Job posting No 21057
Open to internal and external candidates | Tenure-track Position
June 1st, 2021 to July 7, 2021
Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) is the only institution in Quebec dedicated exclusively to graduate level university research and training. The influence of our faculty and students extends around the world. In partnership with the community as well as the industry, we are proud to contribute to the development of society through our discoveries and through the training we provide to a new generation of scientific, social, and technological innovators.
The INRS and its Centre Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie (AFSB) research center wish to recruit a professor in the field of population genetics for the joint research unit (UMR) created in partnership with l’Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (UQAC). The person sought will have expertise in population genetics with more specific (but not limited to) interests in epidemiology, including studies on First Nations and Inuit populations, genetic epidemiology, statistics applied to health (biostatistics), as well as genetic analysis from metadata such as the BALSAC population file and the biobanks available at UQAC. Whether the research is applied or fundamental, based on modeling or the development of innovative approaches, the results should have a high potential for knowledge transfer. In this sense, the person sought should be able to establish an autonomous, competitive and innovative funding program (grants and sponsorships), and to teach in the various graduate programs.
French is the working language of the Institute. Fluency in English is required.
Candidates whose native language is not French are encouraged to apply. The Centre will provide them with all the resources necessary to facilitate their learning of the French language.
