Pediatric Neurologist

Pediatric Neurologist

Dalhousie University & IWK Health Centre

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The Division of Neurology, in the Department of Pediatrics at Dalhousie University and the IWK Health Centre, invite applications for a full-time Pediatric Neurologist at the assistant, associate or full professor level.  The individual will join a team of 4 neurologists. The physician will primarily provide clinical service across the full spectrum of pediatric neurology. 

The successful candidate will be expected to participate in research and/or teaching activities in an academic environment; a developed interest in either would be considered an asset, but a previous academic appointment is not a requirement.  Divisional members provide neurological care for the children/youth of the Maritime provinces (population approximately 1.9 million). The successful candidate will be expected to participate in the on-call coverage for general pediatric neurology.

Academic qualifications include an MD (or equivalent) and board certification in Pediatric Neurology (Canadian FRCPC or eligibility).  Eligibility for medical licensure in the province of Nova Scotia is essential.

Dalhousie University and the neighboring IWK Health Centre are located in the heart of Halifax , a growing, cosmopolitan port city and the capital of Nova Scotia. We are fortunate to be surrounded by the natural beauty of the Atlantic Ocean, trails, lakes and farmland. All of this and the low cost of living, makes Nova Scotia one of the most enjoyable places to live in Canada.

Applications will be accepted until June 14, 2021   

To apply for this position, please go to:

Applications must include a cover letter, CV, teaching statement, research statement and a list of three referees (two of which must be academic and include one from a Program Director if a graduate in the past 5 years).
