Associate professor in Microbiota-Host Interactions: Canada
UQAM is looking for qualified candidates to renew its faculty and ensure quality development in all areas of activity. UQAM ranks 1st in Quebec and 3rd in Canada in terms of research funding in the category of comprehensive universities. Located in downtown Montreal, its Faculty of Sciences is steadily growing, currently including 13 research centers and 25 research chairs as well as more than 4,000 students.
In accordance with its development plan, the Department of Biological Sciences now wishes to enrich its expertise in microbiome and omics-based analyses with a new professor position specializing in microbiota-host interactions in a human health and/or animal biology context. We are looking for candidates whose expertise will complement or support the broad research interests of the Centre d’Excellence en Recherche sur les Maladies Orphelines – Fondation Courtois (CERMO-FC). Investigators from this multi-departmental interdisciplinary research center use various animal models to study the mechanisms of numerous diseases at the physiological, cellular, molecular and/or biochemical levels. These researchers also benefit from the support of 6 cutting-edge research core facilities.
