Graduate positions

New students can join the lab via the Anatomy and Cell Biology graduate program.

Prospective students should send their C.V. along with 2-3 references to vdumeaux@uwo.ca. Please ensure that you describe your previous training, research experience or other items you deem relevant to the position.

Possible research topics include:

  • Identifying signatures to predict treatment response in breast cancer
  • Single-cell genomics of immune responses to cancer
  • Microbial single-cell transcriptomics

Applicants with a background and/or prior experience in bioinformatics, data science, microbiology or immunology will be preferred. Unfortunately we cannot respond to all emails.

Posgraduate positions

Postdoctoral position in epigenomics

My collaborators and I have a posdoctoral position open related to a project in sperm epigenomics and paternally-driven birth defects. The project is led by a multidisciplinary team comprised of Dr Sarak Kimmins and clinical collaborators in Toronto (Create Fertility Clinic), providing an excellent training environment. This is a CIHR funded project and involves the analysis of transcriptomic and epigenomic profiles of sperm cells and matched embryos. Additionally, there are opportunities to work on projects that bridge academia and biotech industry - the PIs will work with the post-doc to develop a plan that meets the individual’s career goals.

Ideal candidates will have:

  • Ph.D. in biostatistics, computational biology, data science, epidemiology, or related disciplines
  • expertise in manipulation, analysis, and visualization of high-throughput genomics data
  • programming experience using R and/or Python. Duration: 1 year (but with potential for longer) Salary: 60K / year + benefits Location: Canada (London, Ontario)

Please send your application to vdumeaux@uwo.ca. Applications will be reviewed continuously until the position is filled. Unfortunately we cannot respond to all emails.
