Postdoctoral Fellowship in Dysregulated RNA metabolism driving Cancer at the Institute for Research in immunology and Cancer (IRIC) - Université de Montréal, Canada

Posted on October 30,

Dr. Katherine Borden (she/her) is looking for an energetic and creative individual with experience in RNA processing and/or cancer biology to join her laboratory at the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC) – Université de Montréal. The specific focus will be on splicing in cancer.

About the lab
The role of dysregulated mRNA metabolism in driving cancer is an emerging, exciting field with demonstrated clinical applications. Studies in Professor Borden’s lab have been foundational and revolutionized the view of how mRNA processing can drive cancer, leading to more than 150 publications in high-impact journals, and to international and national awards. Results from the lab have also translated into multiple clinical trials with promising responses in patients. 

A dynamic environment in a multicultural city
The Université de Montréal campus provides an integrative setting with diverse fundamental research activities combined to produce a rich, energizing environment. The Borden lab believes that the best science arises out of diversity in all of its forms, and is comprised of a mixture of students, post-doctoral fellows and research staff with a strong international flavour. It provides a unique training environment integrating structural biology, biochemistry, RNA biology, cancer biology and clinical sciences and has direct access to state-of-the-art facilities to accelerate research. Université de Montréal prides itself on offering great work-life balance and consequently, postdoctoral employment benefits include more than four weeks of paid vacation per year, paid sick days, parental leave, and pension contributions. Young parents will also be interested in knowing that daycare in Montréal is affordable and accessible to all. 

How to apply?
Current postdoctoral fellows or Ph.D. students who are nearing graduation can apply. Salary offered will be commensurate with experience and will be paid from already obtained research funds. Please send your CV, including a full list of publications and list of references, to [email protected]. Only selected candidates will receive follow-up information.
