Lab Openings

Join us

Ongoing recruitment for promising graduate students, post-doctoral, PhD, and staff candidates interested in collaborative research projects related to our lipidomic discovery, target, diagnostic, and therapeutics foci. Opportunities are also available to focus exclusively on our pharmaceutical contract research organization projects. Preferred candidates will have a biochemistry, neuroscience, analytical chemistry, bionalytical chemistry, computer science, or bioinformatics background with demonstrated experience in lipidomics and/or metabolomics in brain and/or computational biology, bioinformatics, and machine learning.

Research Staff

All staff positions are currently filled.

Please check back regularly for new recruitment updates.

Post-doctoral Fellows

We are actively recruiting post-doctoral researchers and research associates interested in collaborative research projects related to our lipidomic discovery, diagnostics, and therapeutics foci. We are seeking both wet-bench and dry-bench colleagues interested in exploring use of lipidomic and model system approaches to combat neurodegenerative disease. Positions are also available for bioinformatic and computer science graduates to develop and expand our data analysis pipelines. These research positions will also include a variety of responsibilities related to the operation of the India Taylor Lipidomic Research Platform. Candidates with bioanalytical chemistry and/or bioinformatic/computer science experience in developing applications for lipid and/or metabolomic analysis using LC-ESI-MS/MS will be preferred. These positions will involve direct interaction with collaborators, including clinicians from the Ottawa Hospital and other institutions. Researchers will be involved in grant and manuscript writing. Demonstrated LC-ESI-MS experience and/or bioinformatic expertise is essential and required.
