Mitacs Accelerate Postdoctoral FellowshipPosted by: Kerman Lab at University of Toronto Scarborough
Posted date: Mar-03-2018
We have a new funding opportunity from Mitacs Accelerate program for postdoctoral fellowship.
In collaboration with our industrial partner, we are seeking a dedicated and professional postdoc fellow to join our team for an exciting new research project on the potential beneficial effect of cannabinoids in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.
The candidate should have a strong background in:
1) Tissue culture protocols - culturing of neuronal cell types a bonus
2) Cellular assays - basic microscopy experience
3) Biochemistry techniques - protein analysis and biochemical assays
4) Molecular biology - basic molecular biology and cloning techniques
We welcome fresh PhD graduate, junior postdoc or experienced postdoc fellow to apply.
You would gain valuable experience with exposure and training to various biochemical and electrochemical research techniques.
The research laboratory of Prof. Kerman has a strong background in research and development of a new generation of biosensors to accelerate the discovery of multi-target Alzheimer's disease therapeutics modulating amyloid aggregation and other biomolecular targets such as acetylcholinesterase. Our strength in biosensor analysis allows detection of biomolecular targets in response to therapeutics using miniaturized, cost-effective and rapid techniques. We are strong supporter of translational research utilizing the strength of biological chemistry and biochemistry.
If you are interested in joining a creative and energetic research team, we welcome you to send your resume and cover letter to us, or to Prof. Kerman directly for application details.
Have a wonderful day!
