Available Positions

Join a dynamic, world-class, generously funded basic and translational science team. The laboratory of Dr. Michael Levin offers personalized mentorship, state of the art laboratory facilities, customized coursework, highly competitive compensation, and the opportunity for basic scientists to work hand-in-hand with clinicians in Saskatoon City Hospital and the University of Saskatchewan.

The laboratory of Dr. Michael Levin in the Department of Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology at the University of Saskatchewan has positions currently available for Master’s and PhD students to study the role of abnormalities in the immune and nervous systems and how these abnormalities contribute to the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). The laboratory is located in Saskatoon City Hospital, as part of the Cameco MS Neuroscience Research Centre. For more information about the lab and Dr. Levin, please visit Dr. Levin's research page

Featured Team Members

Kaitland Fior, Undergraduate Student

Kaitland is an undergraduate student who has worked two summers in the Levin Lab and is now completing her honour's project with us.  She has received two College of Medicine Biomedical Summer Project Awards, an NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award and won the 2nd place poster award at the 2022 Undergraduate Research Showcase for her research project titled, "Elucidating Novel Mechanisms of A1 Antibody Mediated Neurodegeneration in Models of Multiple Sclerosis."  


Todd Stang, Master's Student

Todd is a graduate student who has received multiple scholarships including a CoMGRAD Award, Dean's Scholarship, and a Canada Graduate Scholarship - Master's for his work on studying nuclear pore complex function in neurons. The nuclear pore complex is involved in many basic biological functions and is a critical structure of neurons. Using cutting-edge technology, Todd is learning many new research techniques, collaborating with others, and conducting his own research experiments. Todd is currently investigating changes in the nuclear pore complex due to hnRNP A1 dysfunction and inflammation associated with MS and relevant MS models. 

Dr. Cole Libner, PhD

Cole defended his PhD dissertation titled, "Novel Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration in Multiple Sclerosis Models" in August, 2022 and is currently pursuing his MD at the University of Saskatchewan.  As a graduate student, Cole was awarded the prestigious CIHR Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarship and plans to pursue a career as a clinician-scientist.
