Vaccine ResearchPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Jan-11
The Biodefense Research Section (BRS) at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Vaccine Research Center (VRC), located on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, has an immediate opening for a creative and self-motivated postdoctoral fellow in viral immunology to study vaccine -induced and natural immunity to Ebola virus. Projects include study of T-cells and antibodies, B-cell development and antibody ontogeny in a Biosafety Level (BSL) 2 setting.
The recent outbreaks of Ebola in West Africa has focused attention on the development of safe and effective vaccines and therapeutics against filovirus disease and other hemorrhagic fever viruses. The BRS (Sullivan Laboratory) has developed monoclonal antibodies (mAb) and gene-based vaccines that protect macaques against Ebola infection and are undergoing clinical development in cooperation with VRC teams at the NIH Clinical Center and in Africa. The BRS evaluates macaque and human vaccine responses to identify innate, humoral, and cellular correlates of protection, and uses the macaque model to define the molecular basis of mAb and vaccine protection.
Salary depends on qualifications and years of postdoctoral experience. All candidates must be within 5 years of receiving their highest degree.Qualifications:
