Director, Manitoba Centre for Proteomics and Systems Biology
DEPARTMENT OF INTERNAL MEDICINE
MAX RADY COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
POSITION NUMBER: 29855
The Department of Internal Medicine is recruiting for the position of Director of the Manitoba Centre for Proteomics and Systems Biology. The individual will hold a PhD or MD/PhD and will be recruited as a probationary or tenured Associate or Full Professor, commencing September 1, 2021, or on a date mutually agreed upon. The successful candidate will play a key leadership role in developing and advancing the core and research activities of the Centre and, as such, needs to have demonstrated expertise in high content analytical approaches for the examination of biomedical systems. The Director will serve as the primary administrative link between the Centre and the Department of Internal Medicine, the Faculty, and the scientific community at large. Although direct supervision of students and other trainees is the responsibility of the individual Principal Investigators within the Centre, the Centre Director is expected to provide mentorship for a wide array of trainees in scientific methodology and best practices. Ideally, the candidate’s own research program would be competitive for national funding, and would encompass systems-based analysis employing computational and experimental approaches that are relevant to human systems and diseases. Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
The Manitoba Centre for Proteomics and Systems Biology is a state-of-the-art research facility with high content analytical capabilities in mass spectrometry and single cell transcriptomics in conjunction with other advanced “omics’ resources at the University of Manitoba. The Centre membership consists of basic and clinician scientists offering an exceptional collaborative environment for the development and translation of new approaches to the study of human disease. The Department of Internal Medicine offers a unique environment for collaborative research with clinical investigators who have established outstanding disease specific databases and biobanks associated with their clinical programs. There is also the opportunity for collaborations with the basic science departments in the faculty. Applicants should submit a single pdf document by email that includes a letter of application explaining their interest in the position, a curriculum vitae, 1-2 page overview of a vision and plan for the applicant’s research and the research of the program of the Centre, a teaching statement that documents their experience in and/or approach to training and mentoring diverse students and faculty, teaching philosophy, and an equity, diversity, inclusion (EDI) statement describing their strengths and/or experiences and plan for increasing EDI in their institutional environment.
The University of Manitoba is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from women, racialized persons, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, persons of all sexual and gender identities, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
