University of Georgia Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Immunology and Vaccinology

Fikri Avci, PhD
Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM), Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC)
University of Georgia
315 Riverbend Rd.
Athens, GA 30602 United States

A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. Fikri Avci to study the molecular and cellular basis for activation of adaptive immune response by carbohydrate antigens. Successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn and apply immunological and biochemical tools to study key mechanisms by which carbohydrate antigens induce adaptive immune response. Based on the mechanisms discovered, we will design and develop knowledge-based, new-generation vaccines and test their protection in several disease models. Our research program is constructed around our recent discovery of the mechanism for glycoconjugate vaccine mediated adaptive immune response (Nature Medicine 17, 1602; Nature Protocols 7, 2180; Seminars in Immunology 25, 146).
Qualified applicants are expected to hold a recent doctoral degree in the biological sciences, or in related disciplines. Prior experience in working with mice and broad understanding of Immunology and/or Microbiology research are highly preferred. Competitive salary and benefits are available and will commensurate with experience.
University of Georgia offers a highly collaborative, top-notch training and research environment in biomedical sciences. CCRC is a world-renowned research center in Glycosciences. CMM was recently inaugurated to be a leader in biomedical research, with a goal to understand the molecular and cellular basis of human disease and use this information for the development of new therapies, cures and diagnostics.
Interested candidates should email their Curriculum vitae, a letter of interest outlining experience and research goals, and the names and contact information of three references to avcilab@gmail.com.
The University of Georgia is an EEO/AA institution.
