Working at the CCBR / Living in Toronto
The Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research is a great, collaborative environment. There are many excellent laboratories both in experimental and computational biology. We collaborate extensively both within and outside of the Center.
Toronto is one of the worlds most important centers in biomedical science, rivaling the Boston and Bay Areas (according to Nature), and an ideal location to carry out integrative and collaborative work such as ours. The center for basic research is the University of Toronto, one of the worlds foremost research institutions. The U of T is consistently ranked among the Top 25 Universities in the world ( Reuters Science Watch [13th] / Higher Education Council [11th] / Newsweek [18th] / Academic [24th]).
Toronto is Canada's main economic centre and is also the fifth largest city in North America. It has a truly cosmopolitan feel without being overwhelming. It is the most diverse city in the world, roughly half the population is foreign born. Therefore, there are many vibrant ethnic communities and a great variety of available foods and goods. According to the Economist and other recent surveys, Toronto is one of most livable cities in the world (5th), with a great city life, good infrastructure, high safety and comparatively affordable housing.
