Job title

Postdoctoral Fellowship, Structural and Signalling Biology

Research Unit

Structure and Function of the Cell Nucleus Research Unit

Supervision

Matthew J. Smith

Description uniquement disponible en anglais pour le moment.

Mandate 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 field of structural and systems biology related to cancer signalling.

Under the supervision of Dr. Matthew Smith, the recruited fellow will be expected to design and conduct research projects, aid in funding applications and supervise/mentor undergraduate and graduate students.

Projects pertain to networks transmitting signals to/from RAS oncoproteins and related cancer-initiating pathways. Study of these problems will entail a multidisciplinary approach via application of cutting-edge experimental methods in structural biology, biophysics, evolutionary bioinformatics, and cell biology.

The ultimate goal is a comprehensive mechanistic understanding of aberrant protein function and its resultant impact on cell biology, with the eventual possibility to employ the drug discovery capabilities of IRIC.

Job requirements

Education & Experience:

  • Ph.D. in a related field (i.e. biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology)
  • Demonstrated proficiency with NMR spectroscopy and biophysical analysis of protein interactions.
  • In-depth expertise of protein biochemistry and working knowledge of protein expression and purification is a must.

Skills and abilities:

  • Experience, in the determination of protein structures using X-Ray crystallography and in cell culture would be considered an asset.

Application procedure

Interested candidates should submit a full CV, a one-page statement of research interests, and electronic copies of up to three first-author publications in a single PDF attachment to the email address: smithlabiric@gmail.com.

We thank all applicants for their interest. Please take note, however, that only shortlisted candidates for the position will be contacted by email for an interview.
