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.
