Reference number:  

Description:

The Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC) at the University of Montréal has an opening for a funded postdoctoral fellowship in the Laboratory of Signaling and Cell Growth. The laboratory uses an interdisciplinary approach that combines molecular and cellular biology, functional genomics/proteomics, mouse genetic models and chemical biology to understand how signal transduction pathways control cell fate of normal and cancer cells. A major focus of the lab is to study the regulation and functions of the classical ERK1/2 MAP kinase pathway and the atypical ERK3/4-MK5 signaling pathway. We have developed over the years all the necessary tools, including a collection of genetically-engineered mouse models, to study the physiological functions of these protein kinases as well as their potential implication in diseases like cancer. Specific projects include:

 

  • characterization of novel substrates of ERK1/2 MAP kinases involved in pre-mRNA splicing and role in ES cells differentiation and cancer
  • system-level identification of the ubiquitin-proteasome system components (E2s, E3s and DUBs) controlling ERK3 stability
  • proteomic analysis of ERK3 and ERK4 interactome
  • study of the role of ERK3/4 signaling in innate immunity and inflammation

 

Under the supervision of Dr. Sylvain Meloche, the recruited fellow will be expected to design and conduct research projects, as well as supervise and mentor graduate students and interns. He will be solicited to present his research data to laboratory meetings, institutional forums, and national and international scientific meetings.
