Available Positions

We have two open positions for a master’s and a Ph.D. student, to join our multidisciplinary group in Fall 2023.

We are looking for creative and motivated RNA enthusiasts to study the travels and translation of chaperone mRNAs in primary neurons and their implication in neuronal functions and neurodegenerative diseases. Candidates should have a strong background in cell and molecular biology, biophysics, or neuroscience and have basic programming skills. They will become part of the Biochemistry Department, the RNA center, and the CRBS at McGill University.

Send your letter of interest to Maria Vera (maria.veraugalde@mcgill.ca) with your cv and the contact details of two references by February 15th.
