Children's Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba / Canada Research Chair in Developmental Origins of Chronic Disease


TIER 2 CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR IN DEVELOPMENTAL ORIGINS OF CHRONIC DISEASE
ASSISTANT OR ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR
DEPARTMENT OF PEDIATRICS AND CHILD HEALTH
MAX RADY COLLEGE OF MEDICINE, RADY FACULTY OF HEALTH SCIENCES

The University of Manitoba (UM), located in the multi-cultural and vibrant city of Winnipeg, is the province of Manitoba’s primary research-intensive institution, and offers over 100 degree, diploma and certificate programs to more than 30,000 students from around the world. The UM Strategic Research Plan 2015-2020 (www.umanitoba.ca/research/media/Strategic_Research_Plan.pdf) identifies Immunity, Inflammation and Infectious Disease as a Research Signature Area, with “Fundamental Research” and “Integrative Research in Health and Well-Being” as core research themes. We are recruiting to these areas of research strength to support establishment of translational research excellence in mechanisms for developmental origins of chronic disease.

The Department of Pediatrics and Child Health in the Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, invites applications from emerging leaders and established investigators for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier 2 in Developmental Origins of Chronic Disease, combined with a full-time tenure track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, with a cross appointment in a complementary academic department with an accredited graduate program. The selected candidate must compete successfully for the Tier 2 Chair award that supports the position. The position start date will be October 1, 2017 or as soon thereafter as possible. The appointment will be at a salary commensurate with qualifications and experience.  The Rady Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba is a major centre of medical education and research linked to partner institutions throughout Canada and the world. We offer a full range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs, excellent working conditions, a competitive salary and an attractive benefit package. 

The Department of Pediatrics and Child Health is one of Manitoba’s largest academic clinical departments, with diverse and significant commitment to excellence in clinical, basic and translational research, post-graduate clinical and research training, and graduate student training. Support for research and research training is facilitated through close partnership with the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM), as well as with academic departments in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences with programs accredited by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. CHRIM provides, within 32,000ft2 of new wet lab and animal research space, laboratory and office space for investigators and their team, multi-user research infrastructure and core facilities for cell and molecular biology research, as well as small animal lung function and metabolic testing. CHRIM has a substantial annual equipment budget and is home to a sophisticated Next Generation Sequencing core facility. The Chair’s research program will also be supported by eight Basic Science Core Facilities established by the Max Rady College of Medicine (http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/health_sciences/medicine/research/bscp.html)

The Tier 2 CRC is linked to the Manitoba DEVelOpmenTal Origins of chronic diseases In children Network (DEVOTION), a multidisciplinary cluster of research teams integrated to advance translational research and understanding of the developmental origins of health and chronic disease (DOHaD) in youth. Two CHRIM research teams, Biology of Breathing (BoB) and Diabetes Research Envisioned and Accomplished in Manitoba (DREAM), are cornerstones of DEVOTION and integrate the research and training activities of clinical, basic biomedical and population health investigators with core programs in pediatric and maternal health and disease, including diabetes and co-morbidities, asthma, lung disease associated with birth complications, and metabolic disorders.

The Chair will support the objectives of DEVOTION, in particular research and training that enables understanding early life origins and biological mechanisms that underpin chronic non-communicable diseases. The Chair is intended to support programs that use and develop models that mimic early life exposure and key risk factors for chronic disease, which may include in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo human or animal systems. Research emphasis should be on deciphering early life and maternal cellular, molecular and biological mechanisms that determine health and disease. The successful candidate’s independent research program should be translational with strong potential for innovation that could lead to improved health and health care. The research program should also have strong potential to leverage cross-disciplinary capacity in DEVOTION to discover new disease risk factors and develop novel interventions to prevent the long-term health consequences associated with early life exposure to adverse conditions. The candidate requires a track record and program for strong research training and teaching for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, clinical research fellows, and undergraduate science and medical students.

We encourage applications from emerging leaders with a successful research program, holding a PhD and/or MD degree or equivalent. Successful Tier 2 Chair awardees are required to be exceptional scholars with an established or emerging independent research program. The candidate must have less than 10 years of experience as an active researcher since obtaining his/her terminal degree at the time of nomination. Tier 2 Chairs are valued at $100,000 per year for 5 years with an option to renew once. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) will have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. Please contact the UM’s research grants office for more information (http://umanitoba.ca/research/ors/). The Canada Research Chairs website also provides full program information including details on eligibility criteria (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx). In addition to the CRC Tier 2 Chair, the successful applicant will be supported by a substantive research startup fund package to ensure program launch and early productivity.

 

The University of Manitoba is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from women, members of racialized communities, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, persons of all sexual orientations and genders, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.

 

Application materials, including letters of reference, will be handled in accordance with the protection of privacy provision of "The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy" (Manitoba). Please note that curriculum vitae may be provided to participating members of the search process. Assessment of applications will begin October 15 2016, but the position will remain open until it has been filled.
