Postdoctoral Position

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Center for Immunology and Microbial Disease at Albany Medical College, Albany, New York, focused on vaccine development against infection with intracellular Francisella tularensis, a Category A mucosal pathogen. F. tularensis studies are part of a larger NIH-funded P01 project within the Center, focused on studying the mucosal immunopathogenesis of F. tularensis, and will specifically focus on improving the efficacy of an Fc receptor-targeted vaccine against this organism, as well as understanding the in vivo, immunological, and cell biological mechanisms responsible for protection.  

 

Albany Medical College has a close relationship with the New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Laboratories, providing a diverse environment rich in infectious disease expertise. Albany is a mid-sized city within the upstate New York Capital Region, and has easy access to Boston, New York City, and the Adirondack and Berkshire Mountains.
