Our developmental biology laboratory is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to apply advanced knowledge and skills to generate new fundamental insights into morphogenesis or transcriptional regulation.

We are located with the Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Program of the Research Institute at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and are affiliated with the University of Toronto.  Our lab focuses on mechanisms of morphogenesis and transcription in the early organ-stage mouse embryo using methods that combine biological and physical approaches.  We employ mouse genetics, live imaging, genomics, chromatin conformation capture, force sensor measurements using FLIM, and custom micro-scale devices to measure tissue properties in vivo.  Our four PhD students and two postdocs have backgrounds predominantly in biology, but engineering and physics are also represented within the lab and among our collaborators.  We are seeking an enthusiastic and creative researcher with an open mind and a strong work ethic to join our team. Please submit your CV and a cover letter highlighting your past research achievements and future research interests.

Here’s What You’ll Get To Do:

  • Complete one principal project and contribute to others within the lab or with external collaborators.
  • Collaborate with researchers in other disciplines within and external to the lab.
  • Learn custom methods and assist in devising new ones.
  • Details of potential projects are available upon request.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • PhD or equivalent degree.
  • Knowledge of genetics, developmental and cell biology is required.
  • Knowledge of biophysics, computer science or engineering is beneficial.
  • Strong work ethic, organisation and collaborative ability.
  • Creativity and open mindedness.
