We investigate the finite temperature magnetothermoelectric response in the vicinity of a superfluid-Mott-insulator quantum phase transition. We focus on the particle-hole symmetric transitions of the Bose-Hubbard model, and combine Lorentz invariance arguments with quantum Boltzmann calculations. By means of an epsilon expansion, we find that a nonvanishing thermoelectric tensor and a finite thermal transport coefficient are supported in this quantum critical regime. We comment on the singular Nernst effect in this problem.
