Description

Dr. Christine Vande Velde is looking to recruit a graduate student (Ph.D.) and a postdoc to her laboratory located at the CRCHUM facility, a research center affiliated with the Université de Montréal.

The lab is focused on understanding the molecular pathways that contribute to motor neuron degeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS; also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease and Maladie de Charcot). Techniques include molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, and microscopy. The lab uses both tissue culture and transgenic rodent models of disease. Projects include characterizing the role of TDP-43 in RNA granule dynamics, defining pathogenic mechanisms induced by misfolded SOD1, and exploration on hnRNP A1 in ALS biology. 

Salary will be based on institutional/CIHR guidelines.
