Canada Research Chair Tier 2 in Computational Cell Biology

  • Location: University of British Columbia in Vancouver
  • Michael Smith Laboratories in the Faculty of Science
  • Expected start date is July 1, 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter
  • Application Deadline: November 23, 2023

The Michael Smith Laboratories (MSL) is a dynamic hub for ground breaking research and education excellence. This is a broad search for candidates in the area of Computational Cell Biology. The successful candidates will be expected to lead an independent computational-based research program focused on developing and applying innovative approaches for single-cell data analysis. We are defining “single-cell analysis” as broadly encompassing a range of modalities such as cell-level genomics, proteomics or imaging, in any application area(s) ranging from molecular mechanisms of cell development and differentiation, cell-centered pathophysiology to the modeling and engineering of in vitro cell systems. We seek candidates who can contribute to collaborative and transformative research projects with other scientists and engineers within the MSL as well as the broader campus using cutting edge quantitative methods. The candidate will be expected to contribute excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching in appropriate partner departments, effectively supervise graduate students, provide service within the MSL and the University, and be prepared to integrate their expertise with other innovative researchers at the University’s Vancouver and Okanagan campuses. Please refer to the attached posting for full information.
