( seeks to fill two tenure-track positions; the first is at the level of Associate Professor/Full Professor and the second is at level of Assistant Professor. Candidates holding a PhD or equivalent with demonstrated success in research excellence, and potential for high quality teaching in the broad area of Molecular Parasitology or Immunoparasitology are invited to submit their applications. The appointee at the rank of Associate Professor/Full Professor should have a track record commensurate with an appointment as a Tier I Canada Research Chair ( We seek applicants with a history of excellent and impactful publications and successful achievements in securing extramural research funding. Applications are encouraged from scientists working on parasite systems of veterinary and human importance, in particular with research programs focusing on molecular or immunological aspects of parasitology. The appointees are expected to develop a competitive research program supported by external funding and will participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching within the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences ( and McGill University have a large and dynamic community of researchers focused on parasitic infections, including genomics, proteomics, imaging, drug research and clinical applications provide outstanding opportunities to establish multidisciplinary collaborative projects. Quebec’s prominent and interactive community of parasitologists, who are members of the Centre for Host- Parasite Interactions, provides attractive possibilities to develop new research linkages. McGill University is an English language institution functioning in a bilingual (French, English) environment. Candidates should forward a CV, summary of research plans and the names of three referees by August 1, 2017 to:

Washington University has support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for research related to elimination and control programs for lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, and soil transmitted helminth infections (see We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on development of improved diagnostic tests for these infections and to participate in applied field research projects in Africa and Asia. The successful applicant will have experience in molecular parasitology and applied field research and be able to work with a diverse group of scientists from different disciplines. Although the position will be based in St. Louis, the job requires extensive international travel to developing countries. For this reason, U.S. Citizenship or permanent residency is greatly preferred to facility foreign travel and reentry into the USA.

Center Director (Upper Midwest Center for Excellence for Vector-Borne Disease):
The Upper Midwest Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Disease (MCE-VBD) is one of five Research Centers of Excellence chosen by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to implement research and training activities related to mosquito and tick-borne disease. The center has secured funding through December 2021. The MCE-VBD mission is to increase the understanding of vectors and vector-borne disease and to improve human health and quality of life through research and training in public health entomology. To accomplish this, the MCE-VBD will coordinate research in mosquito and tick-borne illness, outreach activities, and training opportunities at institutes in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Michigan. The MCE-VBD is based at UW-Madison in the Departments of Entomology and Pathobiological Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), and the School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM), respectively.
