Description

Internship positions are available for students who are interested in doing their major thesis in the area of host-pathogen interactions in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the Oregon Heath and Science University, Portland, Oregon (USA). Our research focuses on understanding how pathogens such as bacteria and viruses hijack the host factors to secure invasion, persistence and propagation. We are especially interested in studying the roles of cellular lipids in bacterial and/or viral pathogenesis and their significance on innate and adaptive immunity. Our institute offers a scientifically inspiring environment with direct access to state-of-the-art facilities in genomics, biochemistry, proteomics, lipidomics and advanced microscopy. Moreover, students will have a chance to work very closely with our collaborators in other institutions such as the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard, and the Harvard School of Public Health.

Lab experience in the area of infectious diseases, microscopy, (bio)chemistry or molecular cell biology is preferred but not required. The applicant must have also a strong motivation to work in multidisciplinary and challenging academic environment. If you are interested, please contact Fikadu Tafesse, PhD (tafesse@ohsu.edu) for more details.
