Postdoctoral Fellow

A postdoctoral fellow position in microbiology and immunology is immediately available in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and immunology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Our research program focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of vaccine-induced protective immunity against Coxiella burnetii infection and developing a safe and effective vaccine against human Q fever. Current studies include NIH funded and pending projects: 1) use of a humanized antibody against intracellular bacterial pathogen; 2) understanding the role of dendritic cells in regulating vaccine-induced protective immunity against Q fever; 3) use of mimetic peptides vaccines against aerosol-transmitted bacterial pathogens; and 4) use systems biology approach to dissect the mechanisms of vaccine-induced protective immunity against Q fever. Applicants should have a Ph.D degree in microbiology, cell biology, immunology, or a related field. Experience in small animal models and host immune responses to microbial pathogens is preferred. The successful candidates will use systems biology approach to study the mechanisms of vaccine-induced protective immunity against Q fever. Ample training opportunities exist in our laboratory, at the department level as well as at the University level. To apply, e-mail cover letter, curriculum vitae, and names/phone numbers of three references to: Guoquan Zhang, DVM., Ph.D., via email: guoquan.zhang@utsa.edu.
