Recruiting Postdoctoral Associates

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biotechnology at UMass Chan Medical School 

Some of our available postdoctoral associate openings:
  • Recruiting a postdoctoral scientist to investigate how protein citrullination contributes to motor neuron degeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disease. The scientist will employ various investigative tools, including proteomics, enzymology, protein chemistry, molecular and chemical biology, and others, and work together with neuroscientists, to unveil the changes in protein citrullination and the role of these changes in ALS.  Click here to make your application  /
  • Recruiting for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. William Kobertz.  This position is for an applicant who will synthesize a reagent to attach histidine-tagged fluorescent metabolite sensors to the glycocalyx of mammalian cells and use cellular imaging to detect extracellular metabolite fluxes.  Applicants are expected to be able to synthesize and characterize organic compounds independently. More information about the lab can be found: .  Make your application here
  • We offer an opportunity at a cutting-edge research laboratory of Dr. Josué Flores Kim laboratory ( We are seeking an energetic and well-organized postdoctoral fellow for D to aid in studies of how bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae build their cell envelope to grow and divide. A key goal of the lab is to uncover mechanisms that will facilitate the discovery of next generation antibiotics targeting drug-resistant bacterial infections. We encourage applications from prospective and highly motivated postdoctoral fellows in the process of finishing their PhDs or with a Ph.D. degree awarded within the past 1-2 years; having a background in microbiology, bacterial genetics, molecular biology, immunology, biochemistry, or a related field; and excellent communication skills.
