Research Program Description:
We are recruiting a post-doctoral fellow to contribute to on-going quantitative and functional proteomics studies of chromatin. More specifically, the selected post-doctoral fellow will actively participate to the characterization of epigenetic regulators and their contribution to transcriptional regulation and cellular fitness.
The Lambert laboratory is investigating transcriptional regulation and its impact on cellular fitness. While healthy cells maintain a level of transcriptional flexibility, it is now recognized that it is lost in numerous pathologies, notably cancer, leading to a dependence to specific transcriptional program for cellular survival. Within this emerging field of research, the lab research program aims to better understand these “transcriptional addictions” in unhealthy cells and how inhibitors of bromodomains, a domain found in key transcriptional regulators, can be employed for clinical benefit.
Toward this goal, the selected post-doctoral fellow will develop and employ novel proteomics and genomics approaches, in additional to an array of molecular, biochemical and imaging techniques to explore modes of transcriptional regulation and their deregulation in pathologies. In addition, the selected post-doctoral fellow will actively contribute to the writing of scientific manuscripts in addition to presenting his/her results in local, national and international conferences.
We are seeking a recent PhD graduate with a very good academic standing in the field of life sciences (epigenetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, etc.) and/or bioinformatics applied to proteomics who is dynamic and highly motivated by the possibility of doing scientific research.
A demonstrated experience by publications in quality journals in the use of proteomics and/or bioinformatic tools is required.
An advance mastery of the English language, that is a level proficiency sufficient for the fluent reading, writing and talking about science matters and manuscripts, is required.
Experiences in the analysis of proteomics and/or epigenetics data or in the use of virtualized servers are assets.
To apply, the candidate must provide a cover letter and a CV (containing recent academic transcripts) to:
Financial support for 2 years will be provided.
Please note that only selected applicants will be contacted.
