Postdoctoral Fellowship in NanoTechnology for Cancer Medicine (NTCM)

offered through The Institute for NanoBioTechnology at Johns Hopkins University:

Postdoctoral fellows in the NTCM program will train across disciplines (including engineering biology and medicine) to lay the foundations for technologies that will enable an inside-view of cancer cell functions, as opposed to the limited “blackbox“ input-output techniques currently used.
They will learn to introduce new methods for molecular imaging, develop high-throughput diagnostic tools, and engineer novel drug/antibody/siRNA viral and non-viral delivery systems to treat human cancers.>>

NTCM fellows will view interactions between nanostructures and biological systems in physical, biological, and biomedical terms and will become adept at emerging concepts in biomolecular engineering, protein engineering, materials synthesis and surface modification.>>

In addition, NTCM fellows also will develop new ways to diagnose cancer and evaluate individual patient’s prognosis so that an optimal treatment regime can be developed. The patient’s genetic and epi-genetic markers and disease phenotype and therapeutics also will form the basis of optimized patient care.>>

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Physics of Cancer (PS-OC)

Administered via the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology, the PSOC fellowship is an educational program of the Engineering in Oncology Center.

Postdoc fellows will train across disciplines (including engineering, physics, and cancer biology) to lay the foundations for new paradigms in cancer research and technologies that will enable an inside-view of cancer cell functions. They will develop a new understanding of how physical forces and hypoxia regulate cancer metastasis and use new methods for probing forces and deformations in vivo, molecular imaging, develop high-throughput diagnostic tools, and engineer novel drug/antibody/siRNA viral to treat human cancers.>>

Research resources, training track, eligibility, and admissions criteria:


Appointments are offered for the following distinguished fellowships:

Distinguished Visiting Professorship in Physics of Cancer and Distinguished Visiting Postdoctoral Fellowship in Physics of Cancer

Faculty at US and international research institutions are invited to apply for the EOC position of Visiting Professor and Visiting Postdoc in Physics of Cancer at Johns Hopkins University. The successful candidates will conduct interdisciplinary and collaborative research at the interface of physics, engineering, and cancer biology.>>. Faculty and fellows with expertise in engineering, physics, biophysics, cancer biology, and/or development biology will be considered.>>




Call for Proposals in Engineering and Physics of Cancer

The PS-OC Engineering in Oncology Center (EOC) at the Johns Hopkins University is soliciting proposals for pilot projects at the interface of engineering, physics, and cancer biology. Proposed projects should be innovative and must involve collaboration between two or more faculty with complementary expertise.>>.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
