Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Statistical Genomics

The Department of Statistics at the University of British Columbia (UBC) 
invites applications for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) - Tier II, in the 
area of Statistical Genomics.  This will be a tenure-track appointment 
at the rank of Assistant Professor.  The position is subject to final 
budgetary approval, and the individual selected will be subject to 
review and final approval by the CRC secretariat.  The anticipated start 
date is July 1, 2012, provided CRC approval is obtained before then. 
Information about the CRC program can be found at http://www.chairs.gc.ca/.

A PhD in Statistics, Biostatistics, or a related field is required. 
Applicants should demonstrate excellence or potential for excellence in 
teaching and research.

The Department of Statistics maintains a broad range of research and 
teaching programs across the statistical sciences.  Vancouver is home to 
a large, active, and highly collaborative genomics community. At UBC, 
relevant units include the Michael Smith Laboratories, the Centre for 
High Throughput Biology, the Life Science Institute, the Centre for 
Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics, and iCapture. Within the British 
Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA) there is also the Michael Smith Genome 
Sciences Centre and the Terry Fox Laboratory.  Many large scale projects 
that capitalize on the resources at UBC, BCCA and beyond are supported 
by Genome British Columbia. Therefore the chair holder will have 
excellent opportunities to develop and apply statistical methodology in 
close collaboration with world class genome scientists.

statement of research activities/plans and statement of teaching 
philosophy, should be sent by November 10, 2011, preferably by email as
