Postdoctoral

Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization (VIDO), Univeristy of Saskatchewan -

The Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization (VIDO), Canada’s Centre for Pandemic Research, is a world leader in infectious disease research and vaccine development for humans and animals. Located at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada, VIDO is home to one of the largest and most advanced containment level 3 facilities in the world. To strengthen the preparedness for emerging infectious diseases we are currently expanding our infrastructure to include containment level 4 capacity, a GMP vaccine manufacturing facility, and a new animal housing facility. Our vision includes having the capacity to study any emerging disease in any animal model embracing a One Health approach to prevent emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases in humans and animals.

University of Montreal - CRCHUM -

https://www.chumontreal.qc.ca/en/emplois/postdoctoral-fellowresearch-associate-chum-microbiome-centre-dr-bertrand-routy-and-dr

The CHUM Microbiome Centre led by Drs. Bertrand Routy and Dr. Arielle Elkrief are looking for a postdoctoral or associate level research candidate in bioinformatics and computational oncology to analyze microbiome samples sequenced by metagenomics.

The team currently leads several prospective clinical studies (NCT04951583, NCT05303493 and NCT05805319) testing different strategies, including fecal transplantation, prebiotics, probiotics and diet, to improve the composition of the microbiome for patients with lung cancer and melanoma treated with immunotherapy.

The specific role of the candidate will be to perform computational analyses on samples from various pan-Canadian randomized clinical trials evaluating the evolution of the microbiome before and after the different treatments and over time. In addition, she/he will have to supervise students at MSc and PhD levels in bioinformatics.

Our team recently received a large $3,800,000 grant to conduct one of the largest randomized clinical trials in the world to study FMT plus immunotherapy. The candidate will successfully integrate longitudinal multiomics analysis to understand the mechanism of FMT.

University of Florida -

The University of Florida (UF) is the flagship campus of the State of Florida university system and is ranked as the #5 best public US university according to US News and World Report. UF is one of only a few comprehensive universities, having medical, veterinary, dental, nursing, public health, and engineering disciplines all co-localized on the same, contiguous campus. UF is a highly collaborative environment that provides researchers with many opportunities for learning (e.g., top seminar programs, excellent core research facilities) and research collaborations. Gainesville is located in the northern region of Florida, within 1-1.5 hours of each coast, and just 1.5-2 hours to Orlando and Tampa. It is a small to medium-sized city with a low cost of living, good restaurants and entertainment, and southern hospitality. While Gainesville is widely recognized as the home of the Gators, it is quickly becoming known as a center for innovation and a place with a lifestyle that’s comfortable for families, yet attractive for young professionals.
