This position is a postdoctoral training opportunity paid a stipend, and the successful individual will be engaged in a temporary and a defined period (2-year) of mentored advanced training and professional development following completion of a doctoral degree program. Currently, BU is not able to offer traditional employee benefits to non-employee postdocs due to IRS regulations related to expanded fellowship income.
