Postdoctoral Fellow
Deadline: 1 Jan 2038
Emory Vaccine Center
Developing a vaccine to halt the AIDS epidemic is a key part of the mission of the Emory Vaccine Center, and much of the research at the EVC relates to this effort. Scientists specializing in basic immunology strive to elucidate the fundamental workings of the immune system and how it responds to infection. Other investigators examine the interaction between HIV and the immune cells it attacks in order to identify ways to prevent or interrupt the process by which the virus destroys the immune system.

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Cynthia Derdeyn, located within the Emory Vaccine Center at Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta, GA. The Derdeyn laboratory is part of a large, multi-investigator NIH-funded program project focused on antibody-mediated protection against a mucosal SIV challenge. A highly motivated individual is sought to participate in this exciting, multi-disciplinary research project that will examine how antibodies and B cells protect against acquisition in a nonhuman primate model of immunization using state of the art techniques.


Candidates must have a Ph.D. with expertise in molecular biology, immunology, and/or virology and possess excellent organizational skills as well as effective oral and written communication skills. A background in HIV/SIV is desirable.
