Job Description

Faculty Positions in Genetics, Genomics, and Cell Biology
Boston University




The Department of Biochemistry at Boston University School of Medicine (, in collaboration with the Genome Science Institute, is undertaking a major expansion in the areas of genetics and genomics, including the application of genetic/genomic techniques to key problems in cell biology. We invite applications at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels. Several positions are available, and these will be highly competitive with regard to start-up funds, space, and salary.

We are interested in creative scientists working in a broad range of research areas, including, but are not limited to, chromatin structure and function, epigenetics, RNA biology, single-cell genomics, metabolic regulation, control of gene expression, DNA damage and repair, stem cells/development, and cancer genomics. We welcome applications from individuals utilizing genetically tractable model organisms, novel computational/bioinformatic approaches, and functional genomic methods (e.g., CRISPR/Cas screening) to address significant cell biological problems. The position requires a Ph.D. and/or M.D., and relevant postdoctoral experience.

Over the past several years, the Department of Biochemistry has enjoyed a major transformation in its personnel and infrastructure, including hiring of eight new faculty members at all levels, renovation of 35,000 square feet of research space, and establishment of a new Center for Network Systems Biology focused on proteomics and protein interaction networks. These changes have dramatically expanded the scope of our research efforts beyond those of a traditional biochemistry department, to include “big data” approaches (genomics, proteomics), studies of non-coding RNAs, and use of new model organisms (zebrafish, C. elegans, Xenopus, Drosophila). The department has long-standing strengths in the areas of metabolism, obesity, and diabetes, and virtually every faculty member does work with important translational applications. The department now encompasses six thematic research concentrations: Development, Cell Biology, Genomics, Neuroscience, Metabolism, and Proteomics/Glycomics.

Job Requirements

The position requires a Ph.D. and/or M.D., and relevant postdoctoral experience.
