The Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering is now accepting applications to our new BME Distinguished Fellows program. This post-doctoral program is an accelerated career development pathway for talented and creative junior scientists who have demonstrated strong commitment to promoting diversity and inclusive excellence and who will contribute to the collaborative, innovative, and inclusive spirit of Hopkins BME. The aim of the BME Distinguished Fellows program is to support and develop the next generation of innovative interdisciplinary scientists.
Candidates for the BME Distinguished Fellows program will come from a broad range of disciplines ranging from engineering, physics, and mathematics to the life sciences and computational biology. Candidates should complete their PhD degrees no more than one year prior to their anticipated start date. Women and candidates from backgrounds that are typically under-represented in sciences and engineering are strongly encouraged to apply.
Successful candidates will build on their previous expertise in unique and interesting ways, bridge existing research groups within the BME department, or open up new areas of research. BME Distinguished Fellows are encouraged to identify primary and secondary mentors with whom they are interested in working to facilitate collaborations and interdisciplinary research projects.
The BME Distinguished Fellows program is as a pathway to independent research. Mechanisms to support the growth of BME Distinguished Fellows include, but are not limited to, the following:
Fellows will be provided space and resources by their primary mentor(s), as well as the financial resources and support needed to promote their development as independent researchers.
Fellows will be encouraged to apply for external funding to further establish their independence.
Fellows will benefit from an expanded mentorship committee that will facilitate progress, provide guidance on lab management and future goals, support career development, and aid in building the Fellow's professional network.
BME Distinguished Fellows will be appointed for an initial period of three years, with the option to apply for a two-year extension. Upon completion of the program, Fellows will be eligible and encouraged to apply for an appointment to the rank of Assistant Professor.
Applications to this post-doctoral program should include cover letter, CV, and research statement (optional) and should be submitted to http://apply.interfolio.com/84549 . Review of applications will begin as they are received and will continue until the position is/positions are filled. Applicants are expected to begin on or around July 1st, 2021.
