OPEN POSITIONS

Postdoctoral fellow

We are looking for a talented, hard-working, independent and highly motivated individual to join us as a postdoctoral fellow.

The candidate needs to be within one year of their PhD, and have a proven record of peer-reviewed research publications. Experience with molecular techniques and cell culture models is a requirement. Previous work with animal models is preferable.

The successful candidate will have an opportunity to study chromatin biology in the context of brain tumors. She/he will use patient-derived primary cultures and patient-derived xenografts to study molecular determinants of cancer stem cell properties. Single-cell RNA-seq, genomics and epigenomics techniques will be complemented by functional studies of gene function in vitro and in vivo.

Please note that this is a wet lab position, but the successful candidate will have an opportunity to implement computational pipelines that have been standardized in the lab if she/he is so inclined. Computational experience is NOT a requirement for this position.

We have a very competitive salary and benefit package. And the Rockies are less than an hour away, making Calgary a perfect place for the scientist that needs to be immersed in nature to think!

If you are interested in joining us, please email your CV and a cover letter to marco.gallo[at]ucalgary.ca
