The Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto is inviting applications for a full-time one-year Limited Term Research Associate position with primary research interests in exocrine and endocrine pancreas cell biology, with a focus on membrane fusion SNARE proteins and its role in the secretion and autophagy within exocrine and endocrine pancreas. This successful candidate will conduct research for three CIHR grants and be part of a strong team of leaders in exocrine and endocrine research.

Research Areas

The main focus of the research will be on the exocrine pancreas, using human and rodent pancreases to investigate the role of SNARE proteins in autophagy fusion events that underlie pancreatic acinar injury as pathogenic mechanisms of pancreatitis. This involves comprehensive technical expertise in animal models including fine animal surgery to induce pancreatitis, high-level live-cell microscopy imaging, biochemical (immunoprecipitation) and molecular biology expertise (mutant construction, lenti/adenovirus construction). A second research focus will be in pancreatic islet biology in the role of SNARE proteins in insulin granule exocytosis, involving technical expertise in the above-mentioned assays.

Required Qualifications

  1. Possess a PhD or equivalent with a minimum three (03) years postdoc experience in the above-mentioned array of exocrine and endocrine pancreas assays.
  2. Must have: a strong publication record; demonstrated success in the writing and preparation of manuscripts, presentations, reports, briefs, and scientific abstracts and manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals; experience conducting and leading systematic reviews; strong knowledge of issues relating to cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry; and, experience coordinating and conducting laboratory-based research.
  3. Skills in both quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and such that applies to imaging analysis.
