Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA

Highly motivated postdoctoral candidates are invited to lead several new projects to address fundamental questions in Biology. Current directions in the lab include nucleic acid interactions with proteins and small molecules, and microRNA biology.

The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions provide a stimulating and collaborative environment for biomedical research. Our lab is affiliated with the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Department of Neuroscience of the School of Medicine. The Baltimore/Washington D.C. area also offers rich professional and living opportunities.

Candidates should have a doctoral degree and strong research background. Please send a statement of research experience and career goals, a copy of Curriculum Vitae, and contact information of at least one reference to Dr. Jiou Wang at [email protected].

Hubrecht Institute, Utrecht, Netherlands

We are looking for an experienced Postdoc who is highly motivated and works well both independently as in a team. The candidate should have a PhD degree and a strong interest in molecular biology, signal transduction and translational science. A proven publication track record in peer reviewed international journals is a must. The candidate should be experienced or be willing to work with rodents. Knowledge of cardiovascular or molecular biology and a clear affinity with physiology preferred. Written and oral fluency in English is essential.

Description of the project
Research in our lab is focussed on increasing our understanding in how changes in gene expression and microRNA function contribute to disease. Due to the limited regenerative capacity of the heart, we are especially interested in exploring opportunities to enhance the restoration of viable myocardium after ischemic injury. This project aim to investigate how microRNAs can contribute to the cardiac regenerative process after ischemic damage. We will aim to do so by using a combination of molecular biology techniques and in vivo models for cardiac damage.
