    The Department of Emergency Medicine in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar in Emergency Cardiovascular Epidemiology.

    Job Description:

    Based at the University of Calgary and Foothills Medical Centre, the postdoctoral scholar will work within a dynamic and leading team of collaborators including the Department of Emergency Medicine, Libin Cardiovascular Institute, O’Brien Institute for Public Health and the Alberta Health Services (AHS) Strategic Clinical networks.

    This two year Fellowship will train an emerging leader in knowledge generation, synthesis and translation into clinical practice. The three key areas of focus are: (1) Development and validation of risk prediction tools for patients with symptoms of acute coronary syndromes, including patients with kidney disease for whom standard cardiac troponin assays have reduced accuracy; and (2) Knowledge synthesis of the accuracy of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays in estimating the risk of adverse cardiac outcomes in patients discharged from the emergency department; and (3) Developing and implementing a clinical pathway for emergency department patients with chest pain but low pre-test probability of coronary disease. The postdoctoral scholar will also be encouraged and supported in building their own program of related research.
