Job Description

The Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI), an international leader in the fight against major infectious diseases, is currently recruiting for Postdoctoral Associates to join our research team. The Duke Human Vaccine Institute is an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental institute dedicated to the study of basic and translational science required to understand host-pathogen interactions that can be translated to vaccines against human diseases. Directed by Dr. Barton Haynes, we are a team of highly interactive investigators that have expertise in immunology, molecular biology, virology, microbiology, computational biology, and vaccine science.

The Duke Human Vaccine Institute team aims to further HIV-1 vaccine development with the goal of inducing long-lasting broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) as well as T cell responses that can prevent HIV-1 infection with the goal of identifying correlates of protection and informing vaccine design. Experience in molecular biology and/or cellular immunology is preferred. Other projects include design of molecules that can target the latent pool of HIV-infected T cells.

The DHVI has a dynamic mentoring program, and our postdoctoral associates work in concert with Duke faculty and staff in an invigorating research training environment. One of our primary scientific missions is to support and train early stage investigators to be the next generation of scientific leaders equipped to identify and implement solutions for improving human health worldwide.

DHVI functions as a vaccine development biotechnology enterprise, embedded within a top university. As a trainee within our mentoring program, you will interact with highly innovative and collaborative investigators and have the opportunity to master state of the art technologies. We are committed to providing an outstanding training environment and research experiences that will enhance your career and provide you an avenue to incorporate your education, expertise, initiative and dedication to the success of the studies. This is an opportunity to become part of a winning team that is working to discover novel ways to prevent infectious diseases.

Job Requirements
