Post-Doctoral Fellow – Pancreatic Cancer

The Notta laboratory is located at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (Toronto, Canada) and is associated with the Medical Biophysics program at the University of Toronto. Our research program is focused on pancreatic cancer, one of the most aggressive tumor types in oncology. Broadly, our laboratory is interested in several aspects of the disease such as its cellular origins, mechanisms of drug resistance, and tumor evolution. Our laboratory is also part of the Pancreatic Cancer Translational Initiative (PanCuRx) at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research. The PanCuRx Program is a translational research initiative that aims to significantly improve the lives of patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma by generating new knowledge about genetic and biological subsets of disease, mechanisms of tumorigenesis, and unique treatment options. Our laboratory is split between wet and dry components. On the wet-lab side, our work focuses on patient-derived organoids, CRISPR, xenografting, molecular profiling, genomics, and drug screening. On the dry lab side, we perform molecular subtyping of RNA-seq data (both bulk and single-cell), whole genome sequencing (both bulk and single-cell), statistical analysis of large datasets, data integration, tumor evolution analysis, and genomic workflows for patients on clinical trials.

Projects in our lab vary widely but typically involve investigating mechanisms of pancreatic cancer development. We encourage trainees to bring their own ideas and expertise to address new problems. Trainees with a wet lab or computational background are welcome to apply. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D., MD, or both. Candidates who are close to finishing their PhDs but have not published are also encouraged to apply. All candidates should have a manuscript in preparation or have been published at the time of the application. No experience in pancreatic cancer is necessary.


  • Recently graduated from Ph.D. or MD program
  • Publication(s) and manuscript(s) in preparation or completed.
  • Excellent organizational and analytical skills, along with a high degree of independence and flexibility to thrive in a novel and rapidly evolving research environment.
  • Ability to write scientific communications and present their work
  • Excellent initiative and leadership qualities
