Postdoctoral positions are available to join a cutting-edge research project conducted by an interdisciplinary research team situated in the Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT) and School of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University. The project focuses on developing novel technologies for detection of infectious pathogens and determination of antibiotic susceptibility. The fellows will be responsible for developing self-sustained microfluidic cartridges and instrument for PCR or digital PCR-based bacterial detection and antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST), aiming at addressing the challenge of multi-drug resistance or “superbugs”.  For related work of our laboratories and the project of the positions, please see Analytical Chemistry 89: 11529-11536 (2017); Scientific Reports 8(1):9793 (2018); Science Advances 4: eaat6459 (2018).

We seek highly motivated, enthusiastic individuals who have a Ph.D. degree with less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience in the areas of microfluidics, bio-instrumentation, infectious diseases diagnostics, or related fields. Experiences with developing PCR cartridges, reagent storage, optical-thermal instrument are highly desired. Applications, including cover letter, curriculum vitae, contact information for three references, and a brief summary of past accomplishments should be sent by email to:
