We are seeking recent Ph.D. graduates to join a postdoctoral
fellowship program developing computational biology approaches for
lung diseases. The fellowship program is jointly advised by faculty
at the Institute for
Computational Medicine (ICM)
at Johns Hopkins University
and by researchers at
Computational Lab for In Silico
Molecular Biology. This unique opportunity will allow postdoctoral
fellows to gain industry and academic research experience working
on pharmaceutical R&D projects.
Successful candidates will have an interest in improving
computational modeling of biological systems. We are using
multiscale mechanistic modeling to study the normal function and
pathophysiology of the lung at scales ranging from organ level down
to cellular and molecular level. With mentorship from Johns Hopkins
and United Therapeutics, projects for postdoctoral fellows will
involve applying a wide range of techniques to formulate
computational models based on experimental data. These models will
be used to understand the key drivers that govern system behavior
and to explore potential therapeutic approaches.
The fellowship provides an annual salary of $60,000 with full
healthcare benefits. Postdoctoral scientists will be employees of
Johns Hopkins University.
Applicants are not required to be United States citizens, but due
to pandemic restrictions they must reside in the U.S. to be
considered for the position.

The following additional provisions may apply depending on which
campus you will work. Your recruiter will advise
During the Influenza ("the flu") season, as a condition of
employment, The Johns Hopkins Institutions require all employees
who provide ongoing services to patients or work in patient care or
clinical care areas to have an annual influenza vaccination or
possess an approved medical or religious exception. Failure to meet
this requirement may result in termination of employment.
The pre-employment physical for positions in clinical areas,
laboratories, working with research subjects, or involving
community contact requires documentation of immune status against
Rubella (German measles), Rubeola (Measles), Mumps, Varicella
(chickenpox), Hepatitis B and documentation of having received the
Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccination. This may include
documentation of having two (2) MMR vaccines; two (2) Varicella
vaccines; or antibody status to these diseases from laboratory
testing. Blood tests for immunities to these diseases are
ordinarily included in the pre-employment physical exam except for
those employees who provide results of blood tests or immunization
documentation from their own health care providers. Any
vaccinations required for these diseases will be given at no cost
in our Occupational Health office.
