Postdoctoral Associate (Molecular Bacteriology & Immunology), Duke University
The Duke Human Vaccine Institute is currently recruiting for a Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Bacteriology and Immunology. We are seeking a highly motivated recent graduate to join our project to develop practical novel vector-based vaccines for HIV-1. The project involves the design, optimization, and evaluation of novel recombinant mycobacteria vectors (rMycobacteria) that elicit durable systemic and mucosal immune responses that are not suppressed by pre-existing anti-vector immunity.
Requirements: Qualified candidates with a PhD and/or MD and experience with Immunology assays/methods (in particular, Humoral immune response), Microbiology, Genetics and/or Molecular Biology techniques are encouraged to apply.
