Great NEW POSITIONS IN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY!!!
IN QUEBEC/MONTREAL Area, CANADA
1. Postdoctoral position to study signal transduction and protein
phosphorylation in mammalian
A postdoctoral position is immediately available to study signal
transduction and protein phosphorylation in mammalian system.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in biochemistry/molecular biology/cell
biology or related discipline. Experience in molecular
biology is required and familiarity with protein biochemistry and protein
phosphorylation will be advantageous. Salary will be
based on the experience of the candidate and MRC guideline.
Deadline: October 15, 1997
2. Post-Doc to investigate the function of PEX, the putative
metalloendopeptidase implicated in X-linked hypophosphatemia.
The project is aimed at investigating the function of PEX, the putative
metalloendopeptidase implicated in X-linked
hypophosphatemia. Studies will focus on the role of PEX in in vitro and in
vivo bone formation.
Salary will be based on the MRC scale and commensurate with experience.
3. Research technician Position(genetics of the 22q11.2 microdeletion
A research technician is needed immediately to work on a research project
on the genetics of the 22q11.2 microdeletion
syndrome. The project involves:
* building a transcription map of the critical region using exon
trapping, cDNA selection and cDNA library screening
* fine mapping small deletions found in unusual patients by Southern
blotting and DIRVISH (direct visual hybridization)
* examination of epigenetic phenomenon that could influence gene
expression in the region
The techniques involved are standard molecular biology: Southern/Northern
blotting and hybridization, plasmid/cosmid DNA
preps, restriction mapping, bacterial cloning, PCR, cDNA library screening,
DEADLINE: Sept 30th 1997 or ASAP
IN ATLANTIC CANADA
4. FACULTY OF VETERINARY MEDICINE
PART-TIME POSITION - PHARMACOLOGIST
The Department of Anatomy and Physiology, Atlantic Veterinary College,
invites applications for a 16 week part-time (25
hr/wk) contract appointment at the Assistant Professor level to commence on
or before January 1998. The term of the
appointment will be for 3 years contingent upon satisfactory annual
Teaching responsibilities include course coordination and delivery of
lectures and tutorials in a 3 credit introductory
pharmacology course in the UPEI Nursing program. The successful applicant
will also have the opportunity to engage in either
independent or collaborative research within the University.
Starting date is January 1, 1998. Applications will be accepted until
September 30, 1997.
IN MANITOBA, CANADA
5. Post Doctoral Position to construct adenoviral vectors that express
tumor suppressor genes
The project involves construction of adenoviral vector with human tumor
suppresor gene. Investigation of this recombinant
adenoviral vector on human hepatocellular carcinoma cells - HepG2 and
Deadline: October 31, 1997
6. Postdoctoral Research Position in Bioinformatics
Bay-Paul Center for Comparative Biology nd Molecular Evolution, Marine
Seeking a postdoctoral associate to join in work on genomics and molecular
evolution. Ideally such a person would have a
background in both computer science/programming and molecular biology. The
area of work is the molecular biology of
Escherichia coli and the field of genomics. Focus is on the analysis of
newly available sequences of all genomes from the point
of view of predicting functions of the gene products and also from the
point of view of the mechanisms of molecular evolution
of all proteins of life. We are developing new automated approaches to
comparative protein sequence analysis with emphasis
on evolutionary relationships. Much information resides in genomic
sequences that is not presently being extracted using
currently available tools.
The work is carried out at the Bay-Paul Center for Comparative Biology and
Molecular Evolution, Marine Biological
Laboratory. The institution is in Woods Hole, MA, a small town with 6
scientific institutions, located on the southern coast of
Massachusetts, 75 miles south of Boston.
7. Post-Doc to develop non-viral delivery systems for systemic gene
Development of non-viral delivery systems for systemic gene delivery. My
group is part of a newly established institute
working on the development of viral and non-viral gene delivery systems to
be used in gene therapy of cancer.
Our work will focus on synthesis, characterization and application of
polymers for surface modification of DNA complexes.
Our aim is to inhibit undesired interactions of DNA complexes with the
physiological surrounding in vivo, to increase the
half-life of DN A complexes in vivo, to increase the bioavailability of
plasmid DNA as a drug and to achieve levels of gene
expression in vivo relevant for clinical applications.
This postdoctoral position is limited to 3 years, the net salary is approx.
DM 39.000,- per year.
Available immediately until the position is filled.
