Research recruitment

My research laboratory is currently in the process of recruiting Master's or PhD students wishing to start their studies on May 1, 2018. If you are interested in the metabolic bases of inflammation and have the skills to undertake one or more original research programs, please send me a letter of intent, a curriculum vitae and the most recent academic transcripts at sp.gravel@umontreal.ca. Candidates presenting the best scientific records and skills will be contacted and met individually during an interview. Candidates must demonstrate good command of the English language.
