Montreal, September 13, 2021

Postdoctoral positions

Postdoctoral research scholar positions are available in the laboratory of Guillaume Lettre at the Université de Montréal and the Montreal Heart Institute. In particular, we are seeking postdocs with expertise in computational biology, bioinformatics and/or human genetics to work with a stellar team of international investigators on the post-GWAS variant-to-gene-to-function challenge. The project, involving the analysis of vast amount of omics data, will take advantage of the recently launched and NHGRI-funded IGVF Consortium (https://bit.ly/2YK6c7i). This is a fantastic opportunity to broaden your computational skills and research network.

Research in our laboratory (http://www.mhi-humangenetics.org) is broadly focused on human cardiovascular and hematological disease genetics, and includes both human genetic and functional genomic approaches. Our lab is composed of a talented group of wet-lab scientists and computational biologists.

To apply, please send a cover letter summarizing your research interests and expertise, as well as your CV (guillaume.lettre [at] umontreal.ca).

Our lab is composed of a talented group of wet-lab scientists and computational biologists.

We are seeking postdocs interested in developing new projects that are aligned with the lab’s interests. In particular, candidates interested in developing projects that take advantage of existing genetic data (e.g. GWAS, WGS) to design single-cell perturbation experiments (e.g. CRISPR/Cas9, base editing) are strongly encourage to apply.

To apply, please send me a cover letter summarizing your research interests and expertise, as well as your CV (guillaume.lettre [at] umontreal.ca).
