L’Université de Sherbrooke and the Department of Obstetrics-gynecology of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences invites application for a full-time position as a Research professor. This is a full-time professor tenure track position.

The sought candidates must have a training in physiology, pharmacology and/or biochemistry. Their research expertise must complement the Department skills and current research themes. Hence, special consideration will be given to candidates with a focus of investigation in the physiology and pathophysiology of membrane interface or lipid signaling related to perinatology.

The basic, applied and clinical research is a strength of the institution. The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the Université de Sherbrooke has a first-class reputation for its constant adaptation to the changing needs of the society and the success of its world-class research teams. It internationally shines as the only Faculty in Canada, and the only francophone Faculty in the world, to be designated as a collaborating center of the World Health Organization for health training.

The Department of Obstetrics-gynecology was created in 1968 and is composed of about twenty full-time professors, two fundamentalist researchers and support staff.
The Department is structured into 4 divisions: Fertility and endocrinology of reproduction, Fetal-maternal medicine, Obstetrics-gynecology and Gynecological oncology.
For several years, its Research subdivision has been improved by the recruitment of clinician researchers. The Department believes in the importance of a diverse team, that includes scientists, to improve the supervision and training of medical students and residents.

The University is committed to making a priority of these values as strategic factors of excellence. This commitment is stated in the University’s Plan d’action d’équité pour les programmes interorganismes (2017–2022). The University invites all qualified individuals to apply, in particular, women, members of visible and ethnic minorities, Aboriginal peoples, and persons with disabilities under the Programme d’accès à l’égalité en emploi (PAEE).

Moreover, the selection tools can be adapted, with an assurance of complete confidentiality, to the needs of persons with disabilities who so request. The University also encourages individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities to apply. Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
