In the Hood Lab we are strong believers in the training of "highly qualified personnel" at all levels of education. At the undergraduate level, we usually take on one or two Summer NSERC or CIHR students each year, and we make use of many student volunteers throughout the school year who help us around the lab, and who become familiar with a laboratory setting. We take MSc students every year, and PhD students when they are well qualified and prepared for a longer term commitment (not usually less than 5 years). The Hood Lab welcomes applications for motivated and responsible trainees at any time.

post-doctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. David Hood within the MHRC at York University. The position is available immediately and should be filled by Sept 1, 2018. The research involves the study of mitochondrial turnover (biogenesis and mitophagy) in skeletal muscle and heart, with age and exercise.  Animal models and cell culture methods are used predominantly. The candidate should have an understanding of exercise physiology and muscle metabolism. Molecular biology skills would be a definite asset.
If interested, please send a brief letter of interest and an updated CV directly to Dr. Hood at dhood@Yorku.ca.
