Dr. David Hill's Laboratory

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pancreatic Cell Biology and mechanisms leading to diabetes

We have an opening in Summer 2021 for a national post-doctoral fellow to study the endocrine and paracrine mechanisms responsible for the homeostatic control of insulin release and the cellular make-up of the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas. Experimental regimes include nutritional and transgenic mouse models of type 2 and gestational diabetes and the experimental techniques utilized include RNA and protein quantification, scRNAseq, immunohistochemistry using confocal and fluorescence microscopy, and isolation, culture or perifusion of isolated islets. Human pancreatic tissues are also available for ontological studies. The studies require a strong laboratory experience in animal handling, molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and microscopy of fixed and live cells. The successful applicant will also be expected to contribute to the laboratory supervision of undergraduate and graduate students, and to share in general laboratory management. The successful applicant will hold a Ph.D. degree, and will have demonstrated excellent communication skills and ability to work effectively in a team environment. While funding for the position exists the successful applicant will also be encouraged to apply for an external postdoctoral fellowship. Please send a letter of application including a one page description of past research experience and interests, a CV, and names and contact information of two references to: david.hill@lawsonresearch.com

Dr. Jane Rylett's Laboratory

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology

We have immediate openings for national or international post-doctoral fellows to study cellular and molecular events regulating chemical communication by cholinergic neurons and pathology associated with Alzheimer disease. Projects involve use of neuronal culture and genetically-modified mouse models, and require a strong background with extensive laboratory experience in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, confocal microscopy of fixed and live cells, and/or protein chemistry. Successful applicants will hold a Ph.D. degree, and will have demonstrated excellent oral and written communication skills and ability to work effectively in a team environment. While funding for these positions has been secured, successful applicants will be encouraged to apply for independent postdoctoral fellowships. Please send a letter of application including a one page description of past research experience and interests, a CV, and names and contact information of three references to: jane.rylett@schulich.uwo.ca
