Postdoctoral Position available in the Phillip (tiME)n lab
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral researcher interested in the intersection of bioengineering and translational ageing research. Projects are based on defining the multiscale dependence of ageing in the context of health and disease. These include developing cell-based biomarkers of ageing and developing a framework to define how ageing rates change and manifest across length scales (i.e. molecular, cellular, clinical and populations). The long term goal of these studies are to develop pathways for modifiable aging trajectories.
The successful candidate will take advantage of this NIH T32 funded position, a competitive salary and a rich academic environment, with opportunities to learn from and collaborate with leading researchers in engineering, medicine, public health and more.
Trainees will also be able to take advantage of career development and educational programs available within the institute for NanoBiotechnology (INBT) as well as within the Departments of Biomedical Engineering (JHU BME) and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (JHU ChemBE).
Interested candidates with an advanced degree in areas related to bioengineering, biomedical sciences, biomedical data science having interest in translational aging research are encouraged to apply. Please send your updated CV, cover letter and the contact information for three references to Dr. Jude Phillip at [email protected]. Inquiries about the position are also welcomed.

Postdoctoral opening in biomimetic microfluidic platforms for hypertension
Immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work on the development and characterization of biomimetic tissue constructs for investigating vascular diseases. Expertise is required in one or all of the following: 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 (Prof. Gracias’s lab) and medicine (Prof. Lewis Romer), and publish their results in high impact journals. We are seeking highly motivated and well published researchers with good oral and written communication skills. Please email resumes to Prof. David Gracias ([email protected]).
Postdoctoral Positions Available in Wirtz Lab
Multiple postdoctoral positions are available to study the role of the synergistic mechanism of Interleukin 6 and 8 in cell density-dependent mechanisms that govern metastasis in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.
Proliferation and migration are two key drivers of metastasis that can be mechanistically coupled in the tumor microenvironment through local tumor cell density via the synergistic signaling of Interleukin 6 and 8. Inhibition of this mechanism in pre-clinical mouse models has demonstrated a decrease in metastatic burden to the lungs, liver, and lymph nodes. We are now further delineating this signaling mechanism to develop better therapeutics against cancer metastasis.

Competitive Salary and excellent work environment are offered. Self-motivated individuals with an advanced degree in any area of biomedical sciences and specially those who are skilled in immunobiology or bioinformatics are encouraged to apply. Please send CV and names of three references to:
