Description Position: Postdoctoral Scholar - Employee

Location: University of California, Berkeley, CA

Salary: Commensurate with experience

Target Start Date: October 2020

The School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley seeks application for a Postdoctoral Scholar, in the area of Infectious Disease and Vaccinology. This is a full-time position with an expected start date in Fall 2020

The Harris lab takes a multidisciplinary approach to study virology, pathogenesis, immunology, clinical aspects, epidemiology, and control of dengue, Zika, and chikungunya, the most prevalent arboviral diseases in humans. The work addresses viral and host factors that modulate disease severity and investigates immune correlates of protection and pathogenesis using in vitro approaches, animal models, and research involving human populations.

Responsibilities:

The candidate will investigate the B cell and antibody response, dynamics, and repertoire in natural human dengue (DENV) and Zika virus (ZIKV) infections as part of a long-term longitudinal pediatric cohort and hospital-based studies of dengue and Zika in Nicaragua. For example, we have observed asymmetries in protection and enhancement based on the sequence of infection with different DENV serotypes and ZIKV and we seek to explain these phenomena by analyzing the B cell and antibody repertoire in samples collected after different infection sequences as well as in relation to the virion structure of the subsequent infecting virus. Further, analysis of long-term antibody dynamics post-DENV and ZIKV infection has revealed different patterns of persistence versus decay, and we aim to define the antibody, B cell, and Tfh cell characteristics that determine the longevity of distinct antibody classes post-primary and post-secondary infection. The position may also involve assessment of the protective capacity of human monoclonal antibodies in murine models of DENV and ZIKV infection and disease. Overall, these studies involve collaborative investigations in the context of a Program Project on mechanisms of protective (and potentially pathogenic) flavivirus immunity in human populations.

Basic qualifications (at the time of application):

Ph.D. (or equivalent international degree), or enrolled in a Ph.D. (or equivalent international degree) granting program at the time of application

Additional qualifications (required by start date):

Preferred qualifications:

Ph.D. in one of a variety of fields, including but not limited to Immunology, Virology and/or Microbiology

Experience in adaptive immune response and methods such as flow cytometry/FACS, ELISpot, etc.

Demonstrated substantial laboratory experience in human and/or murine immunology

The anticipated start date is on or after October 01, 2020. Salary is commensurate with experience.

The position will remain open until filled.
