At BC Children's Hospital, we foster a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment for our community of more than 300 investigators and their research teams. We cultivate ongoing research innovations by nurturing new and future independent researchers. Almost 400 trainees (masters and doctoral students, post doctoral fellows and research associates) from around the world work with our established investigators. 

In a joint effort with our partner academic institutes, BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute is recruiting new faculty in a variety of research areas:

Assistant Professor (Grant Tenure-Track), UBC Department of Biostatistics

The UBC Department of Statistics invites applications from outstanding investigators for a full time academic position at the rank of Assistant Professor, with a concurrent appointment as an Investigator within the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Statistics, Biostatistics, or a related field. Candidates must also demonstrate excellence or potential for excellence in both teaching and research and should have a strong record of research productivity commensurate with their experience. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent research program, to engage in developing and applying statistical methods to biomedical data arising from clinical trials, clinical and administrative data bases and data-intense biological technologies such as medical imaging and metabolomics, and to catalyze synergies between investigators within the Department of Statistics and across the Research Institute.

The position has an anticipated start date of July 1, 2019 or January 1, 2020. Applications are due by October 10, 2018.

Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure Track), UBC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine

The Research Institute and UBC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is seeking applicants with an expertise in the immunopathology of metabolic diseases such as diabetes mellitus (diabetes), but candidates leading research programs investigating the role of immunometabolism in autoimmunity and/or cancer will also be considered. The ideal candidate's research would integrate studies of how the intestinal microbiome contributes to immunometabolism in health and disease. The successful candidate will also join a thriving group of investigators at the Research Institute working in the specific areas of human immunology, diabetes and obesity.

The expected start date for this position is January 1, 2019. 

Assistant Professor (Tenure Track), UBC Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

The UBC Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and BC Children's Hospital Research Institute are seeking an outstanding scientist as a tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant Professor level. The candidate will have demonstrated research excellence and productivity in the area of metabolomics, advance skills in the analysis and interpretation of high dimensional data, and strong teaching accomplishments. 

The research program is expected to focus on the development and application of metabolomics methods to the study of metabolic diseases with link to childhood, including the potential integration of metabolomic approaches into precision healthcare. In addition, the research program should aim to undertake studies of metabolomics in concert with the microbiome and the metabolome and applications of metabolomics in drug discovery and development. 

The expected start date for this position is January 1, 2019.
