A postdoctoral position in regenerative biology is available. The effort will include the design and engineering of proteins and biomaterials to create the next-generation peripheral nerve repair scaffold. The Associate will serve as a project scientist and oversee a group of students and technicians in fast-paced and creative environment. Applicants should have experience leading efforts involving tissue culture; protein engineering to enhance affinity, stability, or expression; fabrication of bioactive scaffolds; and in vivo characterization of implants or scaffolds. This work will be carried out in close collaboration with Johns Hopkins University and may require occasional travel (1 week per quarter). This position is supported through a multi-year Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program grant in Nerve Regeneration.
A PhD, MS, or BS in Bioengineering, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, or related field with lab or industry experience in molecular biology; protein engineering, expression and purification; biomaterials; and cell biology is preferred. Clinicians with relevant research experience are also encouraged to apply.
