We provide a cutting-edge integrated research environment that harnesses the most recent advances in genomics and other areas of large-scale biology, with quantitative methodology and computational analysis for breakthroughs in medical and life sciences research.
Canada’s Genomics Enterprise (CGEn), a national network of genome centres focused on whole genome sequence analysis for biomedical research, is seeking a qualified individual to fill a position as Chief Administrative and Scientific Officer.
CGEn was founded in 2015 with a $58M grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and partners, designed to align the three major Canadian genome centres in a single, consolidated network. These centres are The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG) in Toronto, Canada’s Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre (GSC) in Vancouver, and the McGill University and Genome Quebec Innovation Centre (MUGQIC) in Montreal. Ongoing support of CGEn is provided by funding from CFI’s Major Science Initiatives (MSI) fund, awarded in 2016, and other funding partners including Genome Canada through its Genomics Technology Platforms program, provincial governments, and others. Cost recoveries for service billings make up the majority of CGEn’s overall budget. CGEn’s client base includes well over a thousand individual laboratories per year, across Canada and worldwide, working in a variety of disciplines.
The Computational and Statistical Genomics (CSG) lab at McGill is recruiting Postdoctoral fellows who are interested in developing and applying state-of-the-art computational methods for solving various problems related to functional genomics and regulation of gene expression. We offer an interdisciplinary research environment with exciting challenges at the forefront of genomics research, and excellent opportunities for collaboration with experimental and computational researchers.
The Computational and Statistical Genomics (CSG) lab at McGill is recruiting a research assistant who is interested in applying computational methods to solving problems related to functional genomics and regulation of gene expression. Successful applicants should have a B.Sc. in computer science or related areas, and have experience in applying computational methods to solving biological problems.
The Centre is currently seeking a motivated and experienced individual for the position of research assistant. Under the direction of the Head of Genome Sciences, the incumbent will be involved in all aspects of the laboratory workflows involved in next generation sequencing research projects using state-of-the-art equipment.
