Assistant/Associate Professor in Computational Genomics, McGill University

The Department of Psychiatry at McGill University and the Douglas Research Centre are currently inviting applications for a full-time Contract Academic Staff position in the field of computational genomics, epigenomics, proteomics (“omics”). This will be a three-year, renewable appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor and does not confer eligibility for tenure.

Applicants with expertise in any relevant areas in bioinformatics, computer science, computational genomics, programming, mathematics will be considered, with priority to those with a strong track record in single-cell data analysis. Scientists focusing on computational integration of large-scale functional and comparative multiomic datasets are especially encouraged to apply.

McGill is one of Canada’s leading research-intensive universities with students from over 140 countries. The university is located in Montreal, a cosmopolitan city with great cultural and linguistic diversity. It has long been considered a leader in neuroscience and a strong innovator in methods that support a wide spectrum of basic and clinical research endeavours. The university’s strong training programs in Biological and Biomedical Engineering, Psychiatry, and Quantitative Life Sciences as well as the Integrated Program in Neuroscience favour the development of strong multidisciplinary research teams.

With over 55 researchers spanning a full range of mental health research (neuroscience, clinical services, policy, and epidemiology/population health), the Douglas Research Centre (DRC) has been an international leader in mental health research for more than 30 years. The DRC has been at the forefront of pioneering innovative methods in the field of psychiatry, including single-cell neurobiology and has recently secured significant funding for a research program focused on using single-cell approaches to gain insights into the brain and its related disorders.
