2 postdoc positions on 'Paragone', Vaccines for Animal Parasites, UCD Dublin

This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate with good skills in immunology, bioinformatics and/or experience in vaccine design to join a high-profile H2020 Project with partners across Europe and South America.

The PARAGONE consortium is developing vaccines to protect livestock against parasitic diseases, and working to understand the mechanisms used by parasitic helminths to subvert host immune responses. Within the Consortium, the Mulcahy lab is working with colleagues in QUB and the University of Cordoba to advance vaccine – mediated protection of cattle and sheep against liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) infection.
