Endowed Chair in Epilespy Research – Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada
The Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University is pleased to invite applications for the William Dennis Chair in Epilepsy Research. The Chairholder will develop and direct an internationally recognized research program in epilepsy, emphasizing the potential for translation and application to clinical practice. Of equal importance is the ability of the Chair to interact with the broad community both to educate and to increase public awareness and understanding of epilepsy. The Chair will become a leader in efforts to understand the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
This is an outstanding opportunity for a researcher with PhD and/or MD qualifications in research areas including but not restricted to basic science, genetics, epidemiology, outcomes or the behavioral sciences to build a program with strong clinical ties. We wish to attract a talented and energetic leader with an established record in epilepsy research, preferably in Pediatrics. A demonstrated ability to attract external funding and support and to sustain a strong research program is essential. Candidates must be inclusive and collaborative in leadership style and knowledge sharing, and interested in shaping a strategy for epilepsy research, clinical practices and community outreach in the region and beyond.
The successful candidate will receive academic rank and cross appointments commensurate with qualifications and experience. For clinician scientist applicants, the candidate must hold, or be eligible for, a license with the appropriate licensing authority. Postion is a renewable five year term, after Evaluation/Review in 4th year.
Halifax, located on the seacoast of Nova Scotia, and the largest city in Atlantic Canada, boasts a rich diversity of recreational, cultural and educational opportunities.
Application period will close October 1 or until the position is filled. Please send a curriculum vitae, a two-page description of your proposed research program, a brief statement of teaching philosophy, and arrange to have 3 letters of reference (2 of which must be academic) sent under separate cover.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Dalhousie University is an Employment Equity/Affirmative Action employer.
