Job Description


The Translational Therapeutics Research Group (TTRG), a multi-disciplinary research team of engineers, cancer biologists, and clinician-scientists, is seeking highly-motivated early-career scientists interested in advanced post-doctoral research training in cancer nanomedicine (polymeric drug formulations, disease targeted nano-therapeutics, non-viral gene delivery) and neuro-engineering (blood brain barrier penetration, interstitial delivery and focused ultrasound applications). This laboratory-based training environment provides exposure to bench-to-bedside research, advanced pre-clinical models, cutting edge chemical and biomolecular formulation technologies, and novel ultrasound-based therapeutic delivery devices. Training opportunities will also include structured grant writing, journal review, and early commercialization projects.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated strong laboratory leadership and team-building skills, and have a track record of sound experimental design, scientific writing, high-impact publication, and independent learning. Prior experience in nanoparticle formulation, advanced microscopy, cancer biology techniques, and animal handling is desirable. This position is available beginning on February 1, 2022 and includes a competitive salary and yearly appointment renewal based on performance reviews.

Applicants are encouraged to send a (1) Curriculum Vitae, (2) a list of references, and (3) a short cover letter with a brief description of research experience, interests, and career goals to Anthony Kim, Ph.D. (Co-director of TTRG) at akim@som.umaryland.edu




Graduate Students:

We are committed to training the next generation of biomedical scientists and we occasionally have openings for students enrolled in one of the Graduate Program in Life Sciences (GPILS) PhD programs or the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) for the combined MD/PhD degree.
