UTMB’s One Health Team (https://www.utmb.edu/one-health/home) in Division of Infectious Diseases of the School of Medicine has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Associate to work in One Health Research.

Applicants should have doctoral degree in the life sciences, at least three years of experience in virology (cell culture, next generation sequencing, molecular assays, serology), and documented experience in scientific publication. The ideal candidate will also have a passion for global health research, molecular assay laboratory experience, a desire for mentoring students and international scholars, and considerable experience in scientific grant and report writing. Spanish language skills are a plus.

The candidate would work with faculty, clinicians, postdoctoral professionals, graduate and undergraduate students conducting research and training on human and animal viruses.

The position is based in Galveston, TX, and occasionally involves short-term travel to the Team’s network of partner sites. This position is very career enhancing. Our Postdocs often published multiple publications each year and we have helped a number of recent postdocs win faculty positions.
