We are looking for one or more postdoctoral scholars to work on physics of cell motility using theory and computation with Prof. Brian Camley at Johns Hopkins University. In particular, we have dedicated funding to support a postdoc for a collaboration on cell motility and cell-cell interactions on nanofibers between the Camley group at JHU and the Nain group at Virginia Tech . (See our recent collaborative paper and related earlier work). Questions could include understanding how cells adhere to fibers, how cell geometry alters Rho GTPase dynamics, and developing data-driven models to predict outcomes of cell-cell collisions. However, we are flexible on projects and funding, and candidates who have additional ideas for projects in line with the group’s expertise are encouraged to mention them in their letter!
This position will be for one year, renewable for up to three years. To apply, please send a brief email explaining why you’re interested, a CV, and contact information for references to bcamley at jhu dot edu. Start date is flexible!
Who would do well in this job? We use tools from soft matter and statistical physics, so Physics PhDs are a natural fit but many other PhDs (Math, Engineering, etc.) may be appropriate. Fluency in computational methods is required; prior experience in biological systems is nice but not necessary.
Applications received before 10/31 will be given full consideration!
