Employment Opportunities

Postdoctoral Associate Position:

The Boston University School of Medicine seeks recent Ph.D. graduates with a metabolic or immunologic research background to join the Pharmacology and Whitaker Cardiovascular Institute as Post-doctoral Research Associates.

The interests of the research group are focused on understanding the metabolic regulation of hematopoiesis, systemic inflammation related to obesity, fatty liver diseases, vascular damage, and insulin resistance.

We are looking for a motivated scientist and team player to join the group.  The candidates are expected to conduct an NIH-funded research project related to obesity-induced fatty liver diseases and vascular damage.

Experience with immunology, transcriptional regulation, and metabolic signaling would be preferred. 

Boston is a beautiful city and has a much enriched academic environment. You will be joining a dynamic academic group.

For consideration, please send your cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, and recommendations to qzhou@bu.edu.   



Postdoctoral Associate Position:

Job Description:
• Seeking a motivated postdoctoral research associate to join the NIH-funded research laboratory of Dr. Noyan Gokce, M.D. within the Section of Cardiology at the Boston University School of Medicine, and participate in clinical/translational projects elucidating mechanisms of vascular disease in human subjects with obesity and metabolic disease.

• The candidate will be expected to learn methods that examine microvascular function using ex vivo videomicroscopy organ chamber techniques and angiogenesis assays using live arterioles harvested from human adipose tissues. Mechanism of microvascular dysfunction related to obesity, metabolism, environmental toxins, and inflammation will be examined.

Required Skills:
• Doctoral Degree (M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent) with interest in vascular biology and obesity research.
