The Developmental Cardiology and Stem Cell Biology lab at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is looking for a talented post-doc student to join the lab of Dr. Emmanouil Tampakakis. Our group uses cutting edge methods for single-cell transcriptomics, flow cytometry, gene editing, and single cardiomyocyte mechanics. Our research is innovative and aims to: 1) investigate the molecular pathways of cardiomyocyte maturation, 2) develop and optimize new methods for heart regeneration, 3) study the role of cardiac innervation during heart development, and 4) use stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes to model inherited heart diseases.
A strong funding history, close mentorship, recently renovated laboratory, and strong core facilities provide an outstanding research environment.
The candidate must be self-motivated, ambitious, hard-working, have a solid background in standard molecular and biological techniques, cell culture and ideally mouse models. Previous experience in stem cell and computational biology is preferred but not required. The position requires the ability to lead projects and work cooperatively with others, carry out and troubleshoot experiments.
Please email a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and names of three references to Emmanouil Tampakakis MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. email@example.com
