University of Calgary: Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in Chemical Lipidomics

The Departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry in the Faculty of Science at the University of Calgary invites applications for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier II in the area of Chemical Lipidomics. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure-track) or in exceptional cases as an Associate Professor (with tenure) and will be nominated for an NSERC Tier II Canada Research Chair. The candidate’s program is expected to combine recent advances in analytical technology and big biological data analysis via biochemical techniques, including high-resolution mass spectrometry to radically expand the practical scope of Lipidomics analyses of the complex molecular phenotypes that contribute to health or disease. The anticipated start date for the position is September 1st, 2020.

Eligibility criteria

Tier II Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., candidates must have been an active researcher in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination). Candidates who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree and who have had career breaks, such as maternity, or extended leaves, clinical training, etc., may have their eligibility for a Tier II Chair assessed through the program’s Tier II justification process. Please contact University of Calgary’s Office of Research Services for more information: ipd@ucalgary.ca.

Further information about the Canada Research Chairs Program can be found on the Government of Canada’s CRC website, including eligibility criteria: www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca and www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx.

The Role and Expected Duties

The Chair will establish an active research program that focuses on the molecular roles that lipids play in biology. Research questions investigated by the candidate may include (but not limited to) time- and stressor-dependent perturbations in the lipidomes related to cell-cell signaling, role of lipids in promoting or resolving inflammation, microbial lipidomics, whole-body energy regulation, the lipid underpinnings of metabolic disease, and unpacking the role lipids play in ageing and tumorigenesis. Additional foci may include the complex lipid changes induced by viral infections and the impacts xenobiotics on lipid and hormonal metabolism. The proposed CRC will develop the Lipidomics platform necessary to investigate the emerging areas of biology.

The proposed position will build on the existing UCalgary strengths in metabolomics, proteomics, and peptidomics. This new CRC-based program will work closely with the Calgary Metabolomics Research Facility (CMRF), one of Canada’s largest mass spectrometry facilities for small molecules, and will interface with the existing suite of structural biology, physical chemistry, and wet laboratory facilities housed in the Department of Biological Sciences building. The CRC will advance institutional leadership in the analysis of big data and augment our existing excellence in the biomolecular computing through the Centre for Molecular Simulation (CMS). The CRC in Chemical Lipidomics will provide a cross-disciplinary bridge for the already existing programs in Biochemistry (BCEM), Cell, Microbial and Molecular Biology (BCEM), Nanotechnology/Material Chemistry and Biological/Medicinal Chemistry programs in the Departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry. The Chair will have unique opportunities to interact with leading researchers in health sciences, structural biology, microscopy, structural proteomics and technology development.

The long-term goal for the CRC chair is to develop a vibrant and internationally recognized research program in alignment with institutional and the Faculty of Science strategic research plans. More specifically, the CRC chair position fits within the institutional research priorities in “Engineering Solutions for Health” and “Infection, Immunity, and Chronic Diseases” and the Faculty of Science grand challenge in the “Personalized Health at the Molecular Level.” The successful candidate will possess the attributes and desire to lead research initiatives within strategic interdisciplinary themes at the University of Calgary, to build on current strengths, to develop strategy for future growth and promote program development combined with both student engagement and experience. Additionally, the Chair will play an important role in teaching and research supervision of students in the Departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry undergraduate and graduate programs. Service to the Department, Faculty, University, and Community is also expected.

Qualifications

The University of Calgary requires the successful candidate will have a PhD or equivalent science degree in chemistry (analytical or physical), biochemistry, cellular or molecular biology, and relevant post-doctoral experience.

The successful candidate at the Assistant Professor level must demonstrate evidence of a track record of publications in high quality journals, prior experience in working with external research funding programs including peer-reviewed post-doctoral fellowships programs, and effectiveness in teaching at the University level.

The successful candidate at the Associate Professor level must demonstrate evidence of a strong track record of publications in high quality journals, evidence of securing ongoing external research funding, effectiveness in teaching at the University level, and evidence of effective graduate student supervision.

Dr. Karl Jobst hired by Memorial University

Congratulations to Dr. Karl Jobst who has been hired as an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. He completed his B.Sc. and Ph.D. at McMaster University and previously work at the Ministry of Environment of Ontario. His area of expertise is environmental mass spectrometry. He describes his research as:

"The identities of most environmental toxicants and their role in causing chronic disease are unknown. Our research aims to address this challenge through the development of novel nontargeted mass spectrometry techniques and sophisticated informetric and computational tools. We utilize multidimensional chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry to unravel complex environmental and biological media. We complement these experiments with quantum chemical calculations to elucidate structures and reaction mechanisms. Ultimately, we seek to understand how the (un)intentional release of chemicals impacts the environment and human health.."
