Postdoctoral positions are available in the Department of Anesthesiology/Critical Care Medicine at The Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, in the laboratory of Dr. Jian Wang.

We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic, independent, and career-oriented research fellows with a PhD in neuroscience or immunology. Strong cellular and molecular biology and neuroscience and/or immunology training is required. Candidates must have first author publications and proven research ability in the following areas: immune cell function (microglia, macrophages, and mast cells), neuroinflammation, white matter injury, neurobehavioral testing, and small animal surgery. Other lab experience is helpful but not required: brain slice cultures, exosomes, red blood cells, bone marrow transplantation, electron microscope, optogenetics, and brain imaging (MRI, PET, or bioluminescence). A successful postdoc candidate should have a strong work ethic, possess interdisciplinary lab skills, have excellent organizational and communication skills and critical thinking abilities, be able to submit individual training grants and supervise junior lab members, and perform team-oriented as well as independent work. We offer multifaceted scientific projects, a place in a committed team, and strong scientific collaborations. We have an outstanding record in helping trainees obtain postdoctoral fellowship and helping junior faculty obtain career development award. We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package. NIH funding for the position with a minimum of a 2-year appointment is currently available.

Lab interests: 1) immune cell function (glia, macrophages, mast cells, etc.) and neurovascular inflammation; 2) cell death pathways; 3) white matter injury; and 4) post-stroke depression and emotional regulation. The research projects of our team focus on these targets with the primary goals of discovering new therapeutic strategies for intracerebral hemorrhage or traumatic brain injury and elucidating the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms.

Recent publications: Nat Rev Neurol 2017; 13: 420–433. Neurobiol Dis 2017; 103: 54–69. JCI Insight 2017; 2: e90777.

Individuals who are interested should send a detailed CV, a brief statement of research plan, interests, and skills, and the names of three references to Dr. Jian Wang at jwang79@jhmi.edu.
