Dear Colleagues,

please forward this announcement to those you think may be interested.

Andre Longtin

Tenure-track positions
Faculty of Medicine
Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine

The Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine wishes to expand its
strength in Computational and Systems Neuroscience. We are seeking dynamic
individuals to fill several tenure-track positions at the junior or senior
level. Strong candidates using innovative theoretical and experimental
approaches to study neural function are encouraged to apply. These
experimental approaches may range from the molecular to the systems level,
but must be strongly coupled with computational modeling and theory. The
ideal candidate will have an excellent track record of research that
combines theory and experimentation, either within their own program, or
in collaboration.

Outstanding candidates will be eligible for Canada Research Chairs.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity for cross-appointment with
Departments in the Faculty of Science, and become part of the Center for
Neural Dynamics. They will also have the opportunity to interact with the
large contingent of neuroscience researchers distributed throughout the
Faculty of Medicine, and its affiliated Ottawa Health Research Institutes,
Ottawa Institute for Systems Biology as well as within Federal government
laboratories in Ottawa. Attractive start-up packages are available.
Candidates will be expected to contribute to the teaching mission of the
Department, including developing an interdisciplinary curriculum in
Computational and Systems Neuroscience. Since the University of Ottawa is
a bilingual institution, proficiency in both English and French would be
an asset.

As Canada's National Capital, Ottawa is a vibrant and attractive city with
a high standard of living. It has several cultural amenities and offers
easy access to summer and winter outdoor activities.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and
permanent residents will be given priority. Equity is a University of
Ottawa policy; women, aboriginal people, members of visible minorities and
persons with disabilities are invited to apply. More information on the
Department can be obtained at: http://www.uottawa.ca/academic/med/cellmed
Interested individuals are requested to submit a curriculum vitae, a list
of at least three references and a statement of research interests to:

Dr. Len Maler  (lmaler at uottawa.ca)
Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
Faculty of Medicine
University of Ottawa
451 Smyth Road
Ottawa, Ontario
Canada K1H 8M5
Applications will be reviewed until the positions are filled.
