Postdoctoral Fellow identifying exosomal biomarkers in Multiple Sclerosis – Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our team at the Montreal Neurological Institute (McGill University, Montreal, Canada). The postdoc will be under the primary supervision of Prof. Alyson Fournier and will collaborate with Dr. Jack Antel’s group and other members of the neuroimmunological diseases group (https://www.mcgill.ca/neuro/people/field_mprofile_research_areas/neuroimmunological_diseases). The project includes the analysis of protein and RNA content of exosomes derived from neurons and oligodendrocytes from human iPSC-derived neurons and oligodendrocytes and from human patient plasma samples. The aims of the project are to identify markers of neuronal and oligodendrocyte damage and repair as diagnostic and prognostic tools in Multiple Sclerosis.

Interested candidates should have a solid background and publications in molecular and biochemical neuroscience techniques with an interest in neuroimmunology and neurological disease. Experience in basic bioinformatics assessments would be an asset. Interested persons should send their CV and two reference contacts.
