A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University. Our laboratory is interested in understanding the roles of chromatin remodeling in regulation of neural regeneration in the central nervous system. In the study, we use a combination of advanced experimental approaches, such as mouse genetics (CRISPR/CAS9), next generation sequencing (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, etc.), advanced fluorescence microscopy (tissue clearing and 3D imaging), and several animal models of neural injury (optic nerve injury, spinal cord injury, and peripheral nerve injury).

We are seeking self-motivated candidates who have recently obtained his/her Ph.D. in biomedical fields with interests in regenerative neuroscience. Experience and background in epigenetic studies, imaging, visual system, or in vivo animal surgical skills are preferred but not required.

Interested applicants should email the following materials to Dr. Fengquan Zhou at fzhou4@jhmi.edu

  1. Curriculum vitae
  2. Contact information for 3 references
