Postdoctoral Fellowship in Tuberculosis Immunology
South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative, University of Cape Town
The South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative (www.satvi.uct.ac.za) performs cutting edge clinical immunology research in TB pathogenesis, correlates of risk of TB and vaccine development. We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in human immunology to conduct research aimed at identifying lung immune signatures of resistance to natural M.tb infection in a multi-cohort study. The postdoctoral fellow will be based in Cape Town, but will have the opportunity to regularly interact with international partners.
The successful candidate will assist with the design, development, performance and analysis of mass and flow cytometry-based assays in human cells collected by brocho-alveolar lavage.
