Fully funded, mentored, one-year research fellowships- part of a formal institutional Training Grant (NIH T32)
Positions are available for work focused in two seperate areas/divisions.
1) Imaging or Theranostic technology development or molecular brain imaging (Dr. Pomper: Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging)
The Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at Johns Hopkins is a leader in the development and delivery of theranostic agents for cancer and in radiopharmaceutical development – for cancer and for brain PET. Programs extend from basic science (biology, chemistry, physics and biomedical engineering) to clinical studies.
2) Bariatric Embolization and Medical device development (Dr. Weiss: Interventional Radiology and Biomedical Engineering).
Johns Hopkins Interventional Radiology has a robust research program. Our program currently runs the most extensive Bariatric Embolization research program in the world, with over 15 years of experience and publication in this area. We have an active clinical research program in Bariatric Embolization and are currently running multiple clinical trials in this area. Concurrently we are running a translational research program investigating the cellular, physiologic, hormonal and functional effects of this procedure. Fellows would have the opportunity to work in both area. Fellows are expected to submit abstracts and present data at national meetings as well as to publish manuscripts during their year. Johns Hopkins Interventional Radiology also has an established relationship with the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering, and is actively involved in the development of new interventional devices as well in the development of new applications of existing devices. Research fellows in IR will be encouraged to attend morning conferences and to shadow in clinical cases as time permits.
Please note - accepted candidates will still need to undergo NIH approval.
Applicants must have either an MD or DO (US diploma not required). Applicants must be accepted into an ACGME approved residency or fellowship (prefer but not limited to radiology) but not yet on faculty. Can be from outside USA or Canada.
A background either in clinical research or in basic/translational research is preferred. For the Molecular Imaging fellowship nuclear medicine and/or molecular imaging experience would also be preferred, but is optional. For the Interventional Radiology fellowship a statistical background and/or an working knowledge of IR techniques is preferred but optional.
Applicants should be comfortable with writing, data assessment, clinical assessment and care.
Applicants must be: a citizen of the United States, or a non-citizen national, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence and possess an Alien Registration Receipt Card (1-151 or 1-551) or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident.
