TENURE TRACK PROFESSOR IN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF SPECIES ASSOCIATED WITH FOREST ECOSYSTEMS, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue. Application deadline: November 30th, 2018.

The Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) is a human sized institution that operates primarily in Abitibi- Témiscamingue, in the Nord-du-Québec region, in the Hautes-Laurentides region and with aboriginal communities. For more than a quarter of a century, UQAT has distinguished itself on several levels: teaching, research and creation, and service to the community. Thanks to its recognized expertise, UQAT plays an increasingly significant role not only at the regional scale, abut also at the provincial, national and international scales. The university’s unique development model builds on partnerships in all its territories and thus ensures accessibility to university training. UQAT has been able to develop in several fields in which it is now renowned: creation and new media, human and social development, education, forests, engineering, management, mining and the environment, health and aboriginal communities.

Since the creation of UQAT, forest research has always been part of the institution’s development plans. Strategic developments, including a partnership with UQAM, have enabled the establishment of a critical mass of interdisciplinary experts in ‘’ecology and sustainable forest management’’ and in ‘’valorisation, characterisation and transformation of wood’’. Consequently, UQAT has a well-established reputation in training, research and technology transfer in forest research, an expertise that is now recognised across Quebec, Canada and the international community. With the creation of the Forest Research Institute (IRF) in 2011, UQAT developed a structure that increases its contribution to forest science and technology. To date, the IRF relies on a team of ten researchers, two Industrial Chairs, two Canada Research Chairs, several specialised laboratories, and an extensive network of partnerships locally and around the world. The Institute attracts over $ 3 million annually in research, publishes more than 50 articles per year in recognised scientific journals, contributes to the training of a large contingent of highly qualified personnel, and is well known for a commitment to technology transfer as it organises a large number of dissemination activities. Renewed in 2014, the NSERC-UQAT-UQAM Industrial Chair in Sustainable Forest Management confirms the importance of developing and implementing innovative strategies and practices for ecosystem-based sustainable forest management. The IRF is active in both Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Nord-du-Québec, with significant spin- offs for Québec and Canadian society as a whole.
