About the Opportunity

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology is welcoming applications for a new academic medical staff position. We are expanding to a Division of 4.8 FTE within the C/AFP (Clinical Academic Funding Plan) in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology. The Division provides gynecologic oncology care primarily for the province of Nova Scotia, which has a population of over 1M, most of whom are rural.

Our primary site is in Halifax with outreach to community centers for clinical care. The group works closely with radiation oncology, pathology, and genetics. We enjoy strong clinical and academic collaboration with ob/gyns, oncology nurse practitioners, and those in general oncologic practice. There are affiliations with basic scientists and epidemiologists as well. Department members participate in medical education and clinically-oriented research. Within our Collective Practice, we are particularly interested in provincial quality of care initiatives to ensure equitable access and delivery of care. We currently work in a Collective Care Clinical Model, and within this is a shared surgical practice. We are looking for a new collaborative team member who is flexible and exhibits innovative thinking.


Applicants require a RCPSC Fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology or equivalent. They should have an interest in pursuing teaching/education and quality of care research within their professional scope. Experience in clinical practice is preferred, as are those with prior output in the quality of care research setting. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, and curriculum vitae, along with a detailed statement of proposed research and statement of teaching interests.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Dalhousie University is committed to fostering a collegial culture grounded in diversity and inclusiveness. The university encourages applications from Indigenous persons (especially Mi’kmaq), persons with a disability, racialized persons, including persons of Black/African descent (especially African Nova Scotians), women, persons of a minority sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and all candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community.

Dalhousie has a COVID-19 vaccine mandate that is currently in place until April 30, 2022. Should the vaccine mandate be re-implemented at a later date, the successful candidate will be required to provide proof of full vaccination, or may seek an accommodation from Dalhousie’s vaccine requirements on grounds protected under provincial human rights legislation.

Community Details

Halifax, the largest urban area in Atlantic Canada and Nova Scotia's capital city, sits in the center of Nova Scotia's east coast and is an important seaport that looks out over one of the world's largest natural harbors.

Halifax is a perfect paradox. We are where land meets sea, old meets new, urban meets rural, and traditional meets trendy. We balance a relaxing pace with modern urban amenities and affordability with world class-experiences. We value our strong historical ties but drive to shake up the norm. This perfect balance makes Halifax one of the best places in the world to visit, no matter what a visitor is looking for: see for yourself in this video!

Nature lovers will find sandy beaches, beautiful gardens, and hiking, birding, and beachcombing. Urbanites can enjoy the symphony, live theater, art galleries, and museums, along with a lively nightlife that includes brewpubs and a great culinary scene.

Central Zone: Halifax, Eastern Shore, and Windsor-West Hants

From the modern yet historic city of Halifax, to the rugged and wild Eastern Shore, this region of Nova Scotia is a compelling study of contrasts. The largest city east of Montreal, Halifax is the cosmopolitan centre, bursting with restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife. But just a short drive (or bike ride) out of the city, the allure of nature envelopes you. Imagine dinner and the theatre at night, surfing and hiking the next morning.
