The University of Pittsburgh Center for Vaccine Research has an exciting opportunity for a motivated, skilled and independent individual to study highly pathogenic H5N1 influenza virus infection in nonhuman primates.

The federally funded project will use novel approaches targeting innate immunity to prevent severe disease in a newly developed macaque model of aerosolized influenza virus infection. This highly translational work could lead to an effective host-directed therapy that blocks virus-induced acute lung injury and prevents pandemic spread of influenza. The work will be conducted in the University of Pittsburgh Regional Biocontainment Laboratory, a state-of-the-art biomedical facility that has aerobiology and molecular imaging capabilities for primates at animal biosafety level 3.

Candidates should have a PhD, MD, DVM or equivalent and have a background in cellular immunology and/or virology. Experience with animal models is desirable. The position requires security clearance as mandated by the Federal Select Agent Program. The University of Pittsburgh is ranked fifth in the nation in NIH funding and has a vibrant medical research community. Pittsburgh Pennsylvania consistently ranks among the top places to live and work in the United States. Please email a letter with names and contact information of three references along with your CV to: Dr. Simon Barratt-Boyes, Center for Vaccine Research, University of Pittsburgh, smbb@pitt.edu.
