Postdoctoral IRTA Position

Structural Bioinformatics Core Section, Vaccine Research Center, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

A postdoctoral intramural research training award (IRTA) position is available in the Structural Bioinformatics Core Section (SBIS), part of a multidisciplinary research environment at the Vaccine Research Center, in the areas of computational biology and structural bioinformatics.

The main objective of the SBIS is to assist in designing vaccines and antibody therapeutics against HIV and other viruses such as influenza and respiratory syncytial viruses. The selected candidates will collaborate extensively with experimental sections to develop new methods for computational vaccine and antibody design. The candidate should have knowledge in bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and proficiency in C or C++ and in Python or Perl. In addition, he or she should have prior experience in at least four of the following computation areas:

  • Computational protein design
  • Molecular dynamics simulation of glycoproteins
  • Homology modeling
  • Protein docking
  • Machine learning/data mining
  • Biostatistics

Trainees will receive a stipend commensurate with their experience and health insurance benefits. Successful applicants should be highly self-motivated and have a recent doctoral degree (obtained within last five years) in bioinformatics, computational chemistry, or a closely related field from a U.S. or foreign university. Applicants may be U.S. citizens or permanent residents; for a visiting fellowship, visa requirements apply.
