This position requires independent planning of vaccine research projects while receiving training to enhance skills and research independence in pursuit of a professional career. Preferred candidates are expected to have research experiences in the fields of molecular biology, reverse genetics (influenza virus, human respiratory syncytial virus), development of vaccine vectors, recombinant modified vaccinia virus Ankara, and immunology (multicolor flow cytometry). The specific area of research projects includes recombinant influenza vaccines inducing cross protection against influenza virus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) using reverse genetics as well as immunology of vaccines, adjuvants, and viruses. The trainee will be highly encouraged to submit their own fellowships and grant applications during their period of training.
Preferred QUALIFICATIONS. A doctoral degree and related vaccine research fields with strong molecular virology on recombinant vectors (rMVA), reverse genetics (influenza virus, RSV), immunology, or vaccinology. Highly desirable candidates are expected to have excellent publication records and scientific writing ability. Applicants eligible for applying grants/fellowships are preferable.
