Postdoctoral Fellow in Regenerative Medicine
Sunnybrook Research Institute (affiliated with the University of Toronto)

 
Sunnybrook Research Institute (affiliated with the University of Toronto) has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Marc Jeschke, Division of Biological Sciences, Sunnybrook Research Institute and Ross Tilley Burn Centre (RTBC). The RTBC is the largest burn centre in Canada and treats patients with minor and major burn injuries. The PI has appointments with the University of Toronto Department of Surgery and Divisions of Plastic and General Surgery, Department of Immunology and Institute of Medical Sciences.
 
Description
The desired incumbent is an enthusiastic, highly motivated, organized individual with exceptional interpersonal skills who will enjoy collaborating and conducting research in a stimulating environment. The candidate will conduct research in the area of regenerative medicine which encompasses Stem cell biology, 3D-skin printing, biology of wound healing and scarring. We made recently major strides in these areas and hope to have novel therapeutic approaches that can be implemented into the clinical scenario. The advantage of this study is the direct clinical implication of the research; once mechanisms are discovered intervention will be tested and a clinical trial will soon follow.
 
Candidates should be highly motivated with an interest in translational research, scarring, stem cells, wound healing, and inflammation.
 
Skills and Qualifications:

  • PhD or PhD (c) (or combined MD/PhD) in Biological Sciences. Molecular Biology, or Immunology
  • Experience in some or all of the following techniques: tissue processing, imaging (e.g. confocal microscopy), flow cytometry, biochemical techniques (e.g. western blot, IP’s, etc.), primary cell culture, animal/rodent models, molecular biology techniques (real-time gene expression, etc.)
  • Some familiarity with isolating and manipulating mouse or human stem cells
  • Self-motivated, detail-oriented, and results-oriented
  • Ability to develop and maintain positive relationships with colleagues
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills
  • Proven track record of publications in high quality journals required (minimum of 5 publications); some successful minor grant funding desirable

 
In the Jeschke lab, we pride ourselves on fostering a positive, open, exciting, and productive research environment. Qualified and like-minded candidates are invited to submit a cover letter (brief description of research experience and interest) and CV to:  Dr. Marc Jeschke at marc.jeschke@sunnybrook.ca (with “Postdoctoral Fellow – Regenerative Medicine” in the subject line). 
 
We thank all applicants for their interest but only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
 
The Sunnybrook Research Institute (or Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre) is committed to providing accessible employment practices that are in compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (‘AODA’). If you require accommodation for disability during any stage of the recruitment process, please indicate this in your cover letter.

Postdoctoral/Research Scientist positions
Center for Immunology and Inflammation, The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research
Long Island, New York

 

Postdoctoral/Research Scientist positions are immediately available in the Center for Immunology and Inflammation at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research of Northwell Health, the largest healthcare provider in New York. The successful candidates will focus on our ongoing projects highlighting the role of cold-inducible RNA-binding protein (CIRP), a novel damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP) on phenotypic and functional plasticity of innate immune cells during inflammation. The self-motivated candidates will also explore the novel pathophysiology and therapeutic interventions through the modulation of innate immune functions for controlling exaggerated inflammation and organ injuries caused by sepsis or organ ischemia-reperfusion (I/R)-mediated injuries. 

The applicants should have a PhD/MD degree and profound background/interests in Immunology, Molecular Medicine, or Molecular Biology fields. Preference will be given to those applicants who have prior post-doctoral experience in studying animal models of inflammatory diseases and have peer-reviewed publications. The candidates with expertise in DAMP-related works, animal surgery, flow cytometry, and microscopic imaging will be given added credential.

Salary will be applicable to the experience. The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research offers a generous package of salary, health care, and other fringe benefits.

Candidates should email their CV, a cover letter, and list of two references to:
 
Ping Wang, MD
Chief Scientific Officer, The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research
Professor & Head, The Center for Immunology & Inflammation,
The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research
Professor of Surgery and Molecular Medicine, Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell
