Postdoc Opportunity in Bone Mechanobiology
We are seeking outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral position in bone mechanobiology at Boston University. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in biology, engineering, biochemistry, or a related technical field. Experience in one or more of the following areas is highly desirable: cell culture, surgical procedures in small animals, histology, RNAseq, immunohistochemistry. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to work closely with project collaborators in the College of Engineering, School of Medicine, and School of Dental Medicine at BU, as well as with industry collaborators. Interested individuals should contact Prof. Elise Morgan, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two post-doctoral associate positions available at Bais Lab related to 1) cartilage regeneration and osteoarthritis 2) cancer basic or translational research
Location: Boston University, Bais lab.
Excellent opportunities for candidates to learn and apply innovative thinking in target focused research with cutting-edge tools including signaling pathways to translational animal models. We are interested in candidates having related expertise in one of the 2 areas.
Project 1: Cartilage regeneration, osteoarthritis, tissue regeneration: The goal of this project is to identify cartilage regeneration or protective agents, and biologics for preclinical and clinical application.
Project 2: The goal of the study in NIH funded grant is to evaluate 1) the role of Lysine specific demethylase 1 (LSD1/KDM1A) in squamous cell carcinoma of oral cancer and other cancer types, 2) chemotherapy and immunotherapy combination for future therapeutic applications. The project is in continuation to published studies PMID: 35105672, DOI: 10.1158/1541-7786.MCR-21-0310 and PMID: 29088714, DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.19637
PhD, DVM or MD in cancer biology, epigenetics, immunology, molecular biology, cell biology, Biotechnology and relevant fields
Project 1 and 2:
- RT-qPCR, Western blot, signaling pathways analysis, lentivirus, Adeno or AAV mediated transduction, CRISPR/Cas9, cell culture, primary cells handling, tissue regeneration, stem cells and immunophenotyping
- Knowledge of proteomics, genomics and single-cell RNAseq analysis are useful but not required.
- Multi-color flow cytometry and histology expertise are preferred
- In vivo mouse handling, tissue dissection, genotyping, histology, and histopathology, Xenograft, orthotopic, and immuno-oncology mouse models
- Good communication skills, enthusiastic and positive team player.
- Strong publication record from previous studies.
Please send a resume and letters to email@example.com. Available immediately.

The Program Directors of the Center for Skeletal Research would like your help in thinking about new directions, new areas of emphasis that the Center can consider moving into. Our Center is now about eight years old. While we have introduced a number of new initiatives in the last few years, there is always the danger that we might not be looking at current bone biology with the freshest perspectives. When the Center goes to NIH hoping to renew the grant (or in NIH terminology, apply again for a new grant), we are likely to have some changes in leadership and emphasis, and we want to make changes in the most thoughtful way possible. For this reason we would like to establish a New Directions Committee, with the mission of surveying the field and the capabilities in the Boston area to then come up with suggestions for modifying current cores or establishing completely new cores with new goals. If you would be interested in joining this effort, please let us know by e-mailing CSRmail@partners.org, and we’ll organize next steps.
Professor in Skeletal Metabolism and Disorders Ref. ZAP-2021-102
The Department of Chronic Diseases and Metabolism – CHROMETA – is recruiting an outstanding basic scientist to advance the field of Skeletal Metabolism and Disorders in close collaboration with clinical researchers.
This research profile will be embedded in the division Clin&Exp Endocrinology which consists of several labs with excellent track records in fundamental and clinical research in the field of endocrinology, metabolic diseases, nutrition and bone disorders.
To excel in the rapidly evolving field of skeletal disorders, it will be essential to combine insights from endocrinology and skeletal metabolism and integrate them with influences from muscle, adipose tissue, gut, kidney, immune system etc. This integrative approach requires substantial expertise in skeletal homeostasis and disorders, strengthened with innovative concepts. The availability of Core facilities (rodent imaging, genomics, metabolomics,..) as well as the proximity of an academic hospital with more than 700 000 out-patients visits each year provide excellent opportunities for skeletal research.
