Drs. Jason Fish (PhD, Senior Scientist) and Kathryn Howe (MD, PhD, Surgeon-Scientist, Vascular Surgery, University Health Network (UHN)) are looking to hire an enthusiastic, self-directed post-doctoral fellow to work in the area of endothelial microRNA regulation of atherosclerotic plaques. Our laboratory is specifically focused on the role of extracellular vesicle (EV)-derived microRNA regulation of efferocytosis, a process that is impaired in atherosclerotic disease. In addition to cell culture and animal models, we have translational studies looking at extracellular microRNA and efferocytosis in human tissue.

We are looking for a post-doctoral candidate that has completed their PhD and will be able to join our laboratory by Summer/Fall 2019. The successful candidate will be proficient in molecular and cellular biology, genomics, atherosclerosis animal models, and imaging techniques. They will have multiple first-author publications in peer reviewed journals and excellent oral communication and technical writing skills. It will be expected they contribute to mentorship of junior colleagues and demonstrate collegiality, professionalism, and interpersonal skills.

The candidate will have the opportunity to work in a robust laboratory with PhD candidates and post-doctoral fellows who collaborate within the larger cardiovascular research group at Toronto General Hospital Research Institute (TGHRI). Trainees will have access to our research incubator environment converging on technology, healthcare, and artificial intelligence (e.g. MaRS Discovery District, Techna and Vector Institutes, JLabs) and the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) Biobank. Funding is sufficient from institutional funds (UHN), federal grants (CIHR, NIH) and philanthropic innovation funds (PMCC Innovation Grant).
