A postdoctoral position is available for the study of cellular immunity to viral infections. Areas of research include, 1) defining the roles of CD4 T cell help in programming robust anti-viral CD8 T cell responses, 2) determining how viral load and the duration of antigenic exposure effect the development and function of CD8 T cell subsets and, 3) investigating T cell recruitment during protective secondary immune responses. These studies are primarily focused on animal model systems; however, possibilities exist to develop collaborations to perform complementary studies on human immune responses. The position provides a great opportunity for career growth and the ability to interact with other interdisciplinary researchers. Enthusiastic, motivated individuals with an interest in immunology or virology are encouraged to apply. For further information or to apply please contact Dr. Allan J. Zajac. E-mail:azajac@uab.edu
