              Campus/College Information:

              Founded in 1856, University of Maryland, College Park is the state’s flagship institution. Our 1,250-acre College Park campus is just minutes away from Washington, D.C., and the nexus of the nation’s legislative, executive, and judicial centers of power. This unique proximity to business and technology leaders, federal departments and agencies, and a myriad of research entities, embassies, think tanks, cultural centers, and non-profit organizations is simply unparalleled. Synergistic opportunities for our faculty and students abound and are virtually limitless in the nation’s capital and surrounding areas. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff that will enhance our stature of preeminence in our three missions of teaching, scholarship, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and in the world.

              Position Summary/Purpose of Position:

              Applications are invited for a Faculty Specialist at the University of Maryland Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR) in Rockville, MD.

              The Faculty Specialist will be involved in research projects involving engineering of vaccine candidates and characterization of immune responses in support of a multi-disciplinary, multi-PI, NIH-funded structure-based vaccine design research program. The overall goal is to design optimal recombinant antigens to principal neutralizing determinants and characterize the immunological responses to those determinants. The Faculty Specialist will be expected to independently design and apply molecular biology and biochemical tools for the expression, characterization, and testing of responses particularly in the study antibody-antigen and receptor interactions with a specific focus on enveloped-based viruses. The successful candidate will be able to generate purified recombinant vaccine antigens and recombinant antibodies using mammalian expression systems. The candidate will also perform rigorous biochemical analyses of the antigens including examining their interactions with both cellular receptors and antibodies to key antigenic sites. The antigens will be used for in vivo studies, requiring the individual to analyze serum responses using established biochemical and cell-based assay techniques. The individual will also facilitate general operation of the laboratory.
              IBBR (www.ibbr.umd.edu) is a premier research institute focused on the structural and quantitative biological characterization of complex protein structure/function relationships and bio-molecular engineering and testing of novel products or platforms targeting prevention or treatment of conditions of human disease and intervention. IBBR operates state-of-the-art facilities located in the heart of the biotechnology corridor in Rockville, Maryland. The Institute is a joint research enterprise between the University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology and has an outstanding group of scientists and engineers with long-standing track records in basic and translational research.

              Minimum Qualifications:

              B.S. degree in molecular biology, biochemistry, or related field with 5-10 years of experience. The successful candidate must be highly motivated with expertise in the fields of biochemistry or molecular biology with a focus on structure-function relationships. In particular, the individual should have experience in molecular biology and biochemistry as used in the cloning, expression, purification, and characterization of recombinant proteins, quantitative binding techniques, and cell-based assay techniques.


              M.S. degree with 3-5 years of experience. A particular research focus and interest in vaccine and immunotherapeutic development is preferred. Experience using mammalian expression systems, Akta chromatography systems and label-free quantitative binding techniques (e.g. SPR, Octet) is preferred. Experience in protein production in an industry setting in also preferred.
