The Ranek Lab has a postdoctoral position available for a motivated and creative scientist with an interest in cardiac physiology and molecular biology. Our research is focused on elucidating the mechanistic underpinnings of cardiac proteinopathies and testing novel therapeutic strategies to treat cardiac disease. We are searching for candidates proficient in cell culture, mouse models, and human biopsies; thus spanning the translational spectrum from bench to bedside. We have funding from the NIH, AHA, private foundations, and pharmaceutical companies. Ideally this person is familiar with common molecular biology techniques such as western blotting, qPCR, immunohistochemistry, and proteomics. Knowledge of cardiac physiology and pathology is desired but not essential.
The candidate should have:
MD or Ph.D
Background in physiology, molecular biology, and biochemistry
Good publication record
Motivated, creative, and hard-working
Interested candidates are encouraged to submit their CV/NIH biosketch to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to inquire with any questions.
Johns Hopkins University remains committed to its founding principle, that education for all students should be grounded in exploration and discovery. Hopkins students are challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and entrepreneurship are all encouraged and nourished in this unique educational environment. After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
