Post Doctoral Training
We routinely have positions open in the laboratory for highly qualified scientists interested in brain tumor research, cancer genomics and/or new drug development. At present, all of our laboratory positions are filled, but please check back here in the future for updates.
Graduate Student Training
Excellent dissertation projected opportunities exist in our laboratory for brain cancer research. Students currently enrolled in the any of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Graduate programs are welcome to plan research rotations within our laboratory. Students in the MD/PhD program or graduate programs of Biochemistry, Cellular & Molecular Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Cellular & Molecular Medicine, Health Sciences Informatics, Human Genetics & Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, Pathobiology, Pharmacology & Molecular Sciences, Program in Molecular and Computational Biophysics or any of the programs are welcome to discuss the research opportunities in the laboratory.
Dr. Riggins has joint appointments in the Neurosurgery, Oncology and Genetic Medicine departments, and is currently applying for membership to graduate training program(s).
Neurosurgery and Neurooncology laboratory research fellows
Our laboratory provides opportunities for clinical fellows seeking a research project in brain cancer laboratory research. Projects span from cancer gene discovery to drug testing and development. The Johns Hopkins Department of Neurosurgery provides a two-year research opportunity for residents and this laboratory provides one of many flexible environments for ground-breaking research in neurooncology.
Also at Johns Hopkins, in combination with the NIH, is an NIH funded training grant, Research Training in Neuro-Oncology, which provides a means for clinical fellows to gain new experiences in clinical care and laboratory research.
