This recruitment initiative will complement and strengthen the activities and mission of the recently approved Microbiome and Disease Tolerance Centre (MDTC) within McGill University. The MDTC is an advanced research and education centre working in the area of Functional Microbiomics, i.e., the study of mechanisms by which the microbiome determines our immune health status and prevents the development of chronic, immune-mediated inflammatory diseases. Our goal is to become a leading group in this area and use our discoveries to prevent infectious diseases and generate new immunotherapeutic strategies.

With this goal in mind, we invite applications from highly qualified individuals (PhD, MD, or equivalent degrees and at least three years of postdoctoral research training) to fill a tenure track position within the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at McGill. The selected candidate will embark in an exciting academic career by developing a cutting edge research program within MDTC while contributing to the departmental mission of teaching and service.

General research areas of particular interest are Molecular and Cellular Immunology and Microbiology, including molecular and cellular dissection of immune mechanisms that regulate microbial commensalism and pathogenicity and their role in the initiation and progression of chronic inflammatory immune-mediated diseases, in vivo molecular dissection of microbial-host interactions, and the development of feasible immune tolerance-inducing strategies. Applicants with expertise in novel approaches and methodologies (e.g. systems biology, computational modeling, microbiome studies, bioinformatics) are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Department has suitable laboratory space and access to state of the art facilities in animal housing, proteomics and structural biology, flow cytometry, phlebotomy, cellular sorting and imaging, and provides access to close nearby core facilities in genomics, mass spectrometry, NMR, X-ray crystallography and molecular pathology.
