Glunde Lab: Breast Cancer - Altered Metabolism and Tumor Microenvironment

Date Posted:
5/31/2017

Department of Radiology

MD

The Glunde lab is seeking two post-doctoral fellows who are driven, curious, independent-minded, and able to come up with unique solutions. The applicants should be experienced and/or interested in the fields of molecular imaging, tumor biology, and cancer research, and have some experience in one or several of the following techniques: molecular cancer biology techniques, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, mass spectrometric imaging, optical imaging applications, or multiphoton microscopy. The successful candidate will have a strong affinity for technological developments and information management. A thorough knowledge of the English language is required.

The post-doctoral fellows in the two open positions will investigate the altered metabolism and the tumor microenvironment in breast cancer, and develop novel approaches and imaging biomarkers to monitor the response of tumors to treatment. He/she will employ different molecular imaging techniques, including whole-body optical imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging, mass spectrometric imaging, different microscopic techniques, including two-photon and second harmonic generation microscopy, which will be combined with molecular cancer biology techniques. The work will be carried out in a multidisciplinary team of biochemists, molecular biologists, tumor biologists, chemists, physicists, image processing specialists, and biostatisticians. Progress will be monitored frequently using, among other instruments, written status reports by the successful candidates.

The positions are intended as full-time appointments, initially for one year, and renewable for up to five years, in the Radiology Department of the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Medicine (SOM) to be re-appointed yearly as funds allow and performance is successful. The earliest possible starting date would be July 1, 2017. JHU SOM assists any new foreign employees with housing and visa applications.

The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Medicine (SOM) (http://www.jhu.edu) is one of the best in the United States, and the largest recipient of National Institutes of Health research grants to medical schools. Basic and clinical research findings made at JHU SOM have improved the health of the community and the world by setting the standard of excellence in medical education, research, and clinical care.

The Glunde lab (http://glundelab.org) is located in the Radiology Department’s Division of Cancer Imaging Research (http://www.hopkinsradiology.org/DCIR/) and the In Vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging Center (ICMIC, http://icmic.rad.jhmi.edu/). Its mission is to identify and image key pathways specific to cancer cells and the tumor microenvironment. To achieve this goal, the JHU ICMIC combines state of the art molecular biology techniques, multimodal imaging techniques, such as optical, magnetic resonance, and nuclear imaging, and unique imaging probe design. The ICMIC Program and JHU SOM offer several high profile seminar series.

Please send applications to Kristine Glunde, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Radiology and Oncology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Radiology Department, Division of Cancer Imaging Research, kglunde@mri.jhu.edu.
