Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Immunology and Neuroscience
UBC’s Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, within the Faculty of Medicine and the Department of Medical Genetics at the University of British Columbia, seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Scientist to help define the biological mechanisms leading to the onset of multiple sclerosis. The candidate will focus, and take the lead, on the characterization of a newly developed animal model of multiple sclerosis based on the recent discovery of pathogenic mutations in multi-incident families (Wang Z. et al. 2016 Neuron 90, 948-54). Applicants should hold a Ph.D. specializing in immunology and/or neuroscience, with expertise in cell and molecular biology (western blotting, confocal microscopy, cell cultures, tissue handling, etc.) and the behavioral study of animal models. Previous experience with the experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis model would be advantageous but not essential. He/she will also be expected to participate in the supervision of research assistants and graduate students, as well as grant and manuscript writing.
