Studies include:

  • Vaccine studies performed by the NIH and its Vaccine Testing and Evaluation Unit (VTEU)

Director Expectations:

  • Maintain CLIA and CAP certification of the laboratory
  • Enable innovative clinical trials designs through close interactions with multiple investigators

  • Have an understanding of major federal, industry, and foundation sources of funding
  • Skills in manuscript preparation and publication
  • Supervise an outstanding group of research assistants and research associates in the evaluation of human trials samples including processing and testing

This is a faculty position offered to outstanding PhD or MD candidates at the Assistant, Associate, or Professor level.
