A research fellowship position is available in Dr. Hana Golding's laboratory, Chief of Lab of Retrovirus Research, CBER, FDA at the NIH Campus, Bethesda, Maryland.

The ongoing research performed involves study of influenza viruses, like the H5N1, H7N7 & 2009-H1N1 pandemic, and those viruses with pandemic potential (avian and swine influenza strains). We are presently addressing humoral immune responses following influenza infection and vaccination. Emphasis is on understanding the role of adjuvants and different vaccine modalities in eliciting broadly cross reactive protective antibodies. The advanced techniques developed in the lab includes whole genome gene-fragment phage display libraries (GFPDL) and high throughput Surface plasmon resonance (SPR). Respiratory Syncytia Virus (RSV) is another virus under investigation with similar molecular tools.

This position is a post-doctoral fellowship through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE).


Eligible candidates should have a MD or Ph.D., or equivalent. Experience with molecular biology, protein expression and purification is required. Candidates with research experience in Phage Display are preferred and encouraged to apply.


The lab is located on the main campus of the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, with access to its library, seminars, and many facilities.


Candidates will be offered a competitive salary depending on their experience.
