Faculty Positions - Academic and Clinical

MNI Scientists do basic and clinical research, collaborate with clinical colleagues, and train students and fellows in their labs. They hold academic positions at McGill University and teach in a wide range of courses. MNI principal investigators and 200 trainees publish more than 200 articles a year in high impact journals. These outstanding researchers far exceed the national rate of success in securing research grants, and are invited to present their research findings at symposia around the world.  Physicians work in an intellectually stimulating setting, they may do clinical practice exclusively, or combine research with clinical practice. These dedicated professionals develop their expertise in collaboration with research and clinical colleagues, and help to train students and fellows.
