The program for training postdoctoral fellows provides the opportunity to conduct leading research in a world-class environment. Each fellow is associated with the research program of a faculty member, enabling them to gain experience in a specific area of research.
Postdoctoral trainees are encouraged to attend lectures and seminars, as well as lead discussions in weekly journal clubs and departmental scientific events. Because of strong links and close proximity to the Schools of Medicine and Engineering, scientific events available to postdocs range from daily clinical grand rounds in various specialties to weekly seminars in highly theoretical areas of engineering.
Specific postdoctoral fellowship opportunities are listed below, but this list is non-comprehensive and does not include all available opportunities. Interested individuals are encouraged to explore research opportunities, and to contact related faculty about their interests and with questions about next steps.
The Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering is now accepting applications to our new BME Distinguished Fellows program. This post-doctoral program is an accelerated career development pathway for talented and creative junior scientists who have demonstrated strong commitment to promoting diversity and inclusive excellence and who will contribute to the collaborative, innovative, and inclusive spirit of Hopkins BME. The aim of the BME Distinguished Fellows program is to support and develop the next generation of innovative interdisciplinary scientists.
Candidates for the BME Distinguished Fellows program will come from a broad range of disciplines ranging from engineering, physics, and mathematics to the life sciences and computational biology. Candidates should complete their PhD degrees preferably no more than one year prior to their anticipated start date and preferably not be at JHU at present. Women and candidates from backgrounds that are typically under-represented in sciences and engineering are strongly encouraged to apply.
The BME Distinguished Fellow will build on previous expertise in unique and interesting ways, bridge existing research groups within the BME department, or open up new areas of research. The BME Distinguished Fellow is encouraged to identify primary and secondary mentors with whom they are interested in working to facilitate collaborations and interdisciplinary research projects.
The BME Distinguished Fellow position is a pathway to independent research. Mechanisms to support the growth of BME Distinguished Fellow include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Fellow will be provided space and resources by their primary mentor(s), as well as the financial resources and support needed to promote their development as independent researchers.
- Fellow will be encouraged to apply for external funding to further establish their independence.
- Fellow will benefit from an expanded mentorship committee that will facilitate progress, provide guidance on lab management and future goals, support career development, and aid in building the Fellow’s professional network.
BME Distinguished Fellow will be appointed for an initial period of three years, with the option to apply for a two-year extension. Upon completion of the program, the Fellow will be eligible and encouraged to apply for an appointment to the rank of Assistant Professor.
Applications to this post-doctoral position should include cover letter, CV, 2-3 reference letters and a research statement (optional) and be submitted to http://apply.interfolio.com/91912. Review of applications will begin as they are received and will continue until the position is filled.
