The majority of this research will focus on immune signatures of protection from and susceptibility to dengue fever and tuberculosis in latently, or acutely infected or vaccinated individuals as part of a large NIH-funded collaborative project.
The overall research in the department continues to connect modern biochemistry and genomic discoveries to translational medicine, leading to a unique multidisciplinary research program in biochemistry and molecular medicine
The successful candidate will work independently within a diverse collaborative group and will combine biochemical, cell biological and in vivo experimental approaches to understand the functional immunological processes related to autoimmunity.
The research will involve the development of novel computational methods for analysis of next-generation sequencing datasets produced by the Vijayanand lab in relation to gene regulation in immune cells.
Support early career scientists who are interested in GNSS remote sensing and would like to begin their career working within a group of scientists with research interests ranging from new retrieval technology, space weather, numerical weather prediction, and climate processes.
Support a team of toxicologists in overseeing human, environmental, and physical chemical testing projects with 3rd party laboratories including assessment of new data to meet regulatory reporting obligations.
Candidates should have a doctoral degree and at least one first-author paper published or accepted in a peer-reviewed journal, with technical expertise in techniques like x-ray crystallography, SPR, ITC, DSF, cloning, expression, purification and characterization of proteins.
Identify correlates of immune responses through studying blood samples (PBMC) from individuals previously exposed to the allergen/pathogen, currently experiencing active disease, or who have been vaccinated.
