University of Guelph Recruiting for Prestigious Research Chairs in One Health
Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease
The Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) at the College of Biological Science (CBS) invites outstanding applications for a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair (CRC) opportunity in Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease. The proposed CRC will touch on important research themes in the University’s Strategic Research Plan, including fundamental science and its application, and animal and human health and wellbeing. This position will also advance the rapidly growing program in One Health at U of G. The proposed CRC is open to researchers studying any prokaryotic or eukaryotic system, and research in infectious diseases, cancer or neurological disorders represent priority areas. Assessment of applications will begin on May 31, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
Translational Health and Clinical Research
The Department of Biomedical Sciences at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) invites applications for a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Translational Health and Clinical Research. Translational health research, a component of One Health, spans the spectrum of basic science, preclinical experiments with traditional rodent models of disease, clinical research with veterinary species for diseases that parallel human conditions, and ultimately, human clinical trials. The CRC will accelerate translational health research at the U of G, positioning us as world leaders in the utilization of animal models of naturally occurring diseases in veterinary patients for the advancement of veterinary and human health. Assessment of applications will begin on April 25th, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
Infectious Disease Biomonitoring, Biosurveillance, and Biosecurity
The Ontario Veterinary College at the U of G invites outstanding applications for a Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Infectious Disease Biomonitoring, Biosurveillance and Biosecurity (B3) with a focus on emerging zoonotic and animal infectious disease, particularly those with the potential to become pandemics, and disrupt food systems and the Canadian economy. The candidate will develop an innovative research program that will build on U of G’s existing strengths in emerging animal, foodborne, waterborne, and zoonotic diseases. Assessment of applications will begin on April 30, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
The University of Guelph (U of G) is furthering its commitment to improve life—to better society—with a cluster of prestigious Research Chair positions that support discoveries and innovations to improve health, strengthen Canada’s healthcare system, and tackle grand challenges in disease threats at the animal, human, and environment interface.
