USDA-ARS Postdoctoral Fellowship in Virology

(Ref#: USDA-ARS-2022-0190)


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

Research Project: The purpose of this project is to A) Identify avian reovirus (ARV) determinants of virulence associated with arthritis and tenosynovitis in poultry production and B) characterize host-pathogen interactions associated with infectious bursal disease (IBD) virus strain variation, immunosuppression, and pathogenesis. The selected participant will contribute research to our effort to 1) develop reverse genetics system for IBD and ARV; 2) characterize the recombinant viruses and conduct pathogenicity study, and 3) characterize viral genes associated with immunosuppression.

The selected candidate will have the opportunity to interact with a multidisciplinary team within the US National Poultry Research Center in Athens, GA, as well as our sister unit, the Avian Disease and Oncology Laboratory and will have the opportunity to present research findings within the center and at professional meetings.
