Subject: [d-ssc] Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in Stochastic Modeling with Application to Bioinformatics

Dalhousie University invites applications from outstanding candidates in
stochastic modeling of complex data structures, with application to
bioinformatics, to be nominated for a Tier II Canada Research Chair.

The priorities of the appointment are the excellence of the candidate
and the ability to initiate a world-class research program.  The
successful candidate will have a PhD in the Mathematical Sciences, with
expertise in stochastic modeling, and inter-disciplinary experience in
applying such models to real-world bioinformatics data.

Dalhousie is a world leader in several areas of bioinformatics, with the
hub of bioinformatic research being the Centre for Comparative Genomics
and Evolutionary Bioinformatics (http://cgeb.dal.ca).  Networks play a
role of central importance, with areas of interest including metabolic
and ecologic networks, metagenomics and phylogenetic reconstruction.

The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenure stream position
at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.  The position is not
conditional on receipt of the Canada Research Chair, but the successful
candidate will be expected to be a strong candidate for, and apply for,
a Tier II Canada Research Chair position.  Canada Research Chairs are
research-intensive faculty positions providing the chair holder with an
opportunity to grow their research program through the provision of
protected time for research.  Tier II Chairs are 5 year appointments,
renewable once. Details of the program can be found atwww.chairs.gc.ca.

The start date for the position is July 1, 2016, or as soon as possible

Consideration of candidates will begin in October, 2015, and will
continue until the position is filled. Applications should include a
curriculum vitae, a research proposal (max 3 pages), a statement of
teaching interests and experience, and three confidential letters of
reference forwarded under separate cover by the referees, to:

Chair, Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Chase Building, Room 219
