 Do you want a research fellowship on an Island with a free scenic
ferryboat ride twice a day and work in a BL-3 lab researching exotic
diseases of animals?
Would you like to live in a resort community surrounded by the Bay or
Long Island Sound with great boating, swimming, and fishing? Do you enjoy
living in the country in a New England community with easy access to New
York City or Boston.  
We have an immediate opening  for  a 1-2 year fellowship  at the
Agricultural Research Service, USDA  Foreign Animal Disease Research Unit
located at  the  Plum Island Animal Disease Center on the East end of
Long Island, NY .  The Plum Island Animal Disease Center Research
Participation Program (administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for
Science and Education - ORISE) aims to provide educational and research
opportunities in pathogenesis of  foreign animal diseases such as
foot-and-mouth disease and classical swine fever.   This  fellowship is
open to people with at least a bachelors degree and experience in
histotechnology. It will provide great opportunities to get a wide
variety of experience, including histotech work, cryosectioning,
immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization, confocal microscopy, and
animal necropsy assistance for sample collection in a research
atmosphere. You would work in a small lab (one other histotech) with  two
veterinary pathologists and other microbiologists , molecular biologists
and research fellows. The research includes viral pathogenesis and
immunopathology  of foreign animal diseases. Stipends (ranging from
$35,000 to $45,000 a year) will be determined according to education ands
experience in the field.
In order to reach the Plum Island facility,  you  will travel daily from
Orient Point, NY, or Old Saybrook, CT, aboard a government-provided
marine vessel.   
 For more information, you can contact me or read about it at the
fellowship website and get an application.
