Gocke Lab: Translational Cancer Research

Date Posted:

Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center


Research Description: The laboratory of Dr. Christian B. Gocke at Johns Hopkins Sidney
Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center is recruiting a full-time post-doctoral fellow to perform
cutting edge cancer translational laboratory research in hematologic malignancies / multiple
myeloma / plasma cell neoplasia. Our laboratory interests include identifying novel drug
resistance pathways, drivers of stem cell functions during disease progression, and modulators
of the immune microenvironment.

Training Environment: The Gocke Laboratory is affiliated with the Division of Hematological
Malignancies, the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Johns Hopkins
University School of Medicine where you will be engaged in weekly laboratory meetings, journal
clubs, attend weekly cancer center seminars and career development workshops and many
other opportunities. You will work with experts in cancer genetics, stem cell biology, and cancer
microenvironment and learn novel techniques such as CRISPR-cas9 library screening, lead
compound drug development, and murine mouse modeling of cancer.

Requirements: Ideal candidates will have a doctorate degree and experience in cell biology or
immunology and basic laboratory molecular biology. Experience with murine models is
preferred, but not required. Looking for a minimum of 2 years of commitment to start in summer
of 2020. If interested, please email your CV to

Tampakakis Lab: Developmental Cardiology and Stem Cell Biology

Date Posted:

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology


A Developmental Cardiology and Stem Cell Biology lab at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is looking for talented post-doc students 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.

Strong funding history, close mentorship, collaborative science, 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.

Gilkes Lab: Role of Hypoxia in Metastasis

Date Posted:



Position Description:

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in the Gilkes Laboratory in the Department of Oncology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center in Baltimore, MD, USA.

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to study the role of hypoxia in the development of metastasis ( ). The laboratory utilizes 2D and 3D cell culture, a novel hypoxia fate-marking mouse model recently developed in the lab, high-resolution/high-content microscopy, biochemistry, molecular biology, and bioinformatics approaches to decipher the role of hypoxia in cancer spread to identify therapeutic strategies and potential prognostic markers. The successful candidate will be an active member of a dynamic, team-oriented, and expanding research group. The candidate will also participate in the development of novel animal models to investigate metastatic spread. He/she will receive multidisciplinary training and be an active participant in all lab projects and be a part of a vibrant post-doctoral fellow community in the cancer center.

A Ph.D. degree in cancer biology, cell biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering or a closely related field is required. Applicant must have first author publication in a reputable journal from their terminal degree. Proven ability to work independently as well as within a team.

 All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, disability, or other protected group status.

Applicants should submit a cover letter and a CV to:
