The Valley Fever Center for Excellence of the University of Arizona is
offering a postdoctoral position to study mechanisms of pathogenesis for
the dimorphic fungal pathogen Coccidioides immitis, using current molecular

C. immitis is the causative agent of coccidioidomycosis (valley fever) in
humans and other mammals.  Immunity often controls infection but in some
persons disease is serious and difficult to cure.  The successful candidate
will apply molecular tools to understand the basic biology of this organism
and its infection process.  It is likely that the information gained could
lead to new approaches towards therapy and prevention of disease.

The postdoctoral position is available immediately.  Candidates should have
a PhD or an MD, and previous experience in molecular techniques. 
Experience in fungal genetics is highly desirable.  The candidate will work
with Dr. John Galgiani and Dr. Marc Orbach, both of the University of
Arizona.  Applicants should submit a CV including the names of three
references to either faculty member:
