The Antimicrobial Biologics Laboratory in the A*STAR Infectious Diseases Labs is looking for a highly self-motivated individual to join us as a Scientist. Our mission is to develop the next generation of vaccines and biologics-based therapeutics to defend against emerging infectious disease threats to Singapore and to the world.
We are looking in particular for individuals skilled in development of biological assay tools, including virus and pseudovirus genetic manipulation, molecular biology including advanced PCR techniques, and cell reporter assays.
Our lab is focused on novel methods of antibody discovery against difficult targets including complex pathogens and membrane-bound receptors. We utilize such microfluidic technologies and function-based bioassays for discovery of functional monoclonal antibodies and apply reverse vaccinology to identify critical vaccine epitopes. Solutions developed will be applied to the fields of infectious disease and antimicrobial resistance.
We are looking to fill this position by Dec 2023.
