CEEHRC / Postdoctoral Research Fellow in pediatric brain tumour model development /

A full-time position for a postdoctoral fellow is available in the research laboratory of Dr. Nada Jabado, at the Research Institute of McGill University Health Centre in Montreal, Canada. Priority will be given to candidates with good knowledge of chromatin biology and/or brain development and experience in wet and dry bench work. Research in the Jabado lab focuses on the investigation of pediatric brain tumours, specifically high-grade gliomas that are epigenetically dysregulated, such as those carrying histone 3 mutations. The lab uses diverse approaches to this end, including the genomic and epigenomic profiling of patient tumours, xenografts and transgenic mouse models, cell culture studies on primary and manipulated cell lines and drug assays on mouse models and cultured cells to test potential treatment agents. We use many state-of-the-art genomic/epigenomic techniques, such as ChIP-seq, Hi-C and single-cell RNA-seq. Dr. Jabado has numerous collaborations with research groups across the world that allow us to gain access to other specialized techniques.
