Post-doctoral Training Fellowship, full time non-tenure-track at the University of Georgia, Center for Vaccines and Immunology (http://vet.uga.edu/cvi) Position involves leading a research team on the assess effectiveness and understanding the mechanisms of current and newly designed Universal or Broadly-Reactive Influenza Vaccines in humans. Studies will focus on research in the areas of immunology, vaccine development, molecular biology, and/or virology to participate in a large multi-PI funded project on vaccine development and vaccine induced immune responses in pre-clinical and clinical cohorts. Areas of interest are seasonal and pre-pandemic influenza. Fellow position will involve contemporary and emerging technologies in influenza immunology and vaccine design and analysis in the new state-of-the-art laboratories. Studies will use expertise in serology, flow cytometry, B and T cell immunology for analysis of acute and memory responses to determination of B cell clonotypes, development and analysis of monoclonal antibodies for epitope mapping and co-crystallization, and determine the underlying mechanisms of Universal Influenza candidates in both healthy adult and high-risk populations. There is a possibility of working with small animals, blood, and tissue samples. Capacity for independent work and ability to interact productively with colleagues are important.
