Positions for two graduate students (M.Sc. or Ph.D) are available in the lab of Dr. Wenbin Liang (Assistant Professor, CMM, uOttawa).
Dr. Liang’s research is focused on mechanistic studies of heart disease, and is funded by CIHR and Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. Dr. Liang’s group uses human cardiomyocytes (isolated from patient biopsy samples; or derived from iPSCs generated with patient cells), CRISPR/Cas9 (for genome engineering and disease modeling), and patch-clamp and optical mapping (for studies of cellular and tissue electrical activities), as well as routine techniques in biochemistry and cell biology.
Highly-motivated candidates are encouraged to email a cover letter and updated CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants with prior experience in stem cell and other related research are preferred.
