Graduate Student and 
Postdoctoral Fellow Opportunities

Postdoctoral fellow position
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)
Ivakine laboratory
The position is perfect for recent graduates wishing to employ genome engineering strategies to understand disease pathogenesis and to develop therapeutic strategies for neurodegenerative disorders. Though this ad is focusing on Tay Sachs disease, the lab is also looking for PDFs to study frontotemporal dementia.

Postdoctoral fellow with background in electrophysiology and experience with optical mapping
Stephanie Protze Lab, 
McEwen Stem Cell Research Institute, UHN
From Dr. Protze: "We are using human pluripotent stem cells to study the development and diseases of the human cardiac conduction system. As part of that we have generated protocols to differentiate stem cells into pacemaker cells for the application as a biological pacemaker. We are in the process of establishing a guinea pig model to test the biological pacemaker in vivo.  The postdoc will work on establishing electrophysiology assays to analyze the guinea pig hearts by ECG and optical mapping to probe the functional capacities of the biological pacemakers."For further details and application instructions, please see the attached document.Contact: stephanie.protze@uhnresearch.ca

Application Scientist
Neurescence is a dynamic start-up in Toronto looking for an Application Scientist!
We have developed and commercialized a miniature microscope initially targeted to the neuroscience research market. Our Quartet® system probes are implanted in multiple regions of the brain and spinal cord and follow the activities of 100s of neurons in each region for months, while the subject freely moves around. Our ChromatoneTM system enable simultaneous imaging and stimulation of multiple subpopulations of neurons and in multiple brain areas. Our hardware-software suite is the only technology that allows establishing a causal connection between the experimental parameter and behavior, at both the local and long-range neuronal level.
