Models of Congenital Malformation and Disease
The Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute
University of Toronto
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Research Institute seeks an outstanding scientist or clinician scientist committed to studying the molecular, genetic and/or cellular mechanisms underlying congenital malformation and disease.
The successful candidate will fill a permanent Scientist position at SickKids within one of its seven fully integrated research programs and is expected to qualify for an academic cross-appointment as an Assistant or Associate Professor in an appropriate department at the University of Toronto.
Candidates must have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD, significant postdoctoral experience and a proven record of outstanding scientific accomplishments in aforementioned research areas. Wherein a practicing MD, the successful candidate will have obtained an appropriate Certificate of Registration from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (license to practice), and appropriate VISA, if applicable. The successful candidate will initiate and maintain an original, competitive, and independently funded research program of international calibre. Potential for collegial interaction will be an important element in attaining the position. The successful candidate will benefit from the interdepartmental molecular genetics and paediatric medicine initiatives at the University of Toronto as well as the extensive research and core facilities of SickKids, the University and its affiliated institutions for cell, tissue and whole animal imaging, genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience within the range of $120K – 150K CAD. A competitive benefits package is being offered along with support for relocation expenses.
The successful candidate is expected to develop a research plan in the broad area of human disease modeling, with the intent of understanding cellular, molecular and genetic mechanisms underlying congenital malformations and disease states, and in developing therapeutic strategies. Research using patient cohorts and/or animal models; cell, stem cell and/or 3D organoid models; or cell-based, small molecule and biologic therapeutic development are of interest, but other relevant approaches will also be considered. Research experience in the genetics of paediatric disease, including congenital disorders and rare diseases, will be prioritized. Strong consideration will be given to research programs that focus on musculoskeletal disorders/skeletal dysplasia. Interested individuals should email their application in PDF format to: Chair, Disease Models Search Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
