A postdoctoral research fellow position is available in the laboratory of Gregor Andelfinger at the CHU Sainte Justine Research Center, Montréal, Québec, Canada. Our work focuses on the genetic origins of cardiovascular diseases in the young and includes both genomics and functional approaches. In this project, the successful candidate will apply genomic and molecular biology approaches to develop disease models. Postdoctoral fellows will have a unique opportunity to do interdisciplinary research at all interfaces of translational medicine and publish their results in high impact journals.
The candidate will work in collaboration with all lab members and is expected to independently perform human and mouse genetic studies, as well as in vitro molecular analyses. Experience with a wide variety of techniques (developmental studies, histology, confocal microscopy, cell culture assays, RNAseq) is desired. Experience with genome editing techniques (CRISPR) and/or and bioinformatics analysis is an asset.
The successful candidate must have a recent Ph.D. degree in life sciences, molecular cell biology, or a related field. We are seeking highly motivated and well published researchers with excellent oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills.
Montreal is a vibrant bilingual city with a high quality of life. With a greater metropolitan area of 3.5 M, Montreal offers all scientific and cultural benefits of a large North American agglomeration with a European flair and beautiful surroundings.
