Postdoctoral position is available to join two NIH sponsored cutting-edge research projects conducted by an interdisciplinary research team situated in the Biomedical Engineering Department (BME) and the Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT) at the Johns Hopkins University. The first project focuses on developing novel point-of-care diagnostic platforms for detection of infectious pathogens and determination of antibiotic susceptibility. The second project focuses on the development of a magnetofluidics-based platform amenable to HIV viral load self-testing.  The fellow will be responsible for developing self-sustained microfluidic cartridges and instrument for PCR or digital PCR-based bacterial detection and antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST), and microdevices for plasma separation from finger-stick blood for HIV viral self-testing. 

We seek highly motivated, enthusiastic individuals who have a Ph.D. degree with less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience in the areas of bio-instrumentation, point-of-care diagnostics, or related fields. Experiences with developing PCR cartridges, reagent lyophilization and storage, membrane-based blood plasma separation, and 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:
