Assistant professor (Tenure Track), Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, and Molecular Imaging

McGill University

We seek candidates interested in pursuing a strong research program in any aspect of organismal, cellular and/or molecular biology using integrative structural approaches. Priority will be given to applicants with demonstrated excellence and a track record in combining several of the following technologies for 3D imaging: micro-computed tomography (micro-CT), correlative light-electron microscopy methods, cryo-focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy, cryo-electron tomography, single-particle cryo-electron microscopy, and cryo-atomic probe tomography.

The Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology is part of the newly created School of Biomedical Sciences (SBMS) within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (https://www.mcgill.ca/sbms/). In the context of SBMS, the successful candidate will share space and resources with other multidisciplinary teams in a highly collaborative environment. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a well-funded, independent research program that integrates with the research priorities of SBMS and with the faculty’s Strategic Research Plan (https://www.mcgill.ca/medhealthsci-research/about/strategic-research-plan). Implementation of multiscale 3D cryo-imaging of biological samples is an area of priority of the SBMS. McGill has heavily invested in this area through strategic hires and the necessary infrastructure to support cutting-edge research. Relevant platforms for this position are the Facility for Electron Microscopy Research (https://www.mcgill.ca/femr), the Integrated Quantitative Biology Initiative (https://www.mcgill.ca/iqbi/), and the Advanced Bioimaging Facility (https://www.mcgill.ca/abif).

Job Duties

The successful candidate will also contribute to the training mandates of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology and the SBMS at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The candidate will also be expected to be actively involved in all aspects of McGill's academic mission, including some administrative committees. A demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion is also expected.

Qualifications and Education Requirements

Applicants must have a Ph.D (or equivalent) degree in Cell Biology, Structural Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biophysics or related fields.

Postdoctoral training or comparable research experience is also a requirement. The candidate's research excellence will be demonstrated by publications in respected top-ranked journals, evidence of success in attracting competitive research funding (fellowships), and presentations at international scientific conferences. A history of successful collaborative work and teaching experience will be assets. We request three letters of reference from qualified referees in a relevant field of study.

The expected start date for this position is July 1st, 2023.
