Job Description

The Department of Psychiatry, in partnership with the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary invite applications for a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier II in Clinical Biomarkers in Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Disorders. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor (tenure-track) and will be nominated for a CRC Tier II Chair. The successful candidate will establish an active research program that focuses on translating biomarker findings into clinical care during the unique developmental periods defined by childhood and adolescence. They will lead an innovative clinical research program combining data from multiple levels of analysis in the prediction of treatment or disease outcomes in children and adolescents with mood or anxiety disorders.

Qualifications & Experience

The successful candidate will establish an active research program that focuses on translating biomarker findings into clinical care during the unique developmental periods defined by childhood and adolescence. They will lead an innovative clinical research program combining data from multiple levels of analysis in the prediction of treatment or disease outcomes in children and adolescents being treated for mood and anxiety disorders. The ability to interact with existing neuromodulation / neurostimulation research groups (TDCS, TMS, DBS or MR-guided focus ultrasound) is required.
Qualifications include an MD and more than five years of additional research experience. An advanced degree and post-doctoral research experience in mood research is required. The successful candidate must demonstrate evidence of a track record of publications in high quality journals, evidence of an ability to collaborate, lead a research team, and effectiveness in teaching at the University level. Applicants at the Assistant Professor level must have evidence of a track record of publications in high impact journals. Applicants at the Associate Professor level must present evidence of a strong publication record, as well as a demonstrated ability to attract peer-reviewed funding. Candidates must show evidence of ability to develop a productive, externally funded research program, and fit with one or more of the ten Brain and Mental Health Teams of the HBI (http://www.hbi.ucalgary.ca/our-research). For applicants without a demonstrated record of peer reviewed external grants, this criterion is accomplished by means of a structured “chalk-talk” interview in which the candidate is asked to present a fundable research project to the search committee.

The Canada Research Chair in Clinical Biomarkers in Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Disorders will be housed in the Mathison Centre for Mental Health Research & Education. The Centre, created in 2012, brings together 60 investigators from six faculties across the University of Calgary and provides an enriched environment for mental health research and the training of students and fellows at the university’s Cumming School of Medicine. The CRC’s research program will support the Mathison Centre in realizing its vision of being a leading international mental health research centre with expertise in the early identification and treatment of psychiatric illness. Tier II Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., candidates must have been an active researcher in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination). Candidates who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree and who have had career breaks, such as maternity, parental, or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc., may have their eligibility for a Tier II Chair assessed through the program’s Tier II justification process. In cases where the candidate has more than one PhD, or have obtained a professional degree (MD, DVM, etc) in addition to a PhD, the first of these degrees is used in the 10 year qualification. Exemptions may be granted by providing a formal justification. Please contact UCalgary’s Office of Research Services for more information: ipd@ucalgary.ca. Further information about the Canada Research Chairs Program can be found on the Government of Canada’s CRC website, including eligibility criteria.


The candidate must be eligible for Licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.

Must read, write and speak English.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and Permanent Residents will be given priority.
