Assistant/Associate Professor in Human Anatomy and Cell Science University of Manitoba Canada


Max Rady College of Medicine, University of Manitoba
Position Number: 27009

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 August 1, 2019 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 application.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree (and/or an M.D. degree) in anatomical or related science, relevant
post-doctoral experience, and possess experience 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 instruction in the laboratory, small group, and large group setting. We are especially interested in candidates that can integrate clinical medicine into their teaching, and are able to teach across a host of medical, dental, and health science programs
(such as dentistry, rehabilitative sciences, physician assistants, pharmacy, and surgical or medical
resident training). Demonstrated experience in anatomical dissection and evidence of anatomy teaching,
which incorporates different methodologies such as 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 would be an asset.

The successful candidate is expected to become a leader in the delivery of dissection and prosection based
gross anatomy and neuroanatomy teaching to a diverse group of trainees within different undergraduate,
graduate, and professional programs across the Faculty of Health Sciences. 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 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 interdisciplinary 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 peer reviewed publication in areas such as
surgical anatomy, medical imaging, functional and morphometric-based anatomy, medical education
programming, 3D anatomy scholarly activities, distance education programs, or an associated field.
The recruit will have (or demonstrate the potential to establish) an innovative and externally funded research
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. 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.
