Position Summary:
A postdoctoral scientist position is available for a highly motivated individual interested in drug and vaccine target discovery for Chagas disease. Chagas disease is caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi and affects over 8 million people worldwide. The project involves exploring yeast surface display expressing a genome-wide library of Trypanosoma cruzi (already available, PMID: 36532687) to identify drug and vaccine targets. It also includes target validation using cellular and biochemical approaches (e.g., surface plasma resonance, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, single-cell sequencing) and in vivo experiments to test drug or vaccine efficacy in mice. The project includes the support of a medicinal chemist and collaborators in Israel and Argentina. There will be potential opportunities to collaborate on other projects in the lab (see lab webpage). The candidate should know molecular and cellular biology or biochemistry. Skills in bioinformatics are desirable.

Qualifications:
Ph.D. degree with laboratory experience in molecular and cellular biology (or related disciplines); knowledge or interest in bioinformatics (Linux/R); good communication skills; highly motivated.

Must meet Postdoc Eligibility Requirements: https://www.mcgill.ca/gps/postdocs/fellows/registration/eligibility

Responsibilities:

To perform and design experiments within the project framework, represent the laboratory in national/international conferences, support mentoring less experienced trainees/staff, and engage in laboratory activities and organization.

Timeline: Start immediately (but negotiable)—contract will be for 1 year, but subject to renewal for up to four years.

Salary: Minimum - 34,611.00 (negotiable based on experience)

Summary: Chagas disease (CD) is caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi and affects over 8 million people, mainly in South and Central America, but it has spread to several European countries, Japan, Australia, the United States, and Canada. CD became a global health threat with an economic burden of 7.19 billion USD/year resulting from reduced productivity, high mortality, and increased care costs associated with Chagas cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). CD acute stage initiates with flu-like symptoms and can develop into a chronic stage often manifested by gastrointestinal and cardiac diseases. Benznidazole and nifurtimox are the current lines of treatment; however, they fail to treat the chronic stage and are toxic, and vaccines are unavailable. We have developed a genome-wide library of T. cruzi for yeast surface display (YSD). We will use the YSD library to screen peptidomimetic drug-like molecules to identify their targets. We will perform structure-activity relationship analysis with drug-like molecules and targets for compound optimization and test in mutant parasites that overexpress or lack the target protein. Small molecules will be validated in an animal model of cardiovascular CD disease. There will be opportunities to travel to collaborating countries. Vaccine project information is provided under request.

Funding: International Development Research Centre (IDRC)/Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

Dr. Qian (Vivian) Liu’s laboratory at the Institute of Parasitology at McGill University is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work on virus biogenesis and super-resolution microscopy.  

Position Summary:
Dr. Liu’s laboratory is interested in understanding the entry and assembly of emerging paramyxovirus and coronavirus in host cells and the cells’ defense against these fundamental processes during virus infection. The lab has built a single-molecule imaging platform that resolves virus-host interaction complexes at 10 nm resolution on a millisecond scale. Projects in the lab focus on mapping the spatial and temporal organizations and dynamics of the virus-host interactions using CRISPR gene editing, super-resolution imaging, and mathematical approaches.  
The successful applicant will use the state-of-the-art single-molecule imaging platform to study the virus entry and assembly processes and the cell’s innate immune response. The applicant will conduct multiple projects under the supervision of Dr. Liu. The applicant will perform mechanism studies to evaluate the effects of the spatial organizations of the protein complexes on their function in the context of virus biogenesis and antiviral innate immunity. The applicant will work with scientists with diverse expertise including computer science, biochemistry, immunology, and virology.

Qualifications:  

•    Doctoral degree in life sciences, such as cell biology, virology, microbiology, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology or related fields received within the last 5 years.
•    Approximately 3-5 years of related work experience in a laboratory.
•    Ability to work independently in a team environment.
•    Excellent time management skills including multi-tasking.

Please refer to the How to Apply for a Job (for External Candidates) job aid for instructions on how to apply.

If you are an active McGill employee (ie: currently in an active contract or position at McGill University), do not apply through this Career Site. Login to your McGill Workday account and apply to this posting using the Find Jobs report (type Find Jobs in the search bar).

Position Summary:

The experimental particle physics group at McGill University is looking for a postdoctoral fellow in experimental subatomic physics to join our local nEXO team. We are an energetic group with members at all academic stages.  While every member has their own project, teamwork is a central aspect in our research. We consider diversity an asset and hope to increase it within our group.

nEXO is a next generation neutrinoless double beta decay experiment which is being developed by an international collaboration. nEXO will search for the latter beyond the Standard Model weak process in the isotope Xe-136 in a liquid-xenon time-projection chamber. In collaboration with other Canadian groups, the team at McGill is investigating photon emission and transport properties in liquid xenon. With the so-called Light-only Liquid Xenon (LoLX) experiment we aim to measure Cherenkov light emission in liquid xenon using arrays of silicon photomultipliers and investigate cross-talk between them.


LoLX is a small experiment with the potential of enhancing the background rejection capabilities of next generation experiments searching for neutrinoless double beta decay and dark matter interaction in liquid Xenon. Thanks to its small size, LoLX offers the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of an experiment, including taking a major leadership role. Besides LoLX, the group is developing methods to characterize integrated, large-area silicon photomultipliers.

Your tasks will be:

  • Lead the operation of the liquid xenon system LoLX at McGill.
  • Support the upgrade of LoLX.
  • Analyze LoLX data and publish results.
  • Support characterization of integrated SiPM modules in a cryogenic environment.

Annual Salary: $52,000
Qualifications:
You should have a background in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field at the time of appointment. Ph.D. candidates should indicate when they are expecting to fulfill their Ph.D. requirements. The appointment is initially for two years with the possibility of renewal.

Please arrange to have three letters of reference sent electronically to Thomas Brunner. Applications will be reviewed starting April until the position is filled.

Please send inquiries if you have questions regarding this position to Prof. Thomas Brunner thomas.brunner@mcgill.ca.
