The Immune Engineering Lab at the University of Kansas ( is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to apply high-throughput immune repertoire analysis techniques for rapid antibody discovery and to investigate the immune response to viral vaccines and infections.

The KU School of Pharmacy is consistently ranked as one of the top five pharmacy programs in the nation by NIH funding. The DeKosky laboratory interacts with the Higuchi Biosciences Center, the Kansas Vaccine Institute, and the Center for Computational Biology, which are leading research centers at KU in the biological sciences. The DeKosky lab also supports collaborations with NIH, Columbia-NYC, The University of Minnesota, and other institutions. KU is located in Lawrence, Kansas, about 40 miles from Kansas City.
