Postdoctoral associate position

Laboratory of Joe Zaia

Department of Biochemistry- Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry

We are recruiting a post-doctoral associate 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 an opening for a postdoctoral scientist to work on combined proteomics and glycomics from brain tissue.   The work will involve combined glycomics and proteomics to determine the roles of glycoprotein and proteoglycan expression in neurological diseases.

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 and/or proteomics experience is strongly recommended.

Candidates should send curriculum vitae, cover letter, and contact information for three letters of reference to Joe Zaia  (
