Faculty of Medicine
Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (2008)
The Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine wishes to expand its strength in Systems and Computational Neuroscience. We are seeking dynamic individuals to fill several tenure-track positions at the junior or senior level. Strong candidates using innovative theoretical and experimental approaches to study neural function are encouraged to apply. These experimental approaches may range from the molecular to the systems level, but must be strongly coupled with computational modeling and theory. The ideal candidate will have an excellent track record of research that combines theory and experimentation, either within their own program, or in collaboration. Outstanding candidates will be eligible for Canada Research Chairs. Successful candidates will have the opportunity for cross-appointment with Departments in the Faculty of Science. They will also have the opportunity to interact with the large contingent of neuroscience researchers distributed throughout the Faculty of Medicine as well as within Federal government laboratories in Ottawa. Attractive start-up packages are available. Candidates will be expected to contribute to the teaching mission of the Department, including developing an interdisciplinary curriculum in Computational and Systems Neuroscience. Since the University of Ottawa is a bilingual institution, proficiency in both English and French would be an asset.
As Canada's National Capital, Ottawa is a vibrant and attractive city with a high standard of living. It has several cultural amenities and offers easy access to summer and winter outdoor activities.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Equity is a University of Ottawa policy; women, aboriginal people, members of visible minorities and persons with disabilities are invited to apply. More information on the Department can be obtained at: http://www.uottawa.ca/academic/med/cellmed/
Interested individuals are requested to submit a curriculum vitae, a list of at least three references and a statement of research interests to:

Applications will be reviewed until the positions are filled.
Faculty of Science
Department of Physics (2007-2008)
The Department of Physics of the University of Ottawa invites applications for a tenure-track position in experimental or theoretical biological physics. The appointment will normally be at the Assistant Professor level, but applications for higher ranks will also be considered. The Department continues to build its strength in areas such as, but not limited to, biological modeling and computation, neurophysics, computational biology, cellular interactions, genomics, proteomics, molecular biophysics and biophotonics. The individuals will be part of a growing contingent of interdisciplinary researchers studying biological dynamics and computation within the Department of Physics, the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Medicine and its affiliated Center for Neural Dynamics, Ottawa Health Research Institutes and Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology. As Canada’s National Capital, Ottawa is a vibrant and attractive city, well served for national and international travel. It has numerous cultural amenities and offers easy access to several summer and winter outdoor activities (see http://www.uottawa.ca/whychoose/city/index.html ).
According to government policy, all qualified candidates are invited to apply. However, preference will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The University of Ottawa is an equal opportunity employer. We strongly encourage applications from women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities. As the University of Ottawa is a bilingual institution, bilingualism is an asset. Applicants are requested to send a curriculum vitae, the names of at least three referees, and a statement of research interests to:
Search Committee (c/o Dr. André Longtin)
Department of Physic
