Candidates with experience or an interest in fragment screening, and drug optimisation using NMR/Xray and other techniques are encouraged to apply; but applicants with experience in protein production, molecular biology, medicinal chemistry or biochemical assays will also be considered. Interested parties should apply to [ bordenlabjobs "at" gmail.com ]. Informal inquiries can be made to [michael.osborne "at" umontreal.ca ]
The project is based on a unique clinical application of the anti-vriral drug, ribavirin, against a subset of cancer (AML) patients that the Borden lab discovered, and is currently undergoing phase II/III clinical trials. A novel, multi-drug resistance mechanism ( ACS Chem Biol. 2019, 14(3):348-355 ) was identified during these trials involving the UGT-family of enzymes ( Nature. 2014;511(7507):90-3), which have been targetted in pilot projects with success (J Mol Biol. 2019 Jan 18;431(2):258-272).

working on the projects, postdoctoral researchers will:
- Apply quantum mechanics, magnetism, and optical microscopy to emerging new fields.
- Learn nanofabrication techniques in world-class cleanrooms (CHTM, CINT).
- Collaborate with partners in academia (UCSF, Berkeley, etc.), nearby national labs (Los Alamos, Sandia), and industry (ODMR Technologies, NuevoMR, etc.).
project builds off of recent results from our lab (*denotes equal contribution):

Department of Chemistry at the University of British Columbia https://www.chem.ubc.ca/
is seeking outstanding new investigators for three full time tenure-track
faculty positions, at the rank of Assistant Professor at its Vancouver campus.
With over 60 faculty, over 240 graduate students and 60 dedicated staff members,
Chemistry is one of the worlds top Departments, boasting outstanding research infrastructure, well-equipped shops and services and an unparalleled location on Canadas beautiful west coast.
We are seeking candidates of exceptional scientific talent who have demonstrated success in their field for three positions:
Machine Learning in Chemistry
The positions require a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry or a related discipline and an outstanding research track record. Relevant postdoctoral experience is highly desirable. The successful candidate will develop and maintain an internationally recognized research program. As a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry, the successful applicant will be expected to effectively supervise graduate students, collaborate with other faculty members, obtain external funding, teach undergraduate and graduate Chemistry courses, and actively participate in departmental activities. Leading candidates will complement and strengthen the Department and Universitys expertise in research and education.
The successful candidate will be eligible to hold an appointment at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level but a higher rank may be considered for applicants with exceptional qualifications and experience.
The anticipated start date is July 1, 2020.
