Translational Surgical Pathology/Chemistry Scientist
Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada

The Departments of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Surgery, and Chemistry at Queen’s University invite applications from internationally recognized scientists whose research is congruent with the objective of building an outstanding program in innovative translational research linking analytical chemistry, diagnostic pathology and advanced surgical practice. The successful applicant will have a tenured appointment at the rank of full Professor and is expected to participate in undergraduate education and supervise both graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. The preferred start date for this position is January 1, 2019.

Applicants must have a proven record of collaboration with both academic physicians and chemists and they must be aware of the complexities of undertaking basic and patient-oriented research in a hospital environment. They will have demonstrable experience in the creation and support of cross-functional teams to develop next generation technologies that can be used for: i) the early diagnosis of disease particularly in an intraoperative surgical setting, ii) assessing prognosis and progression, iii) predicting therapeutic response and iv) minimally invasive surgical procedures. The successful applicant will have a distinguished track record of advancing their research in partnership with industry, which may include company creation and patent out-licensing to other firms, to expedite the translation and commercialization of discovery and innovative research. Preference will be given to candidates with active industrial collaborations to support advanced translational research into the clinical setting.

The University invites applications from all qualified individuals. Queen’s is committed to employment equity and diversity in the workplace and welcomes applications from women, visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ persons. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian Immigration requirements, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.

To comply with Federal laws, the University is obliged to gather statistical information about how many applicants for each job vacancy are Canadian citizens / permanent residents of Canada. Applicants need not identify their country of origin or citizenship, however, all applications must include one of the following statements: “I am a Canadian citizen / permanent resident of Canada”; OR, “I am not a Canadian citizen / permanent resident of Canada”. Applications that do not include this information will be deemed incomplete.
A complete application consists of (i) a cover letter (including one of the two statements regarding Canadian citizenship / permanent resident status specified in the previous paragraph); (ii) a current Curriculum Vitae (including a comprehensive list of publications, awards, and grants received); (iii) a statement of current and prospective research interests and experience;
(iv) a statement of teaching experience and interests together with a teaching portfolio (including teaching outlines and evaluations if available); (v) the names and contact information of a minimum of three referees, one of which must be at arm’s length.

The deadline for applications is July 8th, 2018. Applicants are asked to send all documents in their application packages electronically as PDFs to Dr. Hans-Peter Loock and Dr. Alexander Boag, Co-Chairs of the search committee (c/o Ms. Barbara Latimer, bal@queensu.ca).
