A position is available in the WNPRC Genetics Services Unit overseen by Dr. David O’Connor at the AIDS Vaccine Research Laboratory. Genetics Services is a research service unit that specializes in fee-for-service high-throughput genotyping of immune loci in nonhuman primates (NHP). Understanding NHP genetics is essential for unlocking the secrets of AIDS immunity, organ transplant tolerance, and susceptibility to infectious disease. The applicant will provide technical assistance to help design experiments and develop improved technologies for understanding the relationship between genetics and disease, while working with other laboratories that provide NHP samples for advanced analyses available only through Genetics Services.
