Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada - Post-doctoral Fellow Position


A position for a postdoctoral fellow is open in the group of Dr. Barbara Karten in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada.

Research in the group aims to elucidate mechanisms linking intracellular cholesterol trafficking and mitochondrial function, with focus on the consequences of increased mitochondrial cholesterol levels in neurons and neurodegenerative diseases.

The position is grant-paid, with funding available through an operating grant of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for at least two years, and a possible extension to three years. Successful candidates must hold a recent PhD with a strong background in molecular/cell biology, and/or molecular neuroscience, be highly motivated, and have adequate fluency in written and spoken English. Previous experience in lipid metabolism, mitochondrial function and/or fluorescence imaging is an asset.

To apply, please submit your curriculum vitae, a one-page statement of research experience and interests, and names and contact information for three references to:

Dr. Barbara Karten
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Dalhousie University
Sir Charles Tupper Medical Building 9G
5850 College Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia,
Canada, B3H 4R2

Goodchild Lab, Center for the Biology of Disease, Leuven, Belgium - Post-doctoral Research Position: Membrane Lipids in Neurological Disease


A post-doctoral position on membrane lipid regulation in neuronal function and disease is available from September 2016 in the Goodchild Lab, Center for the Biology of Disease, Leuven, Belgium.

Our group has associated abnormal membrane lipid synthesis with the neurological disease of dystonia. The project will now explore the biochemical mechanism underlying how the DYT1 dystonia torsin protein regulates lipid metabolism. We are also interested to develop projects on how abnormal lipid metabolism interferes with neuronal function in dystonia and other neurological diseases.

Our group works with cell, fly and mouse systems, so we provide an excellent opportunity to learn new experimental approaches.

    Profile
  • The project will benefit from good knowledge of lipid metabolism or endomembrane cell biology. However, we will consider a broad range of backgrounds.
  • We are especially interested in candidates with Drosophila molecular genetics experience who would also join the large fly research community in Leuven.
  • Candidates must have strong English knowledge and have received a PhD degree within the last six years, or be due to complete in 2016.
  • Financial support is available but the successful candidate is encouraged to obtain an independent fellowship (Marie-Curie, EMBO, or National funding organizations).
