Odyssey Systems has an exciting new opportunity for a Scientist II supporting the Department of Diarrheal Disease Research (DDR) Support Services at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. In support of the Surgeon General's responsibility to conduct research and development for the production of countermeasures against Diarrheal Disease pathogens that have the goal of improving readiness, combat effectiveness, and soldier health, the DDR was established in response to Military Infectious Disease Research Program (MIDRIP) and is in part carried out in the Bacterial Diseases Branch (BDB) at the WRAIR.

The BDB conducts the necessary studies from basic laboratory research to clinical trials in human volunteers. Within the BDB the specific mission is to develop countermeasures for Shigella and enterotoxigenic E. coli, both of which are significant causes of diarrheal disease in deployed American troops. As licensed countermeasures for shigellosis and enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) are not available it is necessary to conduct basic and applied research to develop new countermeasures. Sources of potential countermeasures are either intramural programs or extramural programs.

The contractor will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant.
