We are interested in postdoctoral scholars and graduate students to study the molecular and cellular basis for activation of adaptive immune response by carbohydrate antigens. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to learn and apply immunological and biochemical tools to study key mechanisms by which carbohydrate antigens induce adaptive and innate immune response. Based on the mechanisms discovered, we will design and develop knowledge-based, new-generation vaccines and therapeutics and test their efficacy through in vitro and in vivo disease models.

For postdoctoral researchers experience in working with mice and broad understanding of Immunology and/or Microbiology research are preferred. Competitive salary and benefits are available and will commensurate with experience. Current graduate students should contact Dr. Avci. If you are a prospective graduate student please visit UGA Integrated Life Sciences Program.

University of Georgia offers a highly collaborative, top-notch training and research environment in biomedical sciences. CCRC is a world-renowned research center in Glycosciences. CMM was recently inaugurated to be a leader in biomedical research, with a goal to understand the molecular and cellular basis of human disease and use this information for the development of new therapies, cures and diagnostics.

Interested candidates should email their Curriculum vitae, a letter of interest outlining experience and research goals, and the names and contact information of three references to avcilab@gmail.com.

The University of Georgia is an EEO/AA institution.
