The Department of Biology seeks applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Cell Biology. The successful applicant will be nominated by the University of Victoria for a Tier 2 CRC and, upon approval of the Chair by the CRC Secretariat, will be offered a tenure-track appointment at the appropriate rank. We are a diverse department that fosters a collegial and collaborative environment. Candidates who share this vision and can build tangible links to our department’s strengths in developmental biology, cellular neuroscience and/or evolutionary biology/genetics are especially encouraged to apply. The successful nominee will have a PhD and/or postdoctoral training in cell biology. They will have demonstrated potential to develop an externally funded, independent and original research program that focuses on mechanisms of cell function. Candidates whose research has a component relating to human health are preferred.
Candidates will be evaluated against criteria set by the CRC program (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx#s7).
