Postdoctoral Fellow - Johns Hopkins Medicine

Province: Baltimore, USA
Position: Postdoctoral Fellow
Deadline: June 30, 2024

Job Description / Duties

A postdoctoral position is available within the Neuroimmunology Division at Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine.
We are seeking a self-motivated, highly driven, and independent candidate to contribute to an exciting project exploring the regulatory effects of NOD-like receptors (NLRs) on the innate immune responses within the central nervous system. The project is focused on understanding the mechanisms of chronic inflammation and neurodegeneration using experimental models of multiple sclerosis. We use transgenic mice and primary cell culture to design our experiments. The project will involve collaborative work with the laboratory of Dr. Peter Calabresi, MD, among several other teams.

Qualifications / Required Skills

The candidate for this position should be a recently graduated Ph.D. (within a year) or in his/her final year of graduation.

We are looking for an exceptional candidate with relevant experience in biomedical research, who must have at least one first-authored research paper, be able to work independently, and excel in teamwork within a diverse multidisciplinary setting. Desired expertise includes proficiency in flow cytometry, immunoassays, cell and molecular biology, and working with mice. Preference will be given to a candidate with interests and prior experience in advanced microscopy and multi-omics technologies.

Additional Information

This research will be conducted at the Department of Neurology, Division of Neuroimmunology, one of the top MS Research centers in the United States. The institute provides state-of-the-art facilities, fostering an environment that encourages innovative research. Joining Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine offers an excellent opportunity to become part of a vibrant biomedical research community, providing trainees with outstanding prospects for career development.

We are committed to providing excellent support and opportunities for our candidates to apply for fellowship awards that enhance their professional growth and achievements.

Salary: NIH based salary

Employer Profile

Dr. Marjan Gharagozloo holds a PhD in immunology from the Université de Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, QC, Canada). She has been recognized with numerous accolades including a doctoral award from the MS Society of Canada, the Best PhD Thesis award from Université de Sherbrooke, and the Best Provincial Research award from the Dean of Graduate Studies in Quebec. Her Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Division of Neuroimmunology, Johns Hopkins Medicine, centered on pioneering therapeutic strategies to control neurodegeneration in progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). Dr. Gharagozloo’s research is dedicated to unraveling the molecular mechanisms underlying chronic inflammation and neurodegeneration in the central nervous system (CNS), as well as developing innovative treatments for neurodegenerative conditions like MS. She has received the prestigious Career Transition Award from the National MS Society to investigate the role of innate immune regulator NLRX1 in glia-mediated inflammation and neurodegeneration using experimental models of MS. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/profiles/details/marjan-gharagozloo
