Deadline: July 24, 2017

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Division of Intramural Research (DIR), Laboratory of Clinical Infectious Diseases (LCID) is offering a staff clinician position in mycology clinical and translational research.  LCID conducts clinical and basic studies of human infectious and immunologic diseases, with a focus on comprehensive understanding and management of patients and their diseases. LCID focuses on pathogenesis, pathophysiology, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases.  
An enthusiastic and highly-motivated clinician scientist will work within a collaborative group to utilize the most current immunologic and statistical genetic methods to understand the human response to fungal pathogens, specifically, the AIDS-related pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans. These translational approaches will be used to design, develop, and test novel therapeutics and immune biologics to control and treat difficult infections. Interactions with several US and overseas collaborative clinical sites will be required to further apply findings to a wide range of HIV and non-HIV infected patients. 
The successful applicant must have an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. He or she will be responsible for clinical care and protocol design related to patient-centered research analyzing experimental results, preparing manuscripts, and helping with the supervision of students and residents. No previous experience in pathogenic fungi is required, although board eligibility in infectious disease is preferred. Our laboratory provides strong support for the development of independent projects leading to a productive career for post-fellowship candidates.
