*Assistant Professor* *Tenure Track position*
*Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology *
The Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology at McGill University (
http://www.mcgill.ca/anatomy) invites applications for an *Assistant
Professor* tenure-track faculty position. We seek candidates with an
established track record in structural biology and an interest in
developing new computational methods for image processing, structure
interpretation and integration tools for combining data from single
particle cryo-electron microscopy, tomography and correlative
light-electron microscopy (CLEM). Applicants with backgrounds in computer
science, mathematics or physics, and experience implementing new ideas and
mathematical methods into new image processing tools are strongly
encouraged to apply.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences, Computer Science,
Mathematics or Physics with extensive postdoctoral experience in protein
structural biology, cell biology and/or experience implementing new ideas
and mathematical methods into new image processing tools .
The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent
research program and will have ample opportunities for collaborative work
with a fast-growing structural biology community at McGill University. The
successful candidate will also play a pivotal role in the development and
implementation of the Department’s vision to create an environment that
meets the growing computational demands of high-resolution electron
microscopy. Ideally, the applicant works on a theme that aligns well with
one of the departmental axes (Extracellular Matrix Dynamics, Cytoskeletal
Mechanisms and Signaling, Membrane Proteins and Macromolecular Machines).
The successful candidate will also be expected to teach in undergraduate
and graduate teaching programs, contribute to academic administration in
the Department and more broadly in the University and promote the
discipline of Electron Microscopy and/or correlative microscopy in the
wider University and community activities.
The Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology offers a vibrant scientific
environment and houses a state-of-the-art electron microscopy facility (
http://www.mcgill.ca/femr*)*. The FEMR comprises 5 transmission electron
microscopes (TEMs) including a FEI Titan Krios with phase plate optics,
automated cryogenic sample handling and a Falcon II direct electron
detector camera, a FEI Tecnai G2 F20 with 4 k x 4k CCD coupled with a GIF
imaging filter and EDAX, FEI Tecnai G2 Spirit and FEI Tecnai 12. The
facility has been recently equipped with a new FEI Helios Nanolab 660 focus
ion beam SEM and a FEI CorrSight system for correlative light and electron
microscopy (CLEM) experiments.
Salary will be negotiable, according to the candidate’s qualifications and
experience. Please submit your application electronically *within 30 days*
of the publication of this posting at the following website:
Applications should include:
1. Your contact details, including email address and telephone number.
2. The date of your highest or most relevant degree earned and the name
of the degree-granting institution
3. Cover Letter and Curriculum Vitae (combined into 1 .pdf document)
4. Statement of Research Interests (2 pages maximum) and Teaching
Philosophy (2 pages maximum) combined into 1 .pdf document
5. The names and contact information for three references.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
*McGill University is committed to diversity and equity in employment. It
welcomes applications from: women, Aboriginal persons, persons with
disabilities, ethnic minorities, persons of minority sexual orientation or
gender identity, visible minorities, and others who may contribute to
diversification. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however,
