Chris is ecstatic and deeply honoured to announce that he is the new Margaret and Wallace McCain Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Mount Allison University, which is located in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada.
The Margaret and Wallace McCain Postdoctoral Fellowship was created at Mount Allison in 1993. This endowment typically rotates through various departments within the university for intervals of 1-2 years. Exact duties of the Fellow vary depending on which department holds the endowment at any given time, but in general, the Fellow contributes to teaching within the department, as well as participates in research along with other faculty members.
Mount Allison University is a primarily undergraduate Canadian university. Two departments offer the opportunity to pursue a Master of Science program: Biology, and Chemistry and Biochemistry. In its primarily undergraduate category, Mount Allison has consistently been ranked first or second in the country for the past 20 years by Maclean’s magazine.
In the first year of his two-year fellowship, Chris will be teaching two fourth-year Biochemistry courses: Immunochemistry (BIOC 4011) in the Fall semester, and Signal Transduction (BIOC 4031) in the Winter semester. Chris will also be engaging in intensive research throughout his fellowship.
