Multiple Sclerosis Clinical Research Chair

Located on one of Canada’s most beautiful campuses, the University of Saskatchewan is internationally recognized for its contributions to teaching, scholarship, research, and innovation.  There is a strong interest in Multiple Sclerosis research by the people of Saskatchewan since its prairie province has one of the highest MS prevalence rates.  The University of Saskatchewan is an institution on the move; with a growing reputation and high aspirations, the U of S is poised to become one of the country’s pre-eminent research-intensive universities.  A pioneering spirit inspires faculty and students to advance knowledge through research, to seek innovation in teaching and learning, and to find new ways to serve the people of Saskatchewan and the world.

The Saskatchewan MS Clinical Research Chair arose through the combined vision and efforts of the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation, the MS Society of Canada, the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation, the College of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan, and the people of Saskatchewan.  The Chair will build on the strong foundation of the existing program which is known for its national and international collaborations, clinical databases, modern facilities and clinical and research expertise.  The Chair will provide research leadership, vision and innovation into the pathophysiology and care of persons with Multiple Sclerosis in order to enhance the quality of life of those impacted by the disease.

The ideal candidate will be an MD or MD/PhD with an exemplary record of achievement in MS clinical research and have a reputation as a leader whose contributions will have a major impact in the field of Multiple Sclerosis clinical research.  The ability to encourage innovation and collaboration are essential to develop and implement the exciting vision for this role.
