The University of Manitoba (UM), located in the multi-cultural and vibrant city of Winnipeg, is the province of Manitoba’s primary research-intensive institution, and offers over 100 degree, diploma and certificate programs to more than 30,000 students from around the world.

The Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, invites applications for recruitment of a PhD Clinician Scientist to University of Manitoba and the Bowman Chair in Pediatrics and Child Health to build multidisciplinary collaborations in research. The Chair will be a part-time position, and the incumbent will be expected to continue with their clinical practice; a secondment to the University for Chair duties may be possible. The exact percentage of the position will be determined in consultation with the successful applicant. The position start date will be February 1, 2019 or as soon thereafter as possible. The appointment will be at a salary and rank commensurate with qualifications and experience. The University of Manitoba offers good working conditions and a competitive salary.

The Department of Pediatrics and Child Health and the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM) are collaborating to recruit an excellent and well connected Clinician Scientist to the Chair position. The ideal candidate is starting to mid-career and has a strong affinity with research in child health, rehabilitation, nursing or comparable. They have a strong focus on knowledge translation, with evidence of research outcomes finding their way to clinical practice. They show evidence of leadership capacity and multidisciplinary collaborations. They have a strong affinity with the quality improvement and research in the clinical environment and are clinically active. They show expertise in the use of diverse research designs, proven fundability by national granting agencies, and a promise for innovative collaborations on a provincial and national level.

The Chair in Evidence Based Medicine will reside in CHRIM and is aimed to position the University of Manitoba as a strong partner in translational research efforts. The Chair holder will support research and training that aims to enhance the competitiveness of the University of Manitoba at national and international peer reviewed funding agencies. The Chair will contribute significantly to the body of scholarship in Child Health research and promote a program that can translate to the improved health of children and youth. The Chair will provide mentorship and opportunities for young investigators. The Chair will develop and maintain critical intramural and extramural links and collaborations that serve to promote research at the University of Manitoba. The initial term of appointment to the Chair will be five years. Renewal is subject to a successful review of performance within the context of the University’s research strategy.

We encourage applications from candidates having a PhD or equivalent. Priority will be given to candidates who are non-MD and are currently clinically active.
