A post-doctoral fellowship position is available immediately in the Verthelyi Lab in the Office of Biotechnology Products (OBP) at the Center for Drugs Evaluations and Research, US-FDA.

The fellow will be working in a new model for Zika virus infection.
The optimal candidate will have expertise in immunology, neuroimmunology, molecular biology, and/or the development and use of animal models. Experience in large data analysis and model validation is desirable. Independence, initiative, and excellent writing and communication skills are a must.
This position will be appointed for one year via a fellowship from ORISE (see http://orise.orau.gov/fda/), with the potential for renewal on an annual basis (contingent on excellent performance).
