Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in Computational Behavioural Neuroscience, University of Calgary

The Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Calgary invites applications for a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier II in Computational Behavioural Neuroscience. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (Tenure-track) in the Department of Psychology. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2021.

The Chair will establish and maintain an active and externally funded research program. The Chair will be expected to undertake research that investigates the neural control of behavior in model systems, and use computational techniques as an integral component of their data collection and/or analysis. Candidates with research programs directed toward understanding the mechanisms of experience-dependent plasticity of neural circuits underlying behavior are of particular interest. The Chair’s research program will be aligned with both the University of Calgary’s and the Faculty of Arts’ strategic plans. Additionally, the Chair will play an important role in teaching and research supervision of students in Psychology undergraduate and graduate programs. Service to the department, faculty, and University, is also expected, particularly in helping to build a diverse and inclusive community.

The University of Calgary requires that the successful candidate will have a PhD in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field. The candidate will also have at least 2 years of post-doctoral experience. Tier II Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars who have been active researchers in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination. Candidates who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree and who have had career breaks, such as maternity, parental, or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc., may have their eligibility for a Tier II Chair assessed through the program’s Tier II justification process. Please contact UCalgary’s Office of Research Services for more information: ipd@ucalgary.ca. Further information about the Canada Research Chairs Program can be found on the Government of Canada’s CRC website (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/home-accueil-eng.aspx), including eligibility criteria.

The successful candidate must display evidence of excellence in both research and teaching. Candidates may demonstrate research excellence through peer-reviewed publications, a strong record of research productivity and the potential for obtaining external research funding. Evidence of excellence in teaching can be demonstrated via: a statement of teaching philosophy, sample course outlines, and/or a record of undergraduate or graduate teaching, student supervision, or mentorship.

The Chair will have the opportunity to be part of a prolific and diverse research environment in the Department of Psychology, and contribute to the University of Calgary’s Brain and Mental Heath strategy that includes the Hotchkiss Brain Institute and the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute. Computational Neuroscience is a top priority within the Brain and Mental Health strategy, and the Chair will be a key contributor to this initiative. The Chair will have access to state of the art core infrastructure. If nomination for CRC Tier II is successful, the incumbent will be offered a 75% reduction in teaching for the duration of the Chair appointment.

Two full-time tenure stream appointments in Neuroscience, University of Toronto Scarborough

The Department of Biological Sciences, University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) invites applications for two full-time tenure stream appointments in Neuroscience. Both appointments are at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an expected start date of July 1, 2021, or shortly thereafter.

Context & Qualifications

The University of Toronto Scarborough is implementing a new Strategic Plan: Inspiring Inclusive Excellence. Consistent with the values and objectives in that plan, we especially welcome candidates who self-identify as Indigenous or those who have lived experience in Black or other racialized (persons of colour) communities.

This position is part of a cohort of similar faculty searches in Historical and Cultural Studies, the Centre for Critical Development Studies, Political Science, and Psychology. New colleagues will have the opportunity to be connected with previous cohorts of faculty from under-represented groups, including those hired last year in four departments spanning the Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities.

Applicants must have a PhD in Biological Sciences, Neuroscience, or a related field, at least one year of postdoctoral research experience, an outstanding research record, and a demonstrated strong commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The successful candidates must employ the latest approaches to understand brain function on multiple levels ranging from the genomic and cellular to circuits and entire organisms. We are particularly interested in candidates who will create synergies with existing neuroscience research at UTSC, in areas such as motor control, learning and motivation, synaptic plasticity, sensory neurobiology, neurodegeneration, neuro-epigenetics, and the neurobiology of stress. The candidate must complement and deepen our existing departmental strengths. Research areas of interest must include one or more of the following:

  • translational neuroscience focused on understanding the molecular or systems level mechanisms underlying brain diseases
  • neuroimmunology e.g. microglia, immune responses in healthy and diseased brain
  • tool development for imaging or manipulating brain function
  • neurobiology of memory, sensory or motor systems
  • computational neuroscience
  • vertebrate and invertebrate models

The successful candidates will be expected to conduct innovative and independent research at the highest international level and to establish outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research programs. Applicants must have a record of excellence in research, as demonstrated by publications in top ranked and field-relevant academic journals, presentations at significant conference, awards and accolades for work in the field, an innovative research statement and strong endorsements by referees of high international standing.

The successful candidates will also have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level. A commitment to excellence in teaching will be demonstrated through the teaching dossier including a statement of teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations or other evidence of superior performance in teaching-related activities documented in the submitted teaching materials, as well as strong letters of reference. Other teaching-related activities may include performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or conference posters or presentations. The successful candidates must also show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and the promotion of a respectful and collegial learning and working environment, demonstrated through the application materials.

Salaries will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Further information on the research and teaching activities of the department can be found at http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~biosci/.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in biological research and education and the Department of Biological Sciences enjoys strong ties to other units within the University. The successful candidates will be cross appointed to the Graduate Department of Cell and Systems Biology at the University of Toronto (http://csb.utoronto.ca/), and are expected to maintain an active research program centered at the University of Toronto Scarborough, and to foster and facilitate inclusivity while working in one of Canada’s most diverse institutions. At UTSC, the new faculty members will have access to several research facilities including state of the art molecular, cellular, neuroscience, and imaging tools in the Centre for the Neurobiology of Stress (https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/cns/) and the outstanding chemistry analytical capacity offered by the TRACES Lab (Teaching and Research in Analytical Chemical and Environmental Science – http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~traceslab/).
