Postdoctoral fellow in skeletal muscle stem cell biology
 
Our area of research:
Our laboratory (http://www.ladydavis.ca/en/vahabsoleimani) studies how skeletal muscle stem cells function to repair and regenerate muscle tissue. Specifically, we are interested in molecular mechanisms by which lineage-specific chromatin is established and how perturbation in chromatin structure and function contribute to muscle diseases. We apply NGS technologies such as ChIP- and RNA-Seq, cell lineage tracing and basic biochemistry, molecular and computational biology to study how muscle stem cells repair tissue and maintain their pool.

Qualifications:
PhD in basic biomedical sciences or related disciplines from a recognized university, strong background in chromatin biology is required, background in computational biology is an asset.

Postdoctoral fellow - Proteomics Centre of the Lady Davis Institute
 
Job Description:
The proteomics center of the Lady Davis Institute is looking for a motivated and talented post-doctoral fellow for “(phospho)proteogenomics of colorectal cancer”.
The project is in close collaboration with leading cancer researchers in the Jewish General Hospital.

Job Roles:
The post-doctoral fellow will develop and apply proteomics and phosphoproteomics methods to analyze colorectal cancer biopsies using high resolution mass spectrometry, including both discovery and targeted approaches. The generated data will be combined with complementary genome sequencing data to identify improved markers for patient stratification and mechanisms of resistance.

Postdoctoral fellow - Proteomics Centre of the Lady Davis Institute 
 
Job Description:

The proteomics center of the Lady Davis Institute is looking for a motivated and talented post-doctoral fellow to study “Innovative cleavable linker strategy for mass spectrometry-based elucidation of drug binding sites” as part of a FQRNT funded collaboration between the Verhelst lab in Leuven/Belgium and the JGH Proteomics Centre in Montreal. We will use newly developed chemical cross-linkers to covalently bind drugs to their targets and off-targets. After enrichment, those on/off targets and their respective binding sites will be identified with modern mass spectrometry methods.

Job Roles:
The post-doctoral fellow will optimize the MS conditions for the identification of drug targets and their binding sites, and will conduct quantitative (phospo)proteomics studies using cancer drugs currently used in the clinic and analyze the data.
