The Molecular and Cellular Virology Laboratory (virologylab.ca, Principal Investigator Dr. Denys Khaperskyy, Assistant Professor) at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine is recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow to lead a research project on viral mechanisms of host shutoff. The project’s focus will fall within the theme of 5-year CIHR Project grant titled “Molecular mechanisms of host shutoff by respiratory viruses and their contribution to viral pathogenesis”. The qualified candidate will hold a PhD degree in microbiology, immunology, or a closely related field and have at least 2 years of research experience in virology, immunology, cell biology, or a similar field of biomedical sciences if PhD degree was obtained prior to 2020. Experience working with mammalian cell culture and mastery of basic molecular biology techniques is required. Prior research involving viruses and/or innate immune responses to viral infection in cell culture models or animal infection models would be an asset.

McGill University

Identifying the molecular underpinnings of chemically gated signaling in the brain in health and disease. To do this, the postdoctoral researcher will use electrophysiology, imaging and genetic techniques to primarily study cultured cells and different mouse model. As a member of my lab, I will also expect the postdoctoral researcher to participate in lab activities such as lab meetings, attend conferences and also help with the training of other lab members. During a typical working week, the postdoctoral researcher would be expected to arrive in the lab by 9 am and work until 6pm and, in some cases, during the weekend depending on the need of the project.
