The candidate will join the “Immunity of retroviral infection in humans” group headed by Florence Buseyne in EPVO unit in Paris. She/He will interact with members from VIST. The candidate will perform an in-depth characterization of SFV strains infecting humans with a focus on individuals infected with at least two strains belonging to the two genotypes. First, digital PCR assays will be established to quantify SFV DNA from both genotypes. Secondly, after the determination of the structure of Env, the candidate will define the genotype- specific epitopes on the Env and will develop novel serological assays for coinfection diagnosis.
