*** The account for Biochemistry, Boston University School of Medicine has expired and new applications are no longer being accepted. ***

A funded postdoctoral position is available for immediate incorporation in the Cifuentes laboratory at Boston University School of Medicine for a highly talented and motivated candidate willing to address fundamental questions of RNA regulation in viruses and vertebrate systems.

The available projects focus on the study of post-transcriptional RNA regulators such as small non-coding regulatroy RNAs, RNA-binding proteins, and epitranscriptomic modifications with the goal to integrate these mechanisms into a single post-transcriptional regulatory framework. To address this goal, the lab combines high-throughput genetic, genomic, and proteomic approaches applied to two independent but technically interconnected areas: vertebrate development and viral replication, using zebrafish and filoviruses as primary model systems.

We are located in a renovated lab space at Boston University School of Medicine in the highly collaborative Department of Biochemistry, with close access to scientific core facilities and immersed in the lively city of Boston, MA.

Candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree and at least a first author publication. Strong experience in molecular biology is required and knowledge of computational 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. The position is funded for at least three years, contingent on performance. Additional information can be found at

To apply please send a cover letter stating research interests and accomplishments, CV, and contact information for three references trough AcademicJObsOnline. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
