Subject: Paid Gap Year Opportunity For Recent Graduates Description: Join a cutting-edge research team investigating airborne transmission and prevention of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza virus infections. We are looking for multiple new team members for clinical/public health, engineering, aerosol, communications/marketing, and data analytical roles. The Public Health Aerobiology, Virology and Exhaled Biomarker Laboratory (PHAB Lab) at the University of Maryland College Park School of Public Health seeks inquisitive, well-organized, detail-oriented, and energetic people to join a multidisciplinary research team of clinicians, epidemiologists, engineers, aerosol, and data scientists. We are studying the role of inhalation exposure in the transmission of respiratory viral infections in randomized controlled trials and the efficacy of ventilation, filtration, and germicidal UV to prevent transmission in real-world applications. Our research is funded by the NIH, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Flu Lab, and Balvi Foundation. Depending on background and experience, duties will include recruiting participants, collecting clinical samples from participants, operating complex sampling equipment for collection of ambient and exhaled breath aerosols, assisting with instrument development and testing, mapping germicidal UV irradiance, assisting with computational modeling, viral analysis including dPCR, culture, and sequencing. Extensive training will be provided. We are looking for research assistants who can commit to working full time and graduate assistants with appropriate background and skills. Recent graduates looking to gain research experience before matriculation into medical or graduate school are encouraged to apply.
