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.

    2 Postdoctoral Researchers
    Two NIH-funded postdoctoral researcher positions are available in Dr. Li Wu’s lab in the Center for Retrovirus Research at The Ohio State University (OSU) to study HIV interactions with host factors.
