Postdoctoral Position #1

1 Position is available for a PDF to study our target proteins of interest. The potential candidates have a strong background in protein x-ray crystallography a/o cryo-EM. We offer projects in structure-property investigations of dependence receptor complexes and Carrier-Pathfinder systems for the targeted delivery of boron nanodiamonds. The candidates are expected to apply an integrated structural biology and biophysics approach with the final goal to feed our structure-based drug design pipelines.

In general, candidates must have a strong academic background in the relevant field, have an excellent publication record, communication skills, and be willing to work on collaborative projects with academic and industry partners. Applicants should be strong candidates for fellowship applications (in Manitoba e.g. MHRC and NSERC/CIHR; for European candidates also European/international programs).

Postdoctoral Position #2

1 Position is available for an expert in development of eDNA metabarcoding programs are invited to apply. We offer projects in habitat monitoring in context with industry activities in the very north of Canada (“above 60”). These projects are developed in close collaboration with several industry partners and the Kivalliq Inuit Association (KIA). In addition, data mining and AI technologies will be employed to establish a world-wide unique database combining water quality assessment, PAC monitoring with eDNA metabarcoding. The positions are embedded within the COGRAD initiative.
