Postdoctoral opportunities in Health Sciences

Childrens Hospital Boston / Harvard Medical School is offering postdoc position in health sciences. All students regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply. Applicants should apply before February 09, 2015.

A postdoctoral position is open in the Lee laboratory, located at the Proteomics Center and Department of Urology at Children 's Hospital Boston / Harvard Medical School. The Lee lab works closely in conjunction with the Hanno Steen lab and the Proteomics Center at Children's Hospital Boston. In addition it is part of the Urologic Diseases Research Center / NIH George M. O’Brien Urology Center at Children's Hospital Boston / Harvard Medical School.

Our lab is involved with developing and applying new glycomics and glycoproteomics methodologies for the 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.

Application Requirements
Projects for this position will specifically focus on interrogating specific urinary proteins and glycoproteins identified as potential biomarkers of renal damage and urinary tract infection susceptibility and determining their biologic significance and relationship to renal injury. Candidates will be responsible for various aspects of proteomics, glycoproteomics, and biochemical experiments from sample preparation to data analysis.

These projects will require experience in molecular biology, and / or mass spectrometry and glycoprotein modifications. An additional interest in glycobiology or glycoproteomics is preferred, but not necessary. Working knowledge of LC- ESI- MS/MS and HPLC operation is preferred. Experience with analysis of large data sets and bioinformatic tools are preferred.

How to apply?
Interested candidates should send their CV, letters of reference, and a one page summary of research background and goals to: Richard S. Lee, MD.
