A graduate studentship is available to study the mechanisms of cell divisions in mouse oocytes and embryos at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre (CRCHUM). Our lab uses live imaging approaches, along with genetic interventions and micromanipulation approaches to study the mechanisms of chromosome segregation in the oocyte and early mammalian embryo, in order to understand the cellular basis of fertility. The studentship would particularly suit someone with a strong background in cell/molecular/developmental biology, who has an interest in cell division and/or reproductive biology, and is available either for a masters or a PhD student. CRCHUM is a new state of the art research facility located in the heart of downtown Montreal, close to the Old Port.
