Description:

Le Centre AFSB offre un environnement de travail collégial composé d’une cinquantaine de membres du corps professoral qui collaborent à la mise en œuvre de la programmation scientifique du Centre en menant des recherches et en offrant une formation avancée dans les domaines de l’infection et de l’immunité (voir Infectiopole INRS (https://infectiopole.inrs.ca)), de l’impact de l’environnement et de l’hérédité sur le développement de la maladie, de la découverte de traitements et de prophylaxies et de la biotechnologie microbienne. Le Centre AFSB est également le seul membre du Réseau Pasteur en Amérique du Nord.

The Centre Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie (AFSB) of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the field of virology. We are seeking candidates with a strong expertise in the broad field of virology, particularly in the study of viral replication mechanisms and/or virus-host interactions. Research subjects involving re(emerging) and/or vector-borne viruses, or innovative bio-imaging or systems biology approaches will be considered an asset. The successful candidate is expected to build and maintain an independent, innovative, and externally funded research program in virology, to train master’s and doctoral students, and to teach in the Centre AFSB graduate programs.

INRS is the only university in Quebec dedicated exclusively to research and to graduate training. The Centre AFSB faculty members enjoy renovated laboratory spaces and have access to several core facilities, including a biosafety level 3 laboratory, as well as confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, electron microscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance facilities. The Centre also has close ties to the Laboratoire national de biologie expérimentale de l’INRS, a facility dedicated to research using small and large animal models, under biocontainment levels 1, 2, and 3 (certification underway for the latter).


Education Requirement:
Requirements • Doctoral degree in a related biomedical or biotechnological field and relevant postdoctoral experience; • Excellent research achievements; • Technical and academic expertise that complements the research activities at Centre AFSB (https://inrs.ca/en/research/research-themes/infection-and-immunity/); • Strong potential to secure financial support from funding agencies; • High competence for teaching and mentoring graduate students.
