Alberta Innovates Tier-3 Chair in Bioinformatics : Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The University of Calgary is a top-ten Canadian research-intensive institution with a commitment to interdisciplinary experiential learning.
Calgary, Alberta is the energy capital of Canada and is known for its entrepreneurial can-do spirit. The successful candidate will find an ambitious and forward-looking research environment only a little more than an hour’s drive from the Canadian Rockies.
The ideal candidate will have a systems mindset and significant accomplishments commensurate with career stage. We are seeking outstanding candidates who would compete for exceptional support from Alberta Innovates and potentially from the Canada Research Chairs program
The Alberta Innovates Academy is a unique body of some forty research Chairs, Professors and Scholars who are working at the forefront of science, engineering and medicine.
The position corresponds to a very promising Assistant or Associate Professor. Appointment will be contingent upon a successful application for 5-year AI funding. Exceptional candidates may also be supported in an application to the CRC program.
These funding sources will provide exceptional early- to mid-career support. Cross-appointment in appropriate Departments in both Faculties is expected.
We will accept applications in bioinformatics, defined broadly, with preference for candidates with proven research excellence related to genetic regulatory networks.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work within an emerging Alberta genomics initiative, and help to build bioinformatics capacity in the Province, with the potential for additional recruits in bioinformatics and genetics through other sources within the institution that would complement this initiative.
Work at the nexus of theory/computation and experiment will be viewed favorably.
