A postdoctoral fellowship position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jonah Sacha within the Vaccine & Gene Therapy Institute and the Oregon National Primate Research Center at the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon. This position will support a newly funded research project focusing on testing a new, clinically relevant approach to HIV cure and prevention. The successful candidate will join a highly productive and interactive research group exploring transplant immunology, Cytomegalovirus vaccine vector-induced immunity, and HIV virology using the macaque model of human disease.
Planning, executing, and analyzing experiments for independent research project(s) using electrophysiology, molecular, cellular, and live imaging approaches in the mammalian auditory system.
Manuscript preparation for individual projects and assisting other lab members with manuscripts as needed.
Assisting the PI and other lab members with grant application (data acquisition, writing assistance, editing) as needed.
Traveling to national and international meetings to present on findings.
Helping to mentor and train junior members of the laboratory.
Key responsibilities for this position include:
- Planning and designing research experiments: establishing priorities and recommending schedules, time tables and costs
- Data collection, processing and analysis, including statistical analyses
- Presentation of project results, and producing written reports on the result of analyses
- Train and supervise staff, graduate assistants, and student employees
Compensation for this position will be determined by the NIH guidelines.
Investigates transporters using a combination of biochemical, spectroscopic and structural approaches. The position provides a unique opportunity to enhance a candidate's skill set with the techniques for unnatural amino acid mutagenesis. Responsibilities include:
- Biochemical studies on structure, function and dynamics of transporters
- Data analysis/manuscript preparation/ assisting with grant writing
