The College of Pharmacy and Nutrition at the University of Saskatchewan invites applications for a tenured Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Plant-based Foods for Nutrition and Health.

The successful candidate will lead an innovative program of research that responds to concerns about global diet trends and need for sustainable sources of protein and nutrient-dense foods to address the persistent problems of malnutrition, e.g. undernutrition, micronutrient deficiency, obesity, and diet-related diseases. The chair’s work will be of interest to multiple disciplines, sectors, and organisations and contribute to building research collaborations and partnerships locally, nationally, and internationally.

Candidates must hold a PhD in nutrition or other relevant field and possess the necessary qualifications to be appointed at the professor or associate professor level.
