The Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI) and the Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology & Immunogen Design (CHAVI-ID), provides national and international leadership in the fight against major infectious diseases, and is currently recruiting for a Faculty position in genomics and computational biology at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI) is an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental institute dedicated to the study of basic and translational science required to understand host-pathogen interactions that can be translated to vaccines or other countermeasures against human diseases. DHVI comprises a team of highly interactive investigators that have expertise in mucosal and systemic virology, molecular biology, microbiology and animal models.

The position will lead research in the areas of genetics and genomics of the immune system and the analysis of large immune receptor and other databases.
