The Werbowetski-Ogilvie lab is seeking highly motivated and ambitious individuals to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms contributing to stem cell function, metastasis and heterogeneity in the different subtypes of medulloblastoma, the most common malignant primary pediatric brain tumor.
Candidates who currently hold a MSc with training in human cell culture, molecular biology techniques, flow cytometry and stem cell biology are particularly encouraged to apply. Please email Dr. Tamra Werbowetski-Ogilvie (Tamra.Ogilvie@umanitoba.ca) directly with a brief introduction, the names and contact information of 3 references, current CV, and transcripts attached.

Dr. Tamra Werbowetski-Ogilvie received her HSBc of Science in Biology at the University of Western Ontario in 2000. She completed her PhD in the Department of Neurology & Neurosurgery, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University in 2005. Dr. Werbowetski-Ogilvie completed her postdoctoral training at McMaster University in 2010. She joined the University of Manitoba as a Principal Investigat...or in the Department of Biochemistry & Medical Genetics and the Regenerative Medicine Program in November, 2010. Dr. Werbowetski-Ogilvie currently holds a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Neuro-Oncology and Human Stem Cells. The laboratory specializes in the characterization of cellular functions involved in how medulloblastomas arise and progress, with a focus on the processes that are common between normal stem cells and medulloblastoma cells.
