Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Immunology and Vaccines

Responsibilities

We seek outstanding Postdoctoral Fellows interested in studying the activation, proliferation and competition of diverse vaccine-specific B cell clonal lineages in the germinal centers and in developing approaches to guide the maturation of lineages that produce protective antibodies. The work includes studies in transgenic animals and humans. 

Major duties:

  1. Conceptualize, plan and execute immunization studies in suitable murine models 
  2. Analyze B and T cell immune responses in animals and humans 
  3. Demonstrate a thorough understanding of the scientific literature relating to the research topics.
  4. Participate in manuscript and grant writing.

Qualifications

A PhD in Immunology is preferred.  The applicants must have a strong background in immunology, with emphasis on T and B cell immunity. Previous work with knock-in or transgenic murine models is highly desirable and expertise in B cell receptor sequence analysis is a plus. Ability to work independently within a very collaborative environment is critical, as are strong written, communication and organizational skills. Salary will be commensurate with appropriate experience. 

Applicants must submit:

  1. Cover letter discussing your interest in this position
  2. Curriculum Vitae
  3. Statement of research interests and career goals
  4. Names and contact information of at least three references
