Postdoctoral fellow in skeletal muscle stem cell biology
Our area of research:
Our laboratory (http://www.ladydavis.ca/en/vahabsoleimani) studies how skeletal muscle stem cells function to repair and regenerate muscle tissue. Specifically, we are interested in molecular mechanisms by which lineage-specific chromatin is established and how perturbation in chromatin structure and function contribute to muscle diseases. We apply NGS technologies such as ChIP- and RNA-Seq, cell lineage tracing and basic biochemistry, molecular and computational biology to study how muscle stem cells repair tissue and maintain their pool.
PhD in basic biomedical sciences or related disciplines from a recognized university, strong background in chromatin biology is required, background in computational biology is an asset.
