Job DescriptionA post-doctoral position is available to start immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Andrew Holland, located at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland. Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is a world-class institution that is consistently ranked amongst the top three medical research schools in the USA.
The Holland laboratory is studying the molecular mechanisms that control accurate chromosome distribution and the role that mitotic errors play in human health and disease. Our work utilizes a combination of chemical biology, biochemistry, cell biology and genetically engineered mice to study pathways involved in mitosis and their effect on cell and organism physiology. This position is available as early as December 2019.
For more details of our recent publications and research interests please visit our website at www.hollandlab.com.
The successful applicant must have, or be in the process of completing, a PhD. The ideal candidate will have experience in mouse models, cell biology or biochemistry. We also welcome those with backgrounds in engineering, chemistry, and physics who are interested in applying their expertise to biological systems. All candidates must be highly motivated and have a strong record of independent research
Applications should be sent to email@example.com and should include a letter detailing the candidate’s motivation for this position, a full curriculum vitae including a list of publications and the contact details of three individuals who will provide letters of recommendation.
