Dr. Julien’s laboratory at The Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute is looking for a Research/Post-Doctoral Fellow to join our Structural Biology team. The successful candidate will participate in the characterization of a malaria antigen and antibodies against it by using a combination of biochemical, biophysical, immunological and structural techniques. We are looking for a driven and enthusiastic scientist who demonstrates passion and creativity towards the structure/function study of important pathogenic targets and who can thrive in a highly-collaborative setting.
Roles & Responsibilities
Desired Skills and Experience
Dr. Julien's laboratory is interested in the structure/function study of B cell receptors and their interactions with antigens. A better understanding of the structures of B cell surface molecules will serve towards the rational design of improved vaccine immunogens against a variety of pathogens, including malaria and HIV-1. Dr. Julien’s laboratory is located in The Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning, a new 21-story, 750,000 square-foot facility that incorporates an open-concept design, state-of-the-art research facilities, and collaborative work spaces.
As a member of the SickKids community, you will become part of a world-renowned organization dedicated to fulfilling a vision of Healthier Children, A Better World. For over 135 years, SickKids has worked hard to make the world a better place for children and their families. SickKids researchers have developed Pablum, discovered the gene for cystic fibrosis and are on the leading edge of research in a wide range of disciplines. Each day, people around the organization are doing meaningful work that directly, and often indirectly, benefits children in Canada and around the world.
