The project will examine adaptive immune responses in COVID19 vaccine recipients. The work will involve handling human blood and tissue samples so it requires experimental diligence and following biosafety rules rigorously. Work hours need to be flexible and will depend on the sample schedule.
The individual hired for this project will work on upcoming human immunology related projects with Dr. Rama Akondy (Associate professor, Department of Biology). The position involves performing experimental (wet lab) work but several lab-setup tasks will be associated with the role. The researcher will have the opportunity to learn advanced immunology, work in an inclusive environment and receive training in academic skills like preparing grants and manuscripts.
