A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Johns Hopkin University. Our lab focuses on (1) understanding cancer biology and how it impacts metastasis and tumor growth; (2) utilizing principles of mechanobiology and immunoncology to develop physiologically relevent, high-throughput 3D modes to study cancer (and immune) cell behavior and responsiveness to drugs; and (3) the development of machine-learning programs to analyze and characterize cell phenotype/morphology and tumor-stromal interactions.
To achieve our goals, w use a multidisciplinary approach combining biophysics, biochemistry, and engineering. Our lab executes many preclinical mouse models and experience in mouse work is preferred. The applicant will have the freedom to choose a research project at the interface of mechanobiology and immunoncology. Applicant will be expected to assist current graduate students in the lab with their immunoncology projects. The applicant must have a Ph.D degree and solid background in immunology.
Competitive salary and excellent work environment offered. Please send CV and names of three references to:
