Opportunities with MaHPIC

close up of lab equipment
The Malaria Host-Pathogen Interaction Center welcomes collaborations.  The Consortium studies malaria from many vantage points, with clinical studies and non-human primate model systems.  Our cutting-edge technologies include telemetry, high-content flow cytometry, epigenetics, transcriptomics, proteomics, lipidomics and metabolomics to deliver a dynamic, multi-angle view of host-parasite interactions and develop new strategies to improve human host resilience to infection. The consortium is a highly collaborative, fast-paced, and deliverable-oriented environment that provides excellent working conditions, compensation and career development opportunities for its team members, but also collaborations with established investigators, including skilled retirees.  Areas of focus include:
  • Analysis of high-throughput genomic data with the goal of investigating the host biological networks activated by the parasite and simultaneously assessing changes in the transcriptome of the parasite. 
  • Design, implementation, and analysis of experiments focusing on host immunology and physiology in response to infection by malaria parasites. The goal of this work is to identify aspects that enable the host to be more or less resilient to disease outcomes due to the malaria parasite.
  • Analysis of multiple big data sets and performing integration to seek omics correlates of outcome and clinical symptoms (severity, etc.), and mechanistic connections between different data types.
Members possess strong scientific and/or computational skills, an affinity for hypothesis development and testing in a collaborative research environment, and a drive to learn new skills.  An advanced degree in a biological science, computational biology, bioinformatics, or a related computer science discipline is required – Master’s degree at minimum for staff positions and doctoral degree for postdoctoral positions and collaborators. 
There are no paid positions open at this time.
However, inquiries regarding opportunities are welcome (see contacts page).
