Concordia University has a long history of high-impact research
and training in a wide array of health areas and is uniquely
positioned to pioneer new approaches to health research and
education through the creation of an interdisciplinary School of
Health (the “School”). The School will unite faculty members at the
intersections of disciplines to collaborate on a range of
health-related approaches and engages citizens, community groups,
policymakers and other stakeholders to further health matters and
expand training capabilities.
The School will focus on and benefit from federating Concordia’s
existing expertise in health research. To promote and enhance
collaboration, the School will consist of three interdisciplinary
research hubs: (1) Community Health; (2) Clinical Research and
Prevention; and (3) Biomedical Science and Engineering. To lead
this exciting new initiative, Concordia is looking for an
international researcher and academic leader in health research as
its inaugural Dean, School of Health.
Reporting to the Provost and Vice-President, Academic and the
Vice-President Research and Graduate Studies, the Dean will provide
strategic direction, academic planning leadership and
administrative oversight to the School.
As a member of Concordia’s senior administration, the Dean will
promote innovative approaches to curriculum development and
delivery, and lead efforts that will enable the School and the
university to achieve the highest standards in education and health
research. Committed to decolonization and Indigenization, the Dean
will ensure sustainable growth and competitiveness, intensify
research output, and develop cross-disciplinary and cross-faculty
