Fellow in infectious disease to analyze detailed longitudinal data to characterize development & maintenance of immunity to P. falciparum

We are seeking one postdoctoral research fellow in infectious diseases to study the development of immunity to malaria. The candidate will be primarily mentored by Drs. Isabel Rodríguez-Barraquer and Bryan Greenhouse and will be part of the Experimental and Population-based Pathogen Investigation Center (EPPIcenter) at UCSF.

The fellow will work within a multidisciplinary team analyzing detailed data from longitudinal cohorts in Uganda to characterize the development and maintenance of immunity to P. falciparum. This project involves collaborators at the Infectious Disease Research Center (IDRC) Uganda and Stanford University. Fellows will work directly with regional and in-country partners and have a role to develop capacity and support a wide array of publications using these data.
