Graduate student positions
Vacancies for PhD and/or MSc positions in molecular parasitology
Positions are available immediately to study mechanisms of signal transduction in the parasitic worm, Schistosoma mansoni, and the model nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans. Projects include an investigation of neurotransmitter G protein -coupled receptors (GPCR), using a combination of functional genomics and proteomics. Applicants must have strong undergraduate training in molecular biology or biochemistry. For enquiries, please contact Dr. Paula Ribeiro, Institute of Parasitology, McGill University.
