Postdoctoral Position:  Call for Applicants for a highly motivated individual interested in Transcriptional Regulation.

Laboratory of Professor Martha L. Bulyk, Division of Genetics at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, part of the Harvard Medical School research community located at the Longwood Medical Area in Boston, MA.

This project will employ a combination of in vitro, in vivo, and computational approaches to investigate transcription factor-DNA interactions relevant in human breast cancer, with a focus on understanding the roles of different transcript isoforms of transcription factors in gene regulation. The work will employ a range of techniques including but not limited to: protein expression and purification; mammalian cell culture; genome editing; RNAi; ChIP-Seq; RNA-Seq; SELEX-Seq; protein binding microarrays (PBMs); DNA and protein sequence analysis; and computational analysis of high-throughput sequencing data. This position offers the opportunity to work in a highly collaborative environment and the opportunity to participate as part of the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Systems Biology Consortium.


Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. (or anticipate to graduate soon) in a biological field with strong quantitative skills and prior programming experience; some bioinformatics programming will be required in this research project. Solid command of spoken and written English is required.


We offer competitive salaries and benefits, and a highly interactive academic environment. Applicants should email a cover letter and CV, and arrange for 3 confidential letters of references to be emailed to: Prof. Martha L.

Biogen Postdoc Program:  Call for Applicants

Immediate and 2018 opening in the Computational and Systems Biology Division.

The prospective applicant will get a chance to work in cutting edge computational neurology to understand drivers of neuro diseases.  

Postdocs are not on a normal employee cycle and are instead work on non-pipeline, basic science-focused projects with a goal of publishing high impact manuscripts.  The programs give Biogen a connection to the scientific community and to young talented researchers who want to experience a pharma setting before going into academia.

The Department of Biochemistry & Cellular and Molecular Biology (BCMB) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT) is soliciting applications for a tenure‐track position at the rank of an Assistant or Associate Professor to begin on August 1, 2018. BCMB ( has 40 active faculty with core strengths in experimental and computational structural biochemistry & biophysics, plant/microbial biology, and developmental genetics. We seek applicants who use experimental structural or biophysical approaches to study complex cellular, sub‐cellular, or molecular systems.

Assistant professors will be required to develop an innovative and extramurally funded research program that complements existing areas of research within the BCMB Department. Associate Professors will be expected to have established and well-funded research programs. UT is located near the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and candidates interested in developing collaborative research programs with ORNL are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will benefit greatly from available computational resources, the on-campus National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) and the UT-ORNL Joint Institutes for Computational Sciences, Biological Sciences, Advanced Materials, and Neutron Sciences.  The Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee is seeking a candidate who has the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University.
