Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Protein Chemistry at Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts
- Boston University, Laboratory of Molecular NeuroTherapeutics, Boston, MA
- Location: Boston, MA
- Job Number: 7058863
- Posting Date: Aug 5, 2019
- Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionWe are seeking for applications from qualified candidates with expertise in the protein chemistry and proteomics for the development of sensitive assay platform for the detection of neurologic disorders. This position will work in a highly collaborative environment, focusing on identification of candidate molecules from the proteomic profiling, machine learning and experimental validation using the novel platform.
The research will be based at the Laboratory of Molecular NeuroTherapeutics, Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, Boston University School of Medicine, and actively involve interactions with collaborators in other institutes in Boston area.
We have a history and cutting-edge expertise in Alzheimer’s disease field and exosomes for their pathogenic and therapeutic roles. The main focus of our lab is to identify target genes in cell type specific manner for the therapeutic intervention or prevention of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease and other tauopathies.
The ideal candidates will be expected to work independently in protein chemistry, molecular engineering and proteomics. They will keep records and data of all scientific experiments according to established procedures. They also will draft technical reports, manuscripts for scientific journals, and present work internally and externally as needed. They are also expected to occasionally supervise students, act as a source of information and advice to other members of the group on scientific protocols and experimental techniques.
Each applicant must possess an advanced degree (Ph.D.) in a relevant field. Candidates with experience in biochemistry, protein chemistry, molecular engineering and proteomics are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidates should be good team players with high scientific standards and communication skills, and have the ability to work in an interactive, fast-paced environment.
