The Bystroff laboratory @ RPI is developing a vaccine for immuno-contraception in women and girls. We design antigenic proteins and assess the contraceptive potential of immunity against those proteins in collaboration with a prominent reproductive biology lab. We seek talented researchers for a postdoctoral appointment of 1-3 years with experience in cloning and protein expression in yeast, protein purification and antibody techniques. Our team is committed to developing a contraceptive vaccine for global distribution, to combat overpopulation and its downstream effects on the environment. If you share this vision, we welcome your application.
