POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

A postdoctoral research position is immediately available in the laboratory of Xavier Roucou, PhD at the University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Highly motivated early-career scientists interested in the discovery of novel proteins translated from non-canonical open reading frames are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to a candidate with previous experience with mass spectrometry-based proteomics. The candidate should also have a strong background in basic biochemistry and cell biology techniques. At the time of appointment, candidates must hold a PhD.

Several projects are active in the laboratory, including the identification of novel leukemia-specific antigens in acute myeloid and lymphoid leukemia (AML and ALL) cells. AML and ALL are the most lethal of all hematologic cancers, and we aim at developing precision therapeutic vaccines.

We want a creative, independent and ambitious candidate who is excited about science. This postdoctoral position represents a considerable opportunity for a qualified candidate. Little research has been done on novel proteins translated from unannotated coding sequences, and it would be easy to build a career around the subject. We foresee a number of straightforward high-impact publications that could result.

The initial appointment is for 12 months, with renewal based on performance. This is a full-time appointment.

Sherbrooke is a university town nestled in the beautiful Eastern Townships of the Province of Quebec, close to the US border and just a short drive away from Montreal and Quebec City. The University of Sherbrooke provides an exceptional quality of work and life environment: cost of living is low, with excellent access to outdoor activities.

To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and cover letter, which includes a brief statement of interest and qualifications and the names of three professional referees, to Dr. Roucou at xavier.roucou@usherbrooke.ca
