A Postdoctoral Fellowship is available immediately for a biologist in the Harding Lab of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre at the University Health Network, Toronto, Canada. The work will focus on cellular DNA damage responses, specifically how they influence genome stability, inflammatory signaling and responses to combined radiation therapy and immunotherapy.
The position is available for an energetic, creative fellow with strong expertise in molecular studies of cancer biology. The successful applicant will be expected to bring novel ideas and approaches to the program and contribute to the scientific development of new and existing projects, experimental design, data analysis and manuscript/grant preparation. Candidates should have a strong background in DNA damage signaling, epigenetics, immunology, radiation biology and/or cancer cell biology and hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field. Experience in tissue culture, molecular biology, and mouse tumour models are required. Experience in NGS (e.g. ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq) or DNA damage response/repair assays will be considered an asset. Recent PhD recipients are encouraged to apply.
This is a yearly renewable position and salary will be commensurate with experience and institutional guidelines.
