  • Post Doctoral Position - Academic
Job Type/Arrangement:
  • Full Time
Description:

The Rajao/Perez Lab in the Department of Population Health at the University of Georgia is recruiting two highly motivated postdoctoral scholars to work in viral immunology. Our lab’s research interests focus on the interspecies transmission, pathogenesis and control of influenza viruses. Our laboratory uses a wide range of in vitro and in vivo approaches to study influenza virus host range and improve existing or new vaccines and antivirals. We have developed several vaccine platforms against influenza viruses or SARS-CoV-2, including vaccines to enhance the mucosal immune response. The postdocs will work directly with immunology experiments to evaluate the response of the vaccines developed by the lab. The candidates will also be involved with other projects in the lab. The postdoctoral fellows will work with an international collaborative group of students, postdocs and researchers and interact with many other virologists at the University of Georgia and other national and international collaborators.

Benefits:
Vaccine design and development, reverse genetics of RNA viruses.
