Description of position

Please note that this position is outside the IDIGH Program, but at the same institution. Dr. Salman Qureshi is a collaborator of the IDIGH Program. 

We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to join the laboratory of Dr. Salman Qureshi at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, a research institute affiliated with the McGill University.  The CIHR-funded research project aims to advance knowledge of fungal disease pathogenesis through systematic analysis of cells, molecular pathways, and genes in a clinically relevant mouse model of Cryptococcus neoformans (C. neoformans) infection.  The fundamental insights arising from these studies will pave the way for improved management of invasive fungal disease.
