CENTER FOR VACCINES AND IMMUNITY
The CENTER FOR VACCINES AND IMMUNIT Y at The Research Institute
at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University Department
of Pediatrics is seeking PhD, MD or MD/PhD candidates for a tenure-track
position at the Associate or Professor level. The successful candidate will
have an established, independent research program on virus infections of
the human respiratory tract. Research on innate or humoral immunity is
preferred to complement existing NIH-funded programs on the immunology
and virology of viral and polymicrobial respiratory tract infections. Research
on respiratory tract infections in the Center for Vaccines and Immunity is
supported by a close working relationship with the Infectious Diseases
Division of Nationwide Children’s Hospital including access to large patient
populations for translational studies and a special infectious diseases unit
dedicated to facilitating patient identiMcation and recruitment. The Center has
a facility that produces well differentiated human airway epithelial cultures.
The Institute has an AAALAC-accredited vivarium with expertise in animal
infection, particularly rodent and non-human primates and provides state-of-the-art core services for Oow cytometry, bioinformatics, morphology, viral
vector production, genomics, ES cell, transgenic and small animal imaging.
The OSU campus provides many other cores.
Start-up support and joint appointments within OSU graduate departments and
with clinical divisions at Nationwide Children’s Hospital are available. For
