral Associate (from 0-3 years of previous postdoctoral experience) that will take part in research studies to elucidate the mechanism(s) underlying the effects of opioids on HIVinfection and latency. This position works in a laboratory or vivarium environment. The Postdoctoral Associate will also be a member of the TSRI-UCSD HIVOpioid working group.

Assistant or Associate Professor

The Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The candidate, working in an area of retrovirus biology, will complement a collaborative group of 8 Retrovirus Lab faculty members working to understand the immunopathogenesis of HIV in animal model systems with the goal of promoting HIV cure.

Research Assistant

The Torbett Group is looking for a Research Assistant at the Scripps Research Institute. Responsibilities in this position will include Flow cytometry analysis of hematopoietic cells, protein isolation and Western blot analysis, lentiviral vector production, cloning, PCR, human hematopoietic cell isolation from human blood and humanized mouse tissues. This position works in a laboratory or vivarium environment.

Postdoctoral Associate

The Torbett lab has a long-standing interest in understanding the biochemical and structural evolution of HIV in response to anti-retroviral treatment. HIV adapts to inhibitors and generates inhibitor resistance, yet maintains viral fitness. To follow individual HIV changes in the viral swarm in patients we are developing novel sequencing methodologies. Currently, we have an opening for a Scripps Research Postdoctoral Associate (from 0-3 years of previous postdoctoral experience) interested in applying novel sequencing methodologies to follow HIV evolution in patients undergoing inhibitor treatment.

Nurse Practitioner Position

The UC San Diego (UCSD) Division of Infectious Diseases and Global Public Heath is seeking a Nurse Practitioner to fill a part-time position with the iStrive Research Lab. The Nurse Practitioner will work in a research capacity on The THRIVE Study, a multi-disciplinary study that seeks to understand alterations to the body’s immune response that may increase susceptibility to HIV following sexual assault. The study is located in the AntiViral Research Center at the University of California San Diego Medical Center in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego.
