Job postings

Postdoctoral Fellow in Metabolism

Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI; affiliated with the University of Toronto) has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Marc Jeschke, a senior scientist in Biological Sciences at SRI and director of the Ross Tilley Burn Centre (RTBC). The RTBC is the largest burn centre in Canada. Dr. Jeschke is a professor in U of T’s department of surgery, divisions of plastic and general surgery; department of Immunology and Institute of Medical Sciences.

Our laboratory focuses on translational research to attenuate trauma-induced stress, hypermetabolism, and inflammation. We have recently shown that the adipose tissue and its ensuing browning plays a major role in hypermetabolism, which is associated with substantial adverse clinical outcomes for years. The goals of our research are to develop novel treatments and interventions to attenuate the browning response and potentially to implement novel clinical treatments.

The ideal incumbent is an enthusiastic, highly motivated and organized individual with interpersonal skills who will enjoy collaborating and conducting research in a stimulating environment. The successful candidate will be part of a team conducting independent research to study the effects of burn on the adipose tissue and adipose-associated mediators. The results from the studies could lead to the development of novel therapies to improve clinical outcomes of severely burned patients.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Regenerative Medicine

Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI; affiliated with the University of Toronto) has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Marc Jeschke, a senior scientist in Biological Sciences at SRI and director of the Ross Tilley Burn Centre (RTBC). The RTBC is the largest burn centre in Canada. Dr. Jeschke is a professor in U of T’s department of surgery, divisions of plastic and general surgery; department of Immunology and Institute of Medical Sciences.

The desired incumbent is an enthusiastic, highly motivated and organized individual with exceptional interpersonal skills who will enjoy collaborating and conducting research in a stimulating environment. The candidate will conduct research in the area of regenerative medicine, which encompasses stem cell biology, 3D skin printing, biology of wound healing and scarring. We recently made major strides in these areas and hope to have novel therapeutic approaches that can be implemented into the clinic. The advantage of this area of study is the direct clinical implication of the research; once mechanisms are discovered, an intervention will be tested and a clinical trial will soon follow.
