Postdoctoral Position - Virus-Host Cell Interaction

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral position to work on a newly discovered cellular antiviral defense mechanism. By studying the regulatory HBx protein of hepatitis B virus, we found that the Smc5/6 complex, which has important roles in chromosome maintenance, also functions as a host restriction factor against hepatitis B and possibly other pathogenic viruses. It binds to the hepatitis B virus circular DNA genome and more generally to any episomal DNA to block transcription and, thus, viral infection. Hepatitis B virus counters this host defense by encoding the HBx protein that targets the Smc5/6 complex for destruction. We now wish to explore how the Smc5/6 complex detects and binds selectively to episomal DNA templates and not to chromosomal DNA and how, once bound, it silences transcription.
