Postdoc in Epigenetics and Connectomics of Opioid Abuse

Johns Hopkins University
Baltimore, Maryland
Closing date
Dec 7, 2022

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to join the Kebschull Lab at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, USA. This NIH funded position is for a postdoc to develop new tools that integrate single-cell connectomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics to interrogate the long-term circuit changes caused by drugs of abuse. In the lab, we develop and apply cutting-edge molecular and neuroanatomical tools to study how brain circuits change over the course of an animal’s lifetime in disease and over the course of evolution. We specialize on barcode sequencing-based high-throughput connectomics (BRICseq, MAPseq) and in situ sequencing. Recent relevant papers include Kebschull et al. 2020 Science, Huang et al. 2020 Cell, Han et al. 2018 Nature, and Kebschull et al. 2016 Neuron.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) in neuroscience, molecular biology, biomedical engineering or a related field. The ideal candidate should have molecular biology and some bioinformatics skills, and be passionate about tool development and the addiction field. We particularly encourage applications from any underrepresented or minority group.

Our lab is located on the School of Medicine Campus of Johns Hopkins University, surrounded by world-class neuroscience and biomedical engineering labs. We are committed to establishing a first-class, stimulating, diverse, and equitable environment in our new lab to allow you to flourish, achieve your goals, and further your career.

Qualified applicants should send a letter describing their current and future research interests, their CV, and names and contact details for three references to More information is available on
