Job description I currently have a postdoctoral/scientist position available in my laboratory in the Division of Bacterial and Rickettsial Diseases at the Walter Read Army Institute of Research, Silver Spring, MD. If you know of qualified persons who might be interested in research concerning immunology of bacterial vaccine and who are looking for a position, please convey this message. For the past several years, my group has been developing antigen protein array of bacteria and primarily screening them for antigenicity against cells and serum from experimentally infected animals and patients in order to identify the principle antigens that elicit an cellular immunity from cells or that are recognized by antibodies. In parallel, we have been conducting studies in human and rodent models of immune modulation induced by recombinant protein. Our most recent research involves studies of Th1-type cellular immune response induced by selected bacterial antigens may be, in part, responsible for the prevention of intracellula bacteria caused infection. Thus, the focus of the current work is to develop new version of recombinant vaccine and therapeutic reagents in human subjects.
Qualification The postdoctoral candidate, with either Ph.D. or MD degree, should have a solid training in construction recombinant protein, cellular and molecular immunology, and animal study - both conceptual and experimental. The candidate should (1) demonstrate independence of thinking, planning and executing experiments; (2) be willing to work in a team consisting of other scientists, clinicians, and technologists; (3) exhibit good organizational, writing and speaking skills.
Education requirement Ph.D.
