Post Date: 4/2/2020
Apply
Applications are now being accepted for research fellowship positions in the Hematology Research Program at Boston University Medical Center. The Research Training Program is designed to train postdoctoral PhDs and MD in hematology related research.

Successful candidates have the opportunity to work on promising projects focusing on the development of novel agents that can be employed to induce fetal hemoglobin gene expression as potential therapeutics for sickle cell anemia and beta thalassemia. The successful candidate will have access to several groups of Principal Investigators whose work is focused on developmental stage-specific gene silencing or reprogramming in hematopoietic stem cells and progenitors using iPSC models and a variety of erythroid cell lines and primary erythroid precursors, and who are interested in the genetic basis of fetal hemoglobin gene expression and its pharmacologic modulation.

Opportunities to mentor undergraduate, graduate and junior postdoctoral researchers will be offered. Career guidance and individualized mentoring plans are available to the applicant.
