Postdoctoral Fellow; Early Embryo Development

The Hospital For Sick Children
Toronto, Ontario
Application Deadline: March 1, 2017
 

The laboratory of Dr. Janet Rossant is currently seeking outstanding young scientists to join our research group as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. A postdoctoral project in our research group will involve utilizing various molecular and imaging tools to study early embryo development. Specifically we are looking for individuals interested in studies of polarity, patterning and/or morphogenesis of the developing embryo. These studies include but are not limited to; analyzing the role of biophysical interactions by manipulation of tensile forces in the embryo and isolation of blastomeres to study the dynamics of physical forces during morphogenesis.

Postdoctoral Fellow; Experimental Therapeutics

University Hospital Network
Toronto, Ontario
Application Deadline: Until filled
 
Dr. Sara Nunes Vasconcelos at the University Hospital Network is hiring a Postdoctoral Fellow to join her lab. More than 250 million people are chronically infected with Hepatitis B virus (HBV) with no effective cure. We are interested in understanding the immune response to HBV in chronically infected patients to develop better immunotherapies to treat chronic HBV. To realize this, we are starting a program focused on liver-specific immunity in humans. Using blood and biopsies from chronic HBV patients we are investigating the interaction between hepatocytes and immune cells during different stages of chronic HBV infection to define how these interactions relate to virus control and liver inflammation.

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow interested in investigating the intrahepatic immune response in chronic HBV infected patients to develop new strategies for immunotherapy. Flow cytometry analysis/sorting, RNA sequencing and epigenetic analysis will be the primary readouts for the cellular response to HBV in the liver.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

University Hospital Network
Toronto, Ontario
Application Deadline: Until filled
 
Our laboratory, based in the Department of Genetics and Development at the Krembil Research Institute and affiliated with the Spinal Program and the Collaborative Program in Neuroscience at the University of Toronto, is working on stem cell based regenerative therapeutic strategies for the treatment of acute and chronic forms of spinal cord injury. The lab is using cutting edge technology to generate and validate stem cell based therapy in models of spinal cord injury. The Fehlings research team is actively engaged in translational research and affords the opportunity to be involved with “bench to bedside” investigations.
