The Baetz lab is seeking a postdoctoral fellow and PhD student

The Baetz lab is looking for highly motivated and creative researchers to join our team.  The focus of the work will be understanding how cellular metabolism is remodelled through lysine acetylation upon various stresses.  In this study yeast functional genomics along with high throughput microscopy will be exploited to identify novel pathways regulated by the highly conserved lysine acetyltransferase NuA4.  Once characterized in yeast, you will seek to determine if the same events are regulated by Tip60 in mammalian cells. This is a great opportunity to learn yeast systems biology and "connect the unconnected".

If you are interested in this opportunity, send your CV, along with contact information for three references to  Only qualified candidates will be contacted.  We are a member of the Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology at the University of Ottawa, in Ottawa, Canada.
