RESEARCH ASSOCIATE/POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

Postdoctoral opportunities to study molecular mechanisms of immune evasion
by microbial pathogens, with emphasis on Trypanosoma cruzi and Pneumocystis
pneumoniae.   Projects include molecular analysis of virulence factors,
characterization of the immune response to vaccine candidates, molecular
modeling of membrane proteins involved in immune evasion, use of
combinatorial peptide and immunoglobulin libraries for the generation of
immunotherapeutic reagents, design of DNA vaccines and bacterial antigen
delivery systems as vaccine vehicles.

QUALIFICATIONS:
Ph.D. in microbiology, immunology or related fields.
Position requires microbiologic/immunologic background and experience in
molecular biology and/or protein biochemistry.  Experience in cell culture,
PCR, electrophoresis, molecular biological and immunological techniques is
helpful.


ADDITIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
Supervision of research associates and graduate students

Writing manuscripts and participation in preparing research proposals

Utilization of computer software for nucleic acid and protein analysis, word
processing, routine statistical analysis, graphics, and communications.

APPLICATIONS:
Forward curriculum vitae,
description of research interests and goals, and the names, addresses,
and phone numbers of three references to:
