ASSISTANT/ ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN ANATOMY & CELL SCIENCE
MAX RADY COLLEGE OF MEDICINE, UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA
Position Number 29008
The Max Rady College of Medicine (housed within the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences) at the University of Manitoba is seeking applications for a full‐time tenured or tenure track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor within the Department of Human Anatomy & Cell Science (HACS). The position will commence October 1, 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The successful candidate will possess an outstanding commitment to teaching and research excellence in the fields of GROSS ANATOMY and NEUROANATOMY, with a significant emphasis on clinical anatomy. Applicants must have a doctoral degree (and/or an M.D. degree) in anatomical or related science, relevant post-doctoral experience, and possess extensive experience in teaching human gross anatomy and neuroanatomy in a clinically oriented manner to students enrolled in medicine and/or health professional programs. Candidates must demonstrate a willingness to contribute to anatomical instructions in laboratory, small group, and large group settings. We are especially interested in candidates that can integrate clinical medicine into their teaching, and are able to teach across a host of health science programs (including medicine, dentistry, rehabilitative sciences, physician assistants, pharmacy, and surgical or medical resident training). Demonstrated experience in anatomy teaching, which incorporates different methodologies such as anatomical dissection, case-based learning, problem-based learning, technology-assisted learning, online learning, and “flipped” classroom is required. Additional experience in course administration, curriculum development, models of online learning, 3D anatomy, and/or assisting with surgical skills workshops are an asset.
The successful candidate is expected to become a leader in the delivery of clinical dissection and clinical procedural gross anatomy and neuroanatomy teaching to advanced trainees in the health professions. Participation in educational programs for diverse groups of trainees within different undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs across the Faculty of Health Sciences is essential for this position. The department of HACS is currently expanding its postgraduate and clinical anatomy educational streams. The successful candidate will take a lead role in the development of new gross anatomy and neuroanatomy learning modules, and in the training and mentorship of undergraduate medical students and medical residents completing their clinical anatomy training and research programs and/or specialized anatomy training.
The department’s main teaching lab has recently undergone a major 4.3 million dollar renovation and now includes dedicated research space for conducting cadaveric-based biomedical and applied clinical anatomy research. We are especially interested in candidates who possess a strong track record of high quality scholarly research leading to high impact peer-reviewed publication in areas such as surgical anatomy, medical imaging, functional and morphometric-based anatomy, medical education programming, 3D anatomy, distance education programs, or an associated field. The recruit will have (or demonstrate the potential to establish) an innovative and externally funded research and/or educational program that is capable of engaging in broad collaborations with colleagues from the basic sciences, clinical departments, and/ or the educational technology sector at the University and/ or the private sector. Their program of research will strengthen HACS’s capacity to conduct interdisciplinary biomedical and applied clinical anatomy research. The candidate must have demonstrated the ability to work in a collaborative research and/or clinical environment, and have experience in supervising (or demonstrate the potential for supervising) graduate students at the Masters and PhD level.
The University of Manitoba is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from women, racialized persons, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, persons of all sexual orientations and genders, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
