The research group of Dr. Andreas Puschnik at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub is looking for passionate and talented scientists (in particular, recent/soon-to-be PhD graduates or postdoctoral-level researchers). Our lab is interested in studying virus-host interactions with particular focus on 1) what are the cellular factors that are hijacked by viruses to establish successful infection, 2) how does the innate immune system interfere with different steps in the viral life cycle, and 3) can we modulate pro- and antiviral pathways for therapeutic purposes. To address this, we employ a combination of large-scale CRISPR screens, genetics/cell engineering, development of reporter viruses, and molecular and cell biology techniques.
Examples of our work are listed below:
Our lab is located in Mission Bay/San Francisco at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, an independent nonprofit research institute with partnerships with UCSF, UC Berkeley and Stanford University. We are part of a vibrant and collaborative research community, which includes groups with expertise in imaging, mass spectrometry, cell engineering, genomics, data science, and bioengineering. Our unique structure allows us to pursue fundamental scientific questions that address important issues for human health without the reliance on traditional funding sources.
What We Provide:
We offer a robust benefits program that enables the important work Biohubbers do everyday. Our benefits include healthcare coverage, life and disability insurance, commuter subsidies, family planning services with fertility care, childcare stipend, 401(k) match, flexible time off and a generous parental leave policy. In addition, we honor our commitment to career development and our value of scholarly excellence through regular onsite opportunities to learn from the world’s leading scientists.
Chan Zuckerberg Biohub requires all employees, contractors and interns, regardless of work location and type of role, to be fully vaccinated and show proof to Human Resources. New CZ Biohub staff must be fully vaccinated within 6 weeks of their start date OR a reasonable accommodation is approved for those that are unable to get vaccinated because of a disability or choose not to be vaccinated due to a sincerely-held religious belief, practice or observance.
