Postdoctoral Fellow: Drs. Postovit (Queen's University, Canada), Larsson (Karolinska Institute, Sweden), and Topisirovic (LDI/McGill University, Canada)
Applications are solicited for a Postdoctoral fellow position focusing on a collaborative efforts initiated between the Postovit (Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada), Larsson (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden) and Topisirovic (McGill University, Montreal, Canada) labs that are focused on understanding the mechanisms that underpin plasticity of cancer cells and their ability to adapt to stressors emanating from their environment (e.g., hypoxia) and therapeutic insults (e.g., chemotherapeutics). More specifically, we are looking for a candidate who is interested in joining a team with broad and complementary expertise (e.g., systems biology, developmental, molecular, cellular biology and bioinformatics) whose major goal is to dissect the mechanisms that orchestrate epigenetic, translational and metabolic programs in context of
cancer cell plasticity using state-of-the-art cell line-based and in vivo models. To this end, the candidate will be exposed to a multidisciplinary training program comprising a variety of well-established molecular, cell biology and biochemical techniques as well as newly developed systems biology (epigenomics, translatomics, metabolomics) and associated bioinformatic approaches.
Three (3) Tenure-Track Positions
The Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences, Faculty of Health Sciences at Queen's University invites applications for three (3) Tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor. These coordinated hires are aimed at fostering research capacity in current and/or emerging areas of excellence in the Department, including neuroscience, cancer, and cardiovascular research. Accordingly, the research strengths of the preferred candidates need to broadly complement at least one of the existing fields of research priority within the faculty, which include: (i) Neuroscience, (ii) Cancer, (iii) Translational Medicine, and (iv) Data and Computational Sciences. The preferred candidates will have an excellent track records of discovery and innovative research and demonstrate a high potential to establish externally funded research programs. Evidence that the candidates will develop research programs with diversity and equity in mind will also be considered in this process. Preferred Start Date: July 1, 2021
