Associate or Full Professor and Canada Research Chair Tier I in Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease

College of Biological Science - University of GuelphThe Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB), in the College of Biological Science (CBS) at the University of Guelph (U of G) invites outstanding applications for a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair (CRC) opportunity in Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease. The appointment will be a full-time tenured position normally at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. The CRC Tier 1 program is one of Canada’s most prestigious Research Chair programs, and this position will be funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), whose mission is to support the discoveries and innovations that improve our health and strengthen our health care system, consistent with the U of G mission “To Improve Life”. The program is designed to attract leading scientists and scholars. A CRC Tier I Chair is awarded for a seven-year term and can be renewed once. For more details, visit the CRC program.

The proposed CRC Tier I (CIHR) in Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease will be a position of strategic importance to the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, the College of Biological Science and the University of Guelph. Intersecting with important research themes in the University’s Strategic Research Plan, including fundamental science and its application and animal and human health and wellbeing, this position will also advance the rapidly growing program in One Health at U of G. The proposed CRC will be open to researchers studying any prokaryotic or eukaryotic system, and research in infectious diseases, cancer or neurological disorders represent priority areas. This position will thus enhance existing excellence at the University of Guelph in the realm of cellular/molecular basis of disease and connect multiple departments and colleges, which are home to research programs spanning cardiac and kidney disease, tumour progression, neurological pathologies, nutrition, microbial communities and antimicrobial resistance, and intersect with programs in translational disease research. New knowledge arising from these programs is already leading to the development of novel approaches to combat disease, and the proposed CRC will be critical to continue the forward momentum in this regard.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic, multidisciplinary, research-intensive department with 44 faculty members who study diverse biological systems at levels from molecules to cells. The Department is the home of undergraduate programs in Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular Biology & Genetics, Neuroscience, and contributes to programs in Biological Science, Biomedical Science, and Plant Science. Graduate training activities include programs offering M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Molecular and Cellular Biology, and a Master of Biotechnology degree. Faculty members also participate in cross-department programs, including Bioinformatics, Biophysics, Neuroscience, Plant Science, and Toxicology. The successful applicant will be expected to develop a creative and independent research program, sustained by external funding from national/provincial agencies, and contribute to undergraduate and graduate training.
The CRC holder must be an outstanding and innovative world-class researcher whose accomplishments have made a major impact in their field; be recognized internationally as leaders in their field; have a proven track record of sustained extramurally funded cutting-edge research; and a superior record of attracting and supervising graduate students and postdoctoral fellows (taking into account different practices in the relevant field or discipline). As a chairholder, the successful candidate will be expected to develop an original, innovative research program of the highest quality; attract CIHR and other Tri-Agency funding; take leadership on large, competitive, collaborative grants; develop and retain excellent trainees; contribute to innovative and effective knowledge translation and transfer activities in collaboration with collegiate and institutional research offices, and be a prominent leader in CBS and at the U of G.

The College of Biological Science and the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology value equity, diversity, and inclusion, based on the principles that every person has a right to equal treatment and that we are strengthened by diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. The Department aims to foster a diverse and inclusive environment by continuous and active engagement of all department members and to remove barriers faced by equity-seeking groups. The Department prioritizes the creation, support and maintenance of a learning, research, and work environment that is free from discriminatory and intimidating behaviour. The CRC holder is expected to have a strong track record of mentorship in equitable and inclusive research environments. The Chair is expected to establish a diverse research team and create an inclusive environment that enables all members to reach their full research potential. The CRC holder should also have a track record of providing opportunities for equity-deserving groups.

While this is a research-intensive appointment, the successful candidate is expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate education in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology (however, a reduced teaching assignment will be in place during the 7-year term of the Chair and the potential renewal).
Outstanding researchers and scholars who are international leaders in their field are invited to apply. Candidates must be full professors or associate professors that are expected to be promoted to full professor within one or two years of the nomination. Alternatively, if they come from outside the academic sector, candidates must possess the qualifications necessary to be appointed at these levels. Candidates must be from one or more of the following equity-seeking groups to apply: women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, and racialized groups. Salary is negotiable and commensurate with experience and qualifications. Positions are subject to review and final approval by the CRC Secretariat. Review of applications and nominations will begin on May 31st, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.

Please consult the CRC program for full program information, including details on eligibility.
