UMD Postdoc in Malaria Immunity Systems Biology

Posted: 06 12, 2017

Description:

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Malaria Immunity Systems Biology

The focus of the postdoctoral fellowship is to evaluate the development of protection against human malaria using a systems biology approach in a collaborative project between the Williamson Laboratory at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, The University of Maryland, and the Center for Human Immunology at the National Institutes of Health.

Immunophenotyping, transcriptional profiling and Ig repertoire analysis will be used to assess the maturation of the humoral and cellular immune response through repetitive controlled human malaria infections. The results will be compared with clinical outcomes to identify specific responses that correlate with protection and the information used to develop new vaccine strategies.

Job Duties:

This unique position will provide the postdoctoral fellow with both traditional research experience, as well as clinical research coordination management experience. 

Qualifications:

A PhD and background in immunology or systems biology is required. 

To Apply:

Interested candidates should send a CV and contact information for 3 references to Kim Williamson, kim.williamson@usuhs.edu. 

The position is supported by the Henry Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine to work in the Williamson Lab at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology in Bethesda, MD.
