Job: Professor of Health Law at Dalhousie

Dalhousie University, Schulich School of Law
MacBain Chair in Health Law and Policy

The MacBain Chair in Health Law and Policy, named after Arthur Allister MacBain (LL.B. 1951) and established in 2011, was created through the generous support of the McCall MacBain Foundation.

We invite applications for a tenure-track or tenured appointment to the MacBain Chair in Health Law and Policy at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor, to commence July 1, 2012. The term for the chair is five years and is renewable. The appointment is subject to budgetary approval. Applications received before September 30, 2011 will be given the fullest consideration.

The Faculty seeks applications from exceptional scholars in the field of health law and policy. The chair holder will provide intellectual leadership at the law school and with Dalhousie’s Health Law Institute, and will be actively engaged in projects that seek to have an impact in the health law field locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. The chair holder is expected to contribute to teaching and supervision at both the J.D. and graduate levels.

The Faculty of Law is already home to a Tier 2 CRC in Health Law in addition to Dalhousie’s Health Law Institute. The addition of the MacBain Chair in Health Law and Policy is expected to make Dalhousie the leader in health law and policy research in Canada and place us among a small number of academic institutions with international impact in this field.
