Postdoctoral Positions - Vaccine Development Research
The Center for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology at the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University is seeking applications for postdoctoral investigators.
- An expanding innovative vaccine development research program http://cidv.biodesign.asu.edu is focused on the design, construction, and evaluation of recombinant attenuated Salmonella antigen and DNA vaccine delivery vaccines to induce mucosal, systemic and/or cellular immune responses, as appropriate, to confer protection to agriculturally important animals and humans to a diversity of bacterial, viral, and parasite pathogens.
- Current endeavors are directed at remodeling Salmonella outer membrane to develop universal vaccines to prevent infections by enteric pathogens such as Salmonella, Escherichia pathovars, Shigella sp., and investigating the effects of the alteration of fatty acid length in Salmonella lipid A on their virulence and immunogenicity and developing novel vaccine adjuvants.
Positions Vacant for postdoctoral investigators with a strong motivation to reducing global morbidity and mortality to infectious diseases and who possess exceptional talents as innovative, self-reliant research investigators.
