The Ivanovic lab investigates the molecular mechanisms of viral cell entry in the context of influenza virus and reovirus. With the focus on fundamental aspects of enveloped-virus membrane fusion and nonenveloped-virus membrane penetration, we seek to understand adaptive changes in essential viral mechanisms that result in viral pandemics or resistance to antivirals. We apply and develop advanced biophysical and biochemical approaches and combine them with those of virology, molecular biology and cell biology.

Job openings:


  • Postdoc opening:

The Chandran Lab
(Einstein, NY) and the Ivanovic Lab (Brandeis, MA) seek to co-host a postdoctoral researcher interested in gaining interdisciplinary experience in research on Ebola virus membrane fusion.

Qualified candidates should email Tijana Ivanovic (ivanovic AT brandeis DOT edu) and Kartik Chandran (kartik DOT chandran AT einstein DOT yu DOT edu) directly with a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references.
