Postdoc & Early Career

The Center for Multiscale & Translational Mechanobiology (CMTM), based in the College of Engineering at Boston University, currently has one full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellow position open with a start date of summer 2021. Postdoctoral fellow positions are open to individuals who have received a doctoral degree or equivalent. Candidates are expected to have a proven publication record and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

The CMTM postdoctoral fellow will work on a collaborative project involving at least two faculty members of the Center, preferably across departments, colleges, and/or campuses. Our faculty and other researchers study mechanobiology and its potential for clinical translation in such areas as:

•Regenerative medicine


•Connective tissue diseases

•Precision medicine

•Musculoskeletal pain


•Global health

•Drug delivery

The CMTM has unique strengths in modeling and biotechnology, giving fellows the opportunity to further their expertise in mechanobiology across length scales spanning single molecules to whole organisms. Fellows will be mentored in developing their own research programs and funding applications. The term of the CMTM fellowship is one year; renewal for second year is possible upon review of the fellow’s activities.

Before applying, please identify and reach out to one (or more) of our Center faculty who you are interested as having as an advisor for your fellowship, the list can be found at our website. Candidates will not be considered without nomination from one of our faculty.
