Interested in joining our team?
We are looking for motivated, curious, and enthusiastic postdoctoral scientists, graduate students, and undergrads. Please read the sections below that detail what information to submit to Lawrence Kazak when you apply.
Postdoctoral positions are available for enthusiastic and driven scientists. If you are interested in a post-doc position please send an email (email@example.com) with a cover letter describing your past research, your future goals and why you would like to join the Kazak lab. Please include your CV and the names, emails and phone numbers of three references.
Strong training in the following areas are a BIG plus: biochemistry, mass spectrometry, mitochondrial bioenergetics, metabolism, or mouse physiology. Candidates with a strong background in computational biology looking to gain experience in molecular metabolism are encouraged to apply.
Candidates should be highly motivated and have a strong research history as indicated by publications in high quality international journals. Candidates must be motivated to acquire fellowships to support your work at McGill.
If you are a McGill student looking for a lab, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your future goals and why you would like to join the Kazak lab. We always have room for motivated and enthusiastic grad students!
If you are looking for a graduate student position in the our lab and are not currently at McGill, you will need to apply to the Biochemistry Department
The lab uses a wide variety of molecular biology and biochemical approaches in cultured mammalian cells as well as methods to study physiology in genetically engineered mice. Commonly used techniques include: molecular cloning, mass spectrometry (metabolomics and proteomics), respirometry (mitochondrial and cellular bioenergetics), RNA interference, Western blotting, quantitative RT-PCR, and fluorescent microscopy. In addition, physiological approaches are used such as in vivo metabolic phenotyping (indirect calorimetry, glucose homeostasis, high fat feeding, thermogenesis, body composition).
If you are currently a McGill University undergraduate student who is keen to pursue graduate studies in the future, email me (email@example.com). We are happy to have enthusiastic undergrads join our team!
