Post-Doctoral Associate Position
Laboratory of Joe Zaia
Location : Dept of Biochemistry, Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry, Boston University

Host Institute/Group

We are recruiting a post-doctoral associate to work on NIH supported projects in the Zaia group at Boston University.

The project will involve quantitative glycoproteomics of influenza and coronavirus proteins for studies on viral evolution. We have recently received funding for a Waters Cyclic IMS instrument that will be dedicated for this work. The postdoctoral scientist will conduct viral protein sample preparation and glycoproteomics LC-MS experiments. S/He will work within a collaborative team including biochemists, analytical chemists and bioinformaticians to develop and validate a statistically rigorous method for determining the changes to viral protein glycosylation that occur during viral evolution and that inform understanding of viral antigenicity and immunogenicity. The candidate should have Ph.D degree in biochemistry or a related field and a strong background in proteomics and/or glycoproteomics.

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.  Glycomics, proteomics and/or glycoproteomics experience is strongly recommended. 

Candidates should send curriculum vitae, cover letter, and contact information for three letters of reference to Joe Zaia  ([email protected]).
