Joint Tenure-Track Faculty Position

The Brady Urological Institute of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department of the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering invites applications for a joint tenure-track faculty position in the field of Tissue Engineering. We seek a highly qualified scientist or engineer who can complement our dynamic, interdisciplinary team of faculty and researchers in both schools. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research seeks to understand interactions between cells and biomaterials. The successful candidate is expected to collaborate with other researchers in biomedical and engineering research across the campuses. A Ph.D. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering or a closely related field and significant research experience in a growth area within the biomedical sciences are required. The program is particularly interested in applicants with experience in translational studies of biomaterials. The successful candidate is expected to create innovative, high-quality research program and demonstrate strong commitment to excellence in education, teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels based on the needs of the School of Medicine and the Whiting School of Engineering and establish a strong, externally funded research program.

Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, reprints of recent papers, a statement of research interests and teaching plans, and the names of three references to: Chair, Search Committee, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, Maryland 221, 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218; or cynthia.fortner@jhu.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by January 5, 2015.

POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW POSITIONS: GRACIAS LAB

The lab has three openings for post-docs on collaborative projects. If interested please send your CV to dgracias@jhu.edu.

1) Untethered microsurgical devices: Immediate opening for a post-doc in the design and development of untethered microsurgical tools. The project involves the use of both conventional and unconventional microfabrication and nanofabrication to design, fabricate and characterize tiny tools for surgery and drug delivery. The project encompasses exciting new fields such as micro and nanomachines, self-folding, transient medical devices and robotics. It is a NIH funded collaborative project with close collaborations with surgical and GI endoscopy clinicians at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Expertise in microfabrication broadly of relevance to biology / medicine would be great.

2) Biomimetic tissue engineering: Immediate opening for a post-doctoral fellow to work on the fabrication development and characterization of biomimetic tissue constructs for investigating pediatric hypertension. Expertise is required in Bio-MEMS, hydrogel materials science, photo and soft-lithography, microfluidics, cell culture and tissue engineering.  Postdoctoral fellows will have a unique opportunity to do interdisciplinary research at the interface of engineering and medicine and publish their results in high impact journals. We are seeking highly motivated and well published researchers with good oral and written communication skills.
This is a joint project between our lab and Prof Lewis Romer in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

3) SFG spectroscopy: Immediate opening for a post-doctoral fellow to carry out IR+visible Sum Frequency Spectroscopy with relevance to catalytic nanoparticle interfaces of relevance to renewable energy. Project is a collaboration with Prof. Chao Wang in the department
