Research laboratory of Prof. Cheryl Arrowsmith is seeking a Scientific Associate (permanent full time position) or Postdoctoral Fellow (temporary appointment) whose primary responsibility will be providing support to our NMR group.

The Arrowsmith research laboratory and the Structural Proteomics in Toronto (SPiT) group, located at the TDMT and Max Bell Research Center - a part of the University Health Network -affiliated with the University of Toronto, is one of the leading centres for genome-scale protein science in cancer structural biology. With support in place from the provincial and federal governments, U.S. National Institutes of Health and the private sector, we are currently expanding our research team in the area of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance.

The laboratory uses state- of- the-art NMR instrumentation: Bruker 800, 600 and 500 MHZ, all equipped with cryoprobes. We also have regular user time on Varian 600 and 500 MHz spectrometers. Specialized and qualified expertise is required for maintaining and running the instruments as well as training other members of the group. The service component of the position is estimated at 50% of the time. The successful candidate should have a strong background in biomolecular NMR and is expected to pursue independent research projects as a member of the structural proteomics team. Additional responsibilities may include the management of fee-for-service projects and academic collaborations.

The ideal candidate will be a team player, able to learn and adapt quickly and have excellent interpersonal and communication skills. He/she will be detail-oriented, self-organized, motivated, and energetic.
