The Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute (VGTI) at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) has assembled a multidisciplinary team of scientists to respond to serious viral disease threats, including AIDS, chronic viral infection-associated diseases, newly emerging viral diseases and infectious diseases of the elderly. Our programs are intended to span the continuum between basic and clinical science, in which discoveries are rapidly advanced from the level of molecular and cellular biology through animal models and ultimately into clinical testing. The development of this unique program in immunology and virology provides an important training opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at OHSU. This is why an important part of our mission is the training of young scientists in newer academic disciplines emerging at the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute.
This position will lead a growing program of malaria immunology and vaccine development that spans in vitro, mouse and non-human primate models at the Vaccine & Gene Therapy Institute and Oregon National Primate Research Center. The successful candidate will have experience in planning, managing, and executing the research needs of complex, collaborative projects. In addition to this oversight of the project, additional duties include managing and/or performing the laboratory procedures associated with the study, as well as data entry, statistical analysis, and reporting of findings in both written and oral formats. The successful candidate will also assist in grant writing, grant management, and publication of results.
Doctoral degree in relevant field and 3 years of relevant post-doctoral work experience
Experience designing and performing immunology-based experiments.
