5 Faculty Positions at the Brain Research Centre, UBC

University of British Columbia and

The Brain Research Centre of UBC and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority is embarking on a major expansion of its programs, based on recent successes in attracting substantial infrastructure funding.  We have available 5 full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty positions, at both senior and junior levels, across a broad spectrum of areas in Neuroscience. Three of these positions will be Canada Research Chairs in association with the University’s “Neuroscience Cluster” in the Faculty of Medicine. These prestigious positions are funded through a federal government program, with access to research support appropriate to the programs and goals.  For more information about this programme, visit http://www.chairs.gc.ca/.  The other two positions will be supported through our endowment fundraising initiatives.  

Applications are invited in the areas of Stroke, Mood Disorders, Neuroprotection, Neurodegenerative Disorders, Postnatal Brain Development, Neuronal Plasticity, Synaptic Mechanisms, and Cell Signaling.  The Centre specifically encourages individuals using brain imaging and/or genomic/proteomic strategies to apply.

The University of British Columbia hires on the basis of merit and it is committed to employment equity. We encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.  Please note that there is no restriction with regard to nationality or residence for Canada Research Chair positions, and such positions are open to all candidates.  These offers will be made in keeping with immigration requirements associated with the Canada Research Chairs program. 

The expected start date for these appointments is July 1st, 2003 or July 1, 2004.  Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
