  • Nat Communications. 2018 Oct 19;9(1):4345. HSP90-incorporating chaperome networks as biosensor for disease-related pathways in patient-specific midbrain dopamine neurons.
  • Nature. 2016 Oct 20;538(7625):397-401. The epichaperome is an integrated chaperome network that facilitates tumour survival.
  • Nat Chem Biol. 2011 Sep 25;7(11):818-26; Affinity-based proteomics reveal cancer-specific networks coordinated by Hsp90.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have up to five years of postdoctoral experience with a demonstrated competence and experience in the biology of cancer. 
  • Have demonstrated ability to work independently and lead projects while also collaborating and assisting the group achieve its research goals

Candidates with an ability to interact well with a large interdisciplinary team are encouraged to apply.
Requirements:

  • A strong desire to impact human disease
