Postdoctoral Position in Malaria Functional Genomics Section (MFGS)

Laboratory of Malaria and Vector Research

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

A postdoctoral intramural research training award (IRTA) position is available immediately for an outstanding candidate to study host responses to malaria infection in the Malaria Functional Genomics Section (MFGS), Laboratory of Malaria and Vector Research at NIAID.

The main interests in the MFGS are the mechanisms and regulation of host responses and pathogenesis during malaria infections. Projects in the MFGS utilize genetic/genomic, immunological, and molecular approaches to study host genes in various signaling pathways and to identify parasite genes that cause various disease phenotypes (virulence).

Applicants should have obtained a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree within the past five years and have experience in the study of immunopathology or in maintaining and genetic manipulation of malaria parasites. Preferred candidates will have experience in the studying pathways of interferon signaling, cell death, or genetic (such as CRISPR-Cas9) modification of parasite genome. Strong writing and speaking skills are also of critical importance.

To Apply                                                                                                                                                          Please submit a CV, bibliography, cover letter with a brief description of research experience and interests, and three letters of reference to Dr. Xin-zhuan Su, xsu@niaid.nih.gov.
