Postdoctoral Position Department of Urology & Vascular Biology Program, Boston Children's Hospital
A joint postdoctoral position is open in the Department of Urology and the Vascular Biology Program at Boston Children's Hospital. The labs are actively interrogating the urinary proteome and tissues of the urinary tract to identify novel and clinically relevant markers of urologic disease, in particular renal damage, urinary tract infection, and bladder dysfunction. Projects for this position will specifically focus on proteins involved with reactive oxidative stress and the regulation of the extracellular matrix as biomarkers of renal damage and determining their biologic and clinical significance and relationship to renal injury. Candidates with expertise in biochemistry and / or molecular biology are preferred. Experience with bioinformatic tools and network biology are encouraged, but not required.
Interested candidates should send their CV, 3 letters of reference, and a one page summary of research background and goals to:
