Postdoctoral Position

Posted: 7/23/2014
Job Title: Postdoctoral Position
Employer: Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Schizophrenia Center, Department of Psychiatry
Location: Baltimore, MD

A postdoctoral position is available in the Schizophrenia Center at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to study the molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia. The Schizophrenia Center has a strong translational infrastructure, including abundant access to patient biospecimens with clinical data, and several sets of animal models. The laboratory combines molecular, biochemical, cell biology and mouse models to better understand the disease. Our initial approach will be to utilize candidate genes for schizophrenia, to determine pathways relevant to schizophrenia and as an entry point to understand more broadly the pathogenesis of schizophrenia. The ultimate goal is to identify pathways amenable to pharmacological intervention.


The ideal candidate has concluded a PhD/MD (or equivalent) training and shown clear commitment towards research in molecular biology, cell biology and biochemistry, supported by meaningful publications and presentations at expert meetings. The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary team, but most closely with a faculty member in the Schizophrenia Center.
