Position Summary

We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated scientist or engineer to investigate the role of drug carriers in modulating the immune response in the development of vaccines and autoimmune therapies.

The Ainslie lab is located at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC in the Eshelman School of Pharmacy in the newly finished Marsico Hall. The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is #1 in the country. This position will be part of a NIH funded project. Our lab develops translational therapies to deliver therapeutics and modulate the immune system. Information on the Ainslie lab can be found at

As a post doc in the Ainslie lab you would be working closely with an interdisciplinary team and expected to be active in every level of the research from polymer development to work with different animal models. This position is a temporary position for 1-3 years. We are not seeking individuals interested in a long-term research position.

This is an interdisciplinary laboratory where a successful candidate must be willing to not only perform biological assays but formulate liposomes and polymeric particles as well as characterize them analytically, using standard Ainslie Lab methods. It is an outstanding opportunity for a highly motivated post doc to learn new skills in drug formulations.
