Postdoctoral position available in Dr. Jiang Zhu’s laboratory for highly motivated candidates who are interested in vaccine development for viral (HIV-1, HCV, Ebola, Lassa, Zika, Dengue, Flu, RSV, and MERS-CoV) and non-viral (malaria and tuberculosis) pathogens. Postdoctoral salary is in the range of $54,000 to $60,000 depending on prior research experience and qualifications.
