Assistant or Associate Professor
Department of Medical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases
Rady Faculty of Health Sciences
Position #: 27278/27279

The University of Manitoba invites applications for a Canada Research Chair Tier 2, a tenured or tenure-track position at the rank of assistant or associate professor, in the area of Sexually Transmitted Infection – Resistance and Control.

The Government of Canada has established the CRC program to enable Canadian universities to foster world class research excellence. The proposed CRC aligns with the University’s strategic research plan that identifies Population and Global Health; Immunity, Inflammation and Infectious Disease as two of its defined “Research Signature Areas” of demonstrated research excellence and therefore a targeted area for this recruitment.

The Department of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases is the regional academic home for biomedical, clinical and public health research and training in infectious diseases. (http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/health_sciences/medicine/units/medical_microbiology/) The Chair will focus on the prevention and control of viral, bacterial, fungal or parasitic sexually transmitted infectious diseases (STIs) using global cohorts, advanced omics technologies and experimental laboratory or epidemiological approaches. The major objectives of the Chair’s research program will be to study mechanisms of STI resistance, pathogenesis, host pathogen interactions, environmental or microbiome interactions, protective immunity and/or immunopathology. Research programs aimed at developing vaccines for STIs or understanding the epidemiology or the modeling of STI transmission are also welcomed. The UM has various unique international research cohorts available for such studies. The research program of the Chair will be multidisciplinary, have a high quality training component, and be highly collaborative with members of the department, the University and with regional partners such as the local hospitals, the provincial laboratory and the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML). The NML is Canada’s leading laboratory on outbreak response, and on research and surveillance activities for bacterial and viral infectious diseases, and is supported by substantial facilities and expertise for a systems biology approach to host/pathogen interactions. The UM and NML collaborate extensively on research, training and other academic scientific pursuits.
