Torbett Laboratory




The Torbett lab has a deep interest in understanding how HIV adapts to viral inhibitors and generates inhibitor resistance, yet maintains fitness. 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.

Experience in sequencing, RNA biology, virology, and some computational skills will be needed. The Postdoctoral Associate will also participate in the development of novel sequencing methods, as well as be a member of HIV Interaction in Evolution Center (, which is focused on obtaining at the atomic level an understanding of the structural and dynamic relationships between interacting human host cell and HIV macromolecules in the HIV life cycle.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Please provide your resume and 3 references.
