Collaboration and inclusive excellence are hallmarks of discovery at Ohio State and help distinguish us as a national flagship public research university.


    NIH-funded Postdoctoral Position in Mucosal/Virology Immunology
    An NIH post-doctoral research position is available immediately in the laboratory of Drs. Linda J. Saif and Anastasia Vlasova of The Ohio State University for a recent PhD trained in mucosal/viral immunology. Research focus is on mucosal immunity to enteric viruses (rotavirus, coronavirus, etc) and mucosal viral vaccines in pregnant sows in the context of animal models for human disease and vaccines. Emphasis is on passive immunity (maternal vaccines) and immunomodulators (adjuvants, micronutrients, probiotics, etc), including vitamin A, that enhance vaccines and reduce disease in nursing neonates. Additional training/experience in virology and in vitro cell culture and animal models is also desired. Our laboratory focuses on comprehensive and integrated studies of innate and adaptive mucosal immune responses in neonates to enteric viral pathogens and vaccines and the impact of gut commensals/probiotics/micronutrients on these responses. Immune correlates of protection are assessed by viral challenge of neonatal animals.

    Three Postdoctoral Fellow Positions in Dr. Collins' Lab
    Three NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow positions are available to study mechanisms of HIV persistence Dr. Collins’ lab in the Department of Internal Medicine University of Michigan Medical School. NIH-funded projects include: (1) Development of strategies to promote immune clearance; (2) identification of sources of persistent virus and (3) single cell analysis of in vivo viral reservoirs and in vitro models of latency. Funded projects are also available to understand (1) the role of Vpr in macrophages and (2) interactions between infected lymphocytes and intestinal barrier epithelium.

    University of Michigan Medical School Postdoc Position in the Fields of Virus Assembly and Virus-Cell Interactions
    NIH-funded postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Akira Ono at the University of Michigan Medical School. We investigate the molecular mechanisms regulating assembly and exit of enveloped viruses, in particular HIV-1 and influenza A virus.

    Postdoctoral position at Emory University
    A postdoctoral position is available at the Emory University School of Medicine to join an innovative laboratory that studies the mechanism of enveloped virus entry into cells and its antagonism by host restriction factors.

    Postdoctoral Researcher position in mosquito-microbe interactions at Ohio State
    The Short lab at Ohio State University is now hiring a postdoctoral researcher to study mosquito-microbe interactions! Ongoing projects in the lab include the effect of environmental factors on mosquito microbiota formation, mosquito tolerance to infection, and the interactions between sex, mating, and pathogenic infection. The successful candidate will expand work investigating the interplay between nutrition, microbiota, and viral susceptibility in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. They will also be expected to develop independent projects that build upon the laboratory’s ongoing work.

    Two NIH-funded postdoctoral researcher positions are available in Dr. Wozniak’s lab at Ohio State
    Two NIH-funded postdoctoral researcher positions are available in Dr. Wozniak’s lab in the departments of Microbial Infection and Immunity and Microbiology at The Ohio State University. Individuals will study Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Staphylococcus aureus biofilms, pathogenesis, and the innate immune response to these pathogens. Projects will focus on either; therapeutic strategies, animal models, neutrophil-biofilm interactions, or biofilm matrix components and their role in biofilm community structure and function.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position in the Department of Pathology at the University of Pennsylvania
    The O’Doherty laboratory in the Department of Pathology at the University of Pennsylvania is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow to lead an NIH-funded project investigating mechanisms of HIV persistence on antiviral therapy. The goal of this work is to explore how HIV infection affects the fate of a cell, specifically how it influences the chance that the infected cell will live, die or divide.
