Join the Johnston Lab 

We’re always looking for highly motivated, hard-working and enthusiastic people to come work with us. We especially encourage those from backgrounds poorly represented in STEM fields to apply to the lab.

Postdoctoral Research Training

Open postdoc positions in the lab will be advertised here. I also welcome inquiries from postdocs interested in applying for independent funding.

T90/R90 Institutional Postdoctoral Training award: Postdoctoral training is a major strength at Forsyth, and is funded, in part, by a T90/R90 Institutional Postdoctoral Training award, supported by NIDCR. The program is currently seeking highly committed, research career oriented postdoctoral applicants. Support is available for up to three years. Training is available for PhDs who desire to develop careers in oral health research that will take advantage of the most current scientific and collaborative strategies. Most trainees must be US citizens or hold a green card at the time of appointment. There are limited spaces for international positions. Details can be found here!

Boston Public High School Students

Each year we accept student applications for summer internships through the Forsyth Student Scholars Program (formally EOP program): https://www.forsyth.org/forsyth-student-scholars-program

Graduates of this program often go on to achieve great things: Chelsey Skeete, a Rittling/Johnston Lab alumna, is just one example.
