We are currently looking for PhD students and independently funded PDFs. Experience in cellular and molecular methods and an interest in fish metabolism and aquatic toxicology are an asset. Please send specific inquires and proposed areas of research to Dr. Jan Mennigen at email@example.com. We are also looking to fill one last position in a collaborative Honour's project to quantify microRNAs in tissues from a rat hypertension model. This project will remain available until a suitable candidate has been found.
02/18: Dan Kostyniuk is awarded a Mitacs Globalink grant and will conduct part of his MSc. research at INRA, France. Congratulations Dan!
01/18: The Mennigen lab attended the 27th Annual Rice Lake Workshop in Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry, which we co-hosted with the Standen lab. Congratulations on excellent talk and poster presentations Zeinab, Dan, Majd, Adina, Mais and Rida.
12/17: Dr. Lucie Marandel will join the lab as visiting researcher under the European Marie Curie Agreen Skills Plus program. We are excited to collaborate on epigenetic determinants of metabolism in the rainbow trout model.
12/17: PhD student Reem Alharti will join the lab to study developmental and transgenerational consequences of aquatic contaminant exposure on zebrafish metabolism. Welcome Reem!
11/17: Volunteers Tess Julian and Georges Coté as well as UROP student Manuela Fonseca have joined our group. Welcome!
04/17: Dan Kostyniuk (co-supervised with Dr. Gilmour) wins the John Armstrong Biology Honour's thesis award. Well done, Dan!
