Position Description:
The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology is a large multi-site department with over 100 full and part time faculty located at two fully-affiliated teaching hospitals, and at community teaching hospitals and distributed education sites. The department provides leading edge women’s health care through clinical excellence, innovative research, and effective educational strategies. Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) Faculty members hold almost $300 million in research funding; FHS is third overall in national research rankings, driving McMaster’s ranking as Canada’s most research-intensive, medical doctoral university. FHS enjoys close relationships with its academic hospital partners, as well as strong collaborations with researchers in Canada and around the world. We have an unwavering commitment to collaboration, diversity, inclusivity and equity, strategic partnerships, innovation and excellence, cultural competency and safety, accountability, and integrity.

The Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, jointly with the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact is seeking an experienced MD PHD with training and experience in obstetrics, gynecology, and research methodology. A focus in Medical disorders in pregnancy – especially cardiac disease, venous thromboembolism and obesity, patient-centered care, mixed-methods research, and incorporation of patient preferences into obstetrical decision-making, intrapartum care, labour induction and prevention of postpartum haemorrhage – is an asset.

Located at Hamilton Health Sciences – McMaster Site, the Division offers tertiary care in Maternal and Fetal Medicine for the City of Hamilton, LHINs 3, 4 (Waterloo Wellington, Hamilton Niagara, Haldimand and Brant) and the Halton Healthcare portion of LHIN 6. This is a referral base of approximately 30,000 deliveries per year. Applicants should have successfully completed subspecialty training in Maternal Fetal Medicine and be certified (or eligible for certification) by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and must be licensed (or eligible for licensure) to practice medicine in the Province of Ontario. The successful candidate will be expected to be part of the current group of 7 full time MFM subspecialists. They should be able to fully function as a MFM sub-specialist in the full spectrum of the specialty, including pregnancy care, prenatal diagnosis and fetal ultrasound.

This is a full-time faculty position for a period of three years (renewable). Academic rank will be commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience. The candidate’s primary appointment will be within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology with a joint appointment to the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact.
The proposed split of the time commitment for the candidate will be 75% protected research time, 20% clinical service and 5% administration.

The selected candidate will possess documented skills in clinical research, have a strong track record of research and scholarly achievement, documented experience in supervising PhD students, and track record of successful collaborative research. The successful applicant will develop and maintain an internationally competitive research program and cultivate an intellectual community of graduate students. In addition to fostering local, national, and international collaborations, the successful applicant will be expected to collaborate with McMaster Scientists and clinicians to, build complementary translational epidemiological and outcomes research capacity, and engage with Clinicians and researchers within the Department so as to enable short- and/or long-term clinical translation of their research. This work will support and sustain the collegial atmosphere within the Faculty, and to help realize the Faculty’s and University’s commitment to the goals of equity, diversity, and inclusivity.

Tier 2 Canada Research Chairs, tenable for five years and renewable once, are intended for exceptional emerging researchers (i.e., candidates must have been an active researcher in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination) acknowledged by their peers as having the potential to lead in their field. Tier 2 nominees must:

- have demonstrated the potential to achieve international recognition in their fields in the next five to ten years;
• as chairholders, have the potential to attract, develop and retain excellent trainees, students and future researchers; and
• be proposing an original, innovative research program of high quality.

Candidates who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree and who have had career breaks, such as maternity, parental, or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc., may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 Justification process.
