Our laboratory is interested in the molecular mechanisms controlling organ fibrosis. We are interested in extracellular matrix and signal transduction pathways that control progenitor cell differentiation as they relate to adipose tissue remodeling and metabolic disease. We are looking for postdoctoral candidates with a recent Ph.D. and experience in cell biology and biochemistry, as demonstrated by a strong publication record. Prior experience with mouse models of metabolic disease is preferred but not required. We are looking for motivated and creative individuals with a commitment to academic research who can work independently as well as on collaborative projects. Outstanding organizational and communication skills are also required. Boston University School of Medicine offers excellent training opportunities and programs for postdoctoral researchers.

Interested candidates should send a CV with the contact information for 3 references and a short statement describing their qualifications for this position to:
