The Wilson Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University is currently in search of talented postdoc candidates with a passion for science and a strong desire to make a positive impact on human health.  The Wilson Lab’s research focuses on the synthesis and pre-clinical validation of biomaterials-based immunomodulatory therapies that bias the adaptive immune response for the treatment of cancer, autoimmunity, and infectious diseases. Our work includes the synthesis and characterization of novel biomaterials via small-molecule organic and polymer chemistry. Our postdocs will have the opportunity to test biomaterial functionality in vitro and various animal models, including those for cancer and autoimmunity.  The individual will assist in the training of Jr lab members, thus excellent interpersonal skills are required. Postdocs will be expected to demonstrate independence in experimental design and execution and work effectively with others in a collaborative setting.

The successful candidate will be highly motivated and have a proven track record of conducting independent research. Candidates with a track record of publishing research that demonstrates their ability to perform multi-step organic small-molecule or polymer synthesis will be given special consideration. Priority will also be given to candidates with a background in cell culture and/or animal work. A PhD degree in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, materials science, or like field is a prerequisite.

We strongly encourage applications from underrepresented or minority groups. We pride ourselves in establishing a creative, stimulating, and diverse environment wherein researchers put their ideas into action and obtain expertise in technology development and chemistry approaches.

Our postdocs perform cross-cutting research at the interface of materials development and immunology with collaborators at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Applicants are required to submit 1) curriculum vitae, 2) cover letter that highlights the candidates experience in organic synthesis, 3) a list of three references.  For more information on the Wilson Lab at JHU and to apply go to immunoengineeringlab.com.
