    The Department of Biochemistry invites applications for a tenure-track position at the level of Assistant Professor in “Gene-Nutrient Interactions in Human Health and Development”. The Department of Biochemistry currently offers an undergraduate degree program in Human Biosciences. In addition, robust graduate programs in both Human Biosciences and Food Sciences are offered. This position is a cornerstone of the department’s strategic plan to provide world-class, inclusive education in Human Biosciences. The Department of Biochemistry has identified “Molecular Biochemistry of Life Processes” and “Nutritional Biochemistry” as primary research foci for future development, with a particular focus on the molecular basis of human health and disease. The successful applicant will be expected to develop an independent, externally funded research program that studies the relationship of gene-nutrient interactions to human health, chronic disease, and/or development throughout the lifespan. This research program should use cutting edge molecular and/or cellular biology techniques. The exact research specialization within these general areas is open but those studying gut microbiome and nutrients in host gene expression, trans-generational effects of nutrition on epigenome/epigenetics, the relationship of diet to genetic risk factors of disease, or in-born errors of metabolism are particularly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate should utilize a variety of experimental approaches but it is expected that their research program will have significant pre-clinical (i.e. animal and/or cellular models) and/or translational aspects. It is also envisaged that through the establishment of new collaborations, the successful applicant will further strengthen ties between the two research foci in the Department, as well as strengthening ties within the wider Faculty of Science and other units on campus such as the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation, the Faculty of Medicine, and the School of Pharmacy. The successful applicant will be required to contribute to teaching and supervision in the Human Biosciences undergraduate program, as well as to graduate degree course offerings, particularly in the areas of nutrient metabolism and human gene regulation.

    Applicants should have a strong research background with a Ph.D. and post-doctoral training in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Nutrition, Human Biosciences, or closely related fields with a strong record of publications. A demonstrated track record of or potential for teaching excellence in Human Biosciences would be an asset. Interested applicants should submit a 1) cover letter, 2) full CV, 3) summary of proposed research (no more than three pages), 4)

    description of teaching and mentoring philosophy (no more than three pages), 5) statement outlining their EDI philosophy, commitment and implementation strategy (no more than 1 page) and 6) a list of at least three referees with complete contact information.
