Graduate Fellowship Description
A postdoctoral position to isolate enzymes involved in secondary metabolite pathways of plants and their pathogenic fungi is available. A Ph. D. degree in enzyme/protein chemistry, biochemistry or related area, a strong background in plant and fungal protein/enzyme isolation/characterization, enzyme inhibition assays, and extensive experience with HPLC analysis (diode array and mass detectors) are essential. As well, experience with fungal culturing and in developing biological assays to determine antifungal bioactivities, and experience with protein sequencing techniques, proteomics and bioinformatics will be a very important asset.
Our research program has significant technological infrastructure integrated in a challenging multidisciplinary research environment. In addition, the University has excellent facilities and the required spectroscopic instrumentation is adjacent to the Department of Chemistry.
The required qualifications should be evidenced by a very strong publication record in international journals in the field. This position is available immediately, however applications will be considered until position is filled. Salary commensurate with experience. Candidates whose first language is not English may be required to provide a certificate of English proficiency. Spouses of PDF fellows are eligible for a work permit in Canada.
To apply: only electronic applications are accepted, pdf files only. Candidates are invited to send cover letter and resumé describing the most important research contributions relevant to the position to the e-mail shown below. Reference letters should be sent directly to the e-mail address below (at least two reference letters, one of which must be from current supervisor). Candidates whose first language is not English may be required to provide a certificate of English proficiency.
