We are currently accepting applications from motivated, creative, and well-organized individuals to join a multidisciplinary research training laboratory (http://uregina.ca/~babu200m/) as a Post-doctoral Fellow at the University of Regina, Research and Innovation Centre to study the molecular mechanisms underlying the interaction networks involved in human diseases. The successful candidate will join a productive team whose research is well recognized in the field of large-scale systems research.
Babu’s group has an opening for 3 immediate Post-doctoral Fellow positions, two in bioinformatics and one in neuroscience. Ideal bioinformatics candidates should hold a PhD degree in computational biology, with reliable experience in deep learning, pearl, Java and preferably other languages. They should also have an expertise in the R package and prior knowledge in analyzing large-scale data sets, such as single cell sequencing, proteomics, and genomics. The neuroscience fellow should hold a PhD degree, with proven skills in human genetics, biomedical science, biochemistry, molecular biology, and/or mammalian cell biology. We are particularly interested in candidates with sufficient background experience in generating CRISPR knockouts/ knockdowns, CRISPR genetic screening, mammalian cell culture, protein purifications, biochemical and functional characterization of human proteins underlying human diseases. Proficiency in molecular/cell biology, and prior experience in mammalian research or membrane biology is highly desirable.
The appointed individuals will have: a strong publication record, good verbal and written skills, and the ability to conduct independent research and work efficiently in a dynamic research environment. Only applicants who meet these requirements are requested to apply. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. The positions will remain opened until the suitable candidates are found.
Interested applicants should send a single PDF file containing a covering letter describing their research experience, interests, and goals, a CV, and the contact information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
