The Department of Biology at Dalhousie University invites applications for a full-time probationary tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Cell Biology beginning as early as July 2020. This search is restricted to candidates who self-identify within particular equity-seeking groups (see below).

We seek a dynamic researcher working in the areas of cell structure and function and/or cell signaling and other mechanisms by which cells respond to changes in their environment. We are especially interested in scholars who will create synergies with existing strengths in our diverse department (https://www.dal.ca/faculty/science/biology.html). Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree, postdoctoral experience and demonstrated excellence in research potential. The candidate must also demonstrate clear potential for excellence in teaching and interest in incorporating innovative, effective evidence-based approaches to teaching in their classroom. The successful candidate will be expected to 1) develop an internationally recognized, externally funded research program, 2) supervise honors students and graduate students at the M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels, 3) participate in team teaching of large introductory courses in cell biology and genetics as well as develop and teach an upper-level/graduate course and 4) contribute positively to an inclusive, dynamic and diverse department.

Applications must include a one-page cover letter summarizing the application, curriculum vitae, summary of research interests and research plan (maximum three pages), description of teaching philosophy and interests (maximum three pages), and names and contact information of three referees. All correspondence will be acknowledged. Applications will be accepted until February 26, 2020 and can be submitted at http://dal.peopleadmin.ca/postings/2588.
