Multiple funded postdoctoral positions are available in the Emerging Virus Immunity Unit in the Laboratory of Viral Diseases (LVD) within the Division of Intramural Research (DIR) at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). LVD offers an outstanding intellectual and research environment with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in the backdrop of the resources and collaborative atmosphere of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our group studies immunity to emerging RNA viruses focusing on the interplay between antibodies and the innate and adaptive immune response. These studies include identifying correlates of immunity, antibody effector functions, and viral pathogenesis primarily using mouse models of alphavirus infection. The projects for the successful candidates will use a variety of approaches, including but not limited to mouse models, molecular biology, flow cytometry, antibody purification, and LC-MS. This work will provide insight into novel vaccine and therapeutic approaches.
• Ph.D. in virology, immunology, or related disciplines with less than five years postdoctoral experience
• Ability to carry out independent research
• A record of publishing in peer-reviewed journals
• Expertise in virology, cell culture, and molecular biology
• Experience handing small animals
• Experience in flow cytometry
To apply, interested candidates should send a single file containing their cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV), and the names of three or more references to Julie Fox, Ph.D., at Julie.Fox@nih.gov.
