Job Summary

Post Doctoral Fellow positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Matthew Weitzman, at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the University of Pennsylvania (Penn). Our lab is part of the rich scientific environment on the CHOP/Penn campus that includes multiple areas of virology, immunology, cancer, and epigenetics. We are located in the new Colket Translational Research Building as part of the Division of Cancer Pathobiology, in the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine. The lab is also part of the Center for Childhood Cancer Research (CCCR), the Center for Cellular & Molecular Therapeutics (CCMT), the Penn Institute for Immunology (IFI), the Penn Epigenetics program, and Penn Center for AIDS Research (CFAR).

The lab’s research focuses on virus-host interactions and the use of viruses as model systems to study DNA repair, signaling, cell biology, replication, innate host defenses and gene delivery. We are interested in virus replication and the resulting cellular responses. We study the intersection of virus and host pathways during infection and how they reveal insights into fundamental cellular mechanisms. We are particularly interested in recognition and processing of viral genomes by DNA repair and APOBEC pathways. We are using virus systems to study signaling, ubiquitination and degradation, and transcriptional silencing. Viral model systems include adeno-associated virus (AAV), adenovirus (Ad) and herpes simplex virus (HSV).
