New job post: Postdoctoral associate positions at Boston University
Postdoctoral associate positions at Boston University
Contact: Joseph Zaia - email@example.com
Laboratory of Joseph Zaia
Department of Biochemistry
Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry
We are recruiting post-doctoral associates to work on NIH supported projects in the Zaia group at Boston University. Our group uses mass spectrometry methods for studying disease processes in tissue using combined proteomics, glycomics and glycoproteomics. We have two openings for postdoctoral scientists:
1. Combined proteomics and glycomics from histological tissue. Aberrant glycosaminoglycan expression is involved in many neurological diseases. The work will involve combined glycomics and proteomics to determine the roles of proteoglycan expression in neurological diseases.
2. Mass spectrometry of glycosaminoglycans. This position involves:
a. Activated electron dissociation (ExD) methods for sequencing of glycosaminoglycan saccharides. This will involve use of the 12T Bruker Solarix in the laboratory and interaction with bioinformaticists to develop a sequencing platform.
b. Advanced LC-MS methods for intact glycosaminoglycans, including heparins, low molecular weight heparins and chondroitin sulfates.
Competitive salary and benefits are available commensurate with experience. Fluent spoken English, a strong publication track record, and a cooperative attitude are a must for this position. The Zaia group is part of the Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry at Boston University. This highly collaborative group provides excellent opportunities for career development of a young Ph.D. scientist.
Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, or a related biomedical field with strong experience with mass spectrometry. Candidates should send curriculum vitae, cover letter, and contact information for three letters of reference to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Post-doctoral scientists will be compensated according to the NIH rate: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-15-048.html
