The College of Medicine and the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization (VIDO-InterVac) at the University of Saskatchewan are inviting applications for a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Tuberculosis. The incumbent would be an expert in TB research and would have the opportunity to work with underserved communities in collaboration with clinician investigators, microbiologists, immunologists, other basic scientists, and public health officials, to provide novel approaches to mitigate the public health challenges of TB inextricably linked to issues of poverty, overall health status, and inequitable access to healthcare resources. As many of these problems are similar around the world, such mitigation strategies could have significant international impact. In an exceptional circumstance, a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair may be selected. Canada Research Chairs (CRC) are part of the national strategy to make Canada one of the world's top countries in research and development (http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca).
