A post doctoral Research Officer (Immunologist/Cell Biologist) is offered in the Department of Veterinary Pathology & Public Health, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand.  The project is based in the bovine tuberculosis research laboratory and is primarily concerned with the isolation and study of mycobacterial genes that code for proteins that may be useful in tuberculosis vaccine development. A focus of the work is to screen peripheral blood lymphocytes of cattle immunized with Mycobacterium bovis BCG against secreted proteins from an M. bovis cosmid library. We are also interested in the interactions between mycobacteria and host macrophages. Candidates with a keen interest in microbial pathogenesis and host immune responses to infection are encouraged to apply. The laboratory provides a stimulating environment for research and is well equipped for molecular biology and immunology projects. Three post-doctoral research officers, 2 PhD students and 2 technicians work within the lab. We are engaged in collaborative research projects with other groups in New Zealand and Europe. This position is sponsored by The Agricultural and Marketing Research and Development Trust Of New Zealand.
