The Canada Research Chair (CRC) Program is the flagship of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world’s top countries in research and development.
They are seeking to nominate an emerging scholar who will lead a world-class research program focused on zoonotic viruses and their interplay (evolution, susceptibility and host response) in animal reservoirs. The position will establish new research tools and provide fundamental understanding of virus biology and host responses in zoonotic reservoirs. The work is expected to contribute to understanding of novel mechanisms of defense and ultimately the development of novel control strategies directed at viral emerging pathogens. Appointed candidates will receive generous start-up support and a starting salary highly competitive with comparable academic positions in Canada. A comprehensive benefits package, including health & dental, life insurance, pension plan, and six weeks’ vacation is part of a competitive compensation package.
