STUDENT AND POSTDOCTORAL OPPORTUNITIES

The Fellow will work on projects involving mosquito-borne chikungunya virus and SARS-CoV-2. Chikungunya virus studies will involve developing and implementing an assay to define the viral mutation rate. The SARS-CoV-2 projects will involve testing viral variants in humanized mouse models in collaboration with the UC Davis Mouse Biology Program as well as studies to evaluate candidate COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics in mouse and hamster models. The Fellow will also be encouraged to develop related independent projects. The position includes work in biosafety level (BSL)-2 and BSL-3 laboratories. The Fellow should be comfortable working in team environment. The successful Fellow will conduct experiments, analyze data, and prepare manuscripts. The Fellow should be able to perform independent
research with minimal supervision. Most of the Fellow’s effort will be in person given the necessity of virus work in contained settings. Computer-based work can be conducted off campus, if desired, although an office or desk in the laboratory will be provided.
