Assistant Professor (CLA), Computational Lung Modelling in Respiratory Health & Disease

McMaster University

Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, McMaster University, Faculty of Health Sciences

McMaster University is located on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee and Mississauga Nations and, within the lands protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum agreement.

Position Description

The Department of Medicine (Division of Respirology) invites applications for a three-year, renewable faculty appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in the contractually limited appointment category.

We are seeking an early career investigator with expertise in computational lung modelling in respiratory health and disease. The applicant is required to have computational and technical expertise in transcriptomics, especially single cell RNAseq, high content lung imaging, data visualization and complex analysis (including mirobiome analysis). Content expertise in lung disease (e.g. COPD, interstitial lung disease) or in physiologic and biologic changes that occur in the lung during health, disease and/or aging is required. The candidate would ideally have expertise in analysis of clinical samples/human tissue (e.g., tissue microarrays, scRNAseq of lung tissue, quantitative histology, 2D & 3D imaging analysis). Mouse models of lung disease would be an asset but not a requirement. The successful candidate will build an invigorating research portfolio, and work closely with clinicians, clinician-scientists and PhD scientists at the Firestone Institute for Respiratory Health.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in a related field and at least 3 years of post-doctoral training in pulmonary research. The applicant must demonstrate a strong track-record of collaborative research and the ability to mentor a diverse range of trainees from the undergraduate to graduate level. Teaching experience is an asset but not required. An excellent record of collegiality and collaboration are prerequisites for this position.

McMaster is a highly ranked research-intensive university. Its Faculty of Health Sciences has a reputation for innovative programs, interdisciplinary cutting-edge research, leading faculty, and aspiring students.

The diversity of our workforce is at the core of our innovation and creativity and strengths our research and teaching excellence. In keeping with its Statement on Building an Inclusive Community with a Shared Purpose, McMaster University strives to embody the values of respect, collaboration, and diversity, and has a strong commitment to employment equity. The University seeks qualified candidates who share our commitment to equity and inclusion, who will contribute to the diversification of ideas and perspectives, and especially welcomes applications from First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, members of racialized communities (“visible minorities”), persons with disabilities, women, and persons who identify as 2SLGBTQ+.

As part of McMaster’s commitment, all applicants are invited to complete a confidential Applicant Diversity Survey through the online application submission process. The Survey questionnaire requests voluntary self-identification in relation to equity-seeking groups that have historically faced and continue to face barriers in employment.
