The Perissi Lab at Boston University School of Medicine is seeking a highly motivated, enthusiastic scientist to join our energetic and collegial team. The lab is broadly interested in the interplay between epigenetics and metabolism (for more info see lab website at http://blogs.bu.edu/vperissi/). We currently have one NIH-funded postdoctoral position available to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating a newly identified mitochondria-nuclear communication pathway (Cardamone et al., Molecular Cell 2018).
Required skills include a PhD in Biology or related Life Science, significant experience in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry, a record of peer-reviewed publications, and excellent writing and communication skills. Experience in mitochondria biology and metabolism would be considered a plus.
If interested please send CV, contact information for 3 letters of reference and a short statement describing experience, goals and reasons for the interest in this position to Dr. Perissi at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Department of Biochemistry, in collaboration with the Genome Science Institute at Boston University School of Medicine is undertaking a major expansion in the areas of Genetics and Genomics. We invite applications at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels. Several positions are available, and these will be highly competitive with regard to start-up funds, newly renovated space, and salary.
We seek creative scientists using cutting-edge technologies and experimental systems to address important problems in Genetics and Genomics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, chromatin structure and function, epigenetics/epigenomics, single-cell genomics, metabolic regulation, control of gene expression, DNA damage and repair, stem cells and development, and cancer genomics. The position requires a Ph.D. or M.D., and relevant postdoctoral experience.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and list of publications to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7645.
Letters of recommendation should be provided only if requested by the Search Committee. Applications will be reviewed beginning September 15, 2016, and continuing until the positions are filled. Please direct email queries to email@example.com.
Boston University is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer.
Positions are available for extremely motivated Postdocs and Graduate Students willing to address fundamental questions of embryonic reprograming using zebrafish as a model system. Previous experience in molecular biology will be a plus, but even more important is their motivation to learn and adapt to scientific challenges and become positive members of the lab. To apply please send to Dr. Cifuentes a cover letter stating research interests, CV, and contact for three references.

Postdoctoral positions are available to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease, prion diseases, and other neurodegenerative disorders due to protein aggregation. The laboratory is interested in understanding the cellular pathways that mediate the neurotoxicity of Aβ, prions, and other misfolded protein aggregates, and developing therapeutic approaches to block these pathways. A number of exciting projects are underway, spanning basic biology to drug discovery. The candidate will join a vibrant, multi-disciplinary group that is a leader in research on neurodegenerative disorders.
We are seeking scientists with a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree, or the equivalent, and experience in one or more of the following areas: biochemistry, cell biology, chemical biology, protein structure, and mouse transgenic models.
Please send a curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and the names of three references to:

Graduate Student Positions
Interested students should apply to the PiBS program at Boston University (BU-PiBS). Once accepted to the program please email Dr. Varelas(xvarelas) to arrange a meeting to discuss projects and opportunities.
Postdoctoral positions are available in the Varelas Lab to work on funded, multi-year, cell signaling projects. The overall goal of the Lab is to understand the roles and regulation of the Hippo pathway in a variety of areas, including stem cell biology, development, and diseases such as cancer. The successful candidate(s) will have opportunities to work with a vibrant group to learn and utilize a number of experimental approaches, including molecular biology and cell biology methods, and various animal models.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree, or the equivalent, and preferably have expertise in developmental mouse models. Qualified candidates must also be able to work independently, demonstrate excellent communication skills and work well within a group. To apply send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references to Dr. Varelas by email (xvarelas). Please note that only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
We are looking for candidates with a recent Ph.D. and a strong background in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry applied to Signal Transduction research, as demonstrated by a publication record. Prior knowledge of GPCR/G protein signal transduction is preferred but not essential.
Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to academic research and to be able to work in a fast paced and demanding environment. We are looking for exceptionally motivated and creative individuals capable of advanced conceptual thinking. Candidates must be able to drive projects from beginning till the end independently as well as to participate in team-based efforts. Our laboratory is highly committed to the career development of trainees.
Experience in several of the topics/ techniques listed below is expected:
- Cellular and Molecular Biology (Cell lines, primary cultures, BRET, microscopy, etc)
- Protein biochemistry (purification, pulldowns, immunoprecipitation, etc)
- Synthetic Biology (advanced cloning, protein design)
- Knock-out mouse colony breeding and animal handling
Interested candidates should send a CV, cover letter and contact information for 3 references.
