The Pathogenesis and Immunity Section in the Laboratory of Malaria Immunology and Vaccinology at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has a position open for a postdoctoral scientist. The individual will be part of the placental malaria and severe malaria programs, and will conduct molecular parasitology, pathogenesis, and immunology studies of malaria in mothers and offspring, with a specific focus on maternal-fetal interactions during pregnancy malaria that impact outcomes for the offspring during early life. Resources available for these projects include data and samples from human prospective cohort studies with intensive surveillance of malaria outcomes in African mothers and their newborns, as well as animal models that reproduce features of pregnancy malaria.

Applicants should have a strong background in molecular parasitology or immunology. Previous experience with malaria, animal models, parasite culture, and parasite manipulation is useful.
