Postdoctoral Fellow Position: Signalling Mechanisms in Human Diseases. Dalhousie University

Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Paola Marignani ( in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Dalhousie University. The Marignani Lab studies signalling mechanisms associated with energy metabolism, epigenetics, and autophagy in human diseases. Work will be conducted in CRISPR-Cas9 and Cre-Lox mouse models of cancer, and in human primary tumours.
The ideal candidate will have a proven track-record with: mouse husbandry, protein expression technologies from human cell lines, primary cells and human tissue samples, gene manipulation, qPCR, protein-protein interaction analysis, cell population enrichment strategies, and microscopy. Experience with RNA-, DNA-, scRNA-seq, or immunobiology will also be considered.
A cover letter should include a description of relevant research training to date, a list of publications, a copy of undergraduate and graduate transcripts (or equivalent) and indicate the applicant’s long-term research interests and career goals. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to apply for independent funding while in the lab.
