 The position, located at the Eastern Cereal and Oilseed Research Centre (ECORC), requires scientific innovation and leadership in the area of fungal systematics with a focus on the Ascomycetes causing leaf, stem and seed diseases. The successful candidate will lead multidisciplinary research to improve identification systems for economically relevant plant pathogenic genera and fill critical knowledge gaps relative to quarantine, invasive and mycotoxigenic species. The successful candidate will be expected to provide leadership in resolving taxonomic and nomenclatural issues, enhancing knowledge of Canadian biodiversity and validating existing legacy specimen data, and identifying markers that are suitable for the development of molecular diagnostic tools.
The scientist will work as part of multidisciplinary teams, with mycologists at AAFC and CFIA, with plant pathologists at AAFC, and with the Biodiversity Bioinformatics team at ECORC, and will also collaborate with researchers in universities and industry. The Mycology group at ECORC conducts innovative research in Biosystematics and the Centre houses significant holdings of fungi in the National Collections.
The researcher is expected to manage multiple projects in a multidisciplinary setting requiring collaboration with other scientific teams. The incumbent will be expected to seek internal and external funding and collaborators to support the research program and to effectively manage resources to achieve the desired outcomes. The scientist will directly supervise staff, and may mentor and train postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.
