  • GENERAL SUMMARY
    A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Janet Crane, Department of Pediatrics/Division of Endocrinology and Department of Orthopedic Surgery/Center for Musculoskeletal Research (CMR). Dr. Crane’s focus is on skeletal fragility/bone health in children, particularly on glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis in children. Dr. Crane has found the high-dose glucocorticoids decrease in skeletal angiogenesis precedes the decrease in bone volume and is focusing studies now on understanding the cellular mechanism and translational implications. Dr. Crane was recently awarded an R01 through the NIH/NAIMS to study the role of glucocorticoid-suppression of preosteoclast PDGF-BB in skeletal angiogenesis. The project uses novel mouse models and biomechanical and histological analyses. A prior funded project complements the basic science study with a clinical registry and biorepository of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy on chronic steroids with endocrine complications that can be utilized for further translational studies. The ultimate goal is identify biomarkers for the diagnosis of osteoporosis before sustaining a fracture and for monitoring efficacy of treatment response in children on chronic steroids.

    EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
    The applicants must have a PhD, MD or MD/PhD degree. We seek a highly motivated scientist who can work independently with strong written and oral English communication skills. The project involves the use of genetically engineered mice, molecular biology techniques, including endocrinology, bone and vascular biology. Prior experience in musculoskeletal, vascular, or endocrine-related fields is valued.

    OFFER
    Full-time position with a young, dynamic team for 2-4 years. Opportunity to collaborate with additional projects and faculty within the CMR. Excellent training and mentorship to help launch an independent research career.

  • Description
    We have a Postdoctoral or Staff Scientist (pending experience) position available immediately at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to explore the intersection of virology and immunology to characterize the HIV latent viral reservoir. The successful candidate will work primarily with a dynamic group of students, post-docs and investigators from the Johns Hopkins University and the National Institutes of Health.  The work will initially include cutting-edge techniques such as next-generation sequencing, laser capture microdissection, multiplex immunofluorescence, and single-cell genomic analysis. The comprehensive analysis of the latent viral reservoir on the cellular level will also incorporate analyses of large datasets.  The studies will advance our understanding of how latency and clonal expansion are maintained and more importantly will define therapeutic targets in an effort to cure HIV infection. Over the past 18 months, the laboratory has also supported four COVID-19 clinical trials and investigated the antibody and cell-mediated responses to SARS-CoV-2 infection.  Our larger laboratory group works extensively with researchers from Uganda and South Africa, and future projects in the group may involve these sites as well. 

    Previous molecular biology experience is required, and experience in any of these techniques, as well as experience working with large complex datasets, would be a plus. After the initial projects the possibilities for future research in this project are numerous. The position is extremely well-funded, and ideal for a candidate interested in pursuing a K-training grant. Therefore, the position could be a good starting point for an independent career for a new PhD graduate, or even someone with a couple years of post-doc experience. Individuals with multiple years of post-doc experience with successful publication experience may be considered for a Staff Scientist position. 

    Requirements 
    The applicant should have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, demonstrated successful research experience and publication record, and works well in a team. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills are essential.
