I am looking for post-doctoral fellow to work on a project investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms of sex differences and the effect of puberty on the immune response in the murine model of multiple sclerosis.
The candidate should have a PhD in immunology or related field, experience working with murine models, and strong expertise in flow cytometry. The individual should be highly-motivated, creative, and capable of working independently. He/she should be willing to provide mentorship to graduate or undergraduate students. The candidate will be expected to drive several projects in parallel, analyze data, and write manuscripts and work closely with others in the laboratory working on human immunology projects having a parallel focus.
Our lab is located at the Keenan Research Centre for Biomedical Science (St. Michael's hospital) in the heart of the discovery district in downtown Toronto. All relevant equipment for research is available onsite. Trainees will also have access as needed to equipment or facilities at neighbouring hospital research institutes and can participate in the weekly Immunology lecture series and other events hosted by the Department of Immunology at the University of Toronto.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, CV and names/contact details of two references to Shannon Dunn at Shannon.Dunn@unityhealth.to.
