Positions in yeast labs
Postdoctoral position in evolutionary systems biology. Québec, Canada. (posted Feb 23, 2016)
Postdoctoral position in evolutionary genomics and systems biology in the Landry Laboratory
A postdoctoral position is available in the Landry Laboratory at Université Laval in Québec City under the Canada Research Chair in Evolutionary Cell and Systems Biology. The PDF will work on a project at the interface of genomics, cell biology and evolution to investigate the mechanisms of evolution of gene and protein networks. The specific project will be developed with the selected candidate. The selected candidate will combine experimental evolution, high-throughput screening and bioinformatics, and the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as experimental model system. The candidate is expected to have a PhD in biology or a related discipline, and a strong background in molecular and cell biology with at least basic skills in bioinformatics and statistics (R, Python or Perl). The candidate should have strong leadership skills, motivation and creativity and be able to work in a team of collaborators. The Landry lab is located at the Institut de Biologie Intégrative et des Systèmes (IBIS) of Université Laval and is part of the Quebec Network for Research on Protein Function, Engineering, and Applications (PROTEO). IBIS and PROTEO offer very stimulating training environment and cutting edge technologies in genomics and proteomics. The Landry lab is an international team of 15 students, PDFs and research associates from different backgrounds (microbiology, biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry) addressing questions in evolutionary cell and systems biology.
The application package (1 single PDF file) should include a motivation letter demonstrating the interest of the candidate for the field and his/her ability to perform this type of research, a short project proposal (half a page), reprints of the candidate’s most important contributions, a CV and the contact information of three people who can provide letters of reference. The file should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Starting date could be as early as June 2016. The competition will remain open until a candidate is selected. For recent publications from the Landry lab, please visit: http://landrylab.ibis.ulaval.ca/
Postdoctoral position in Cell Biology and Genetics, Northern Kentucky University (posted May 7, 2015)
Laboratory of Erin Strome, Biological Sciences Department, Northern Kentucky University (Cincinnati Area)
A teaching-scholar faculty position is available to study mechanisms of haploinsufficiency induced genome instability. The position would be ideal for someone who will be pursuing a teaching and research balanced career and potentially be interested in a faculty job at an undergraduate institution. The postdoctoral fellow will have opportunities to develop their experimental and scientific credentials while also getting teaching experience and mentoring on teaching and lots of direct contact mentoring undergraduates in research lab projects.
Qualifications: Applicants should have a Ph.D. (ABD candidates will be considered) with a strong background in molecular biology/biochemistry/genetics and should be capable of conducting standard molecular biology tests including PCR and qPCR, Westerns, and siRNA experiments.
