  • Canada, The Telfer School of Management (TSM) at the University of Ottawa and the University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) are seeking applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Managing AI-driven Technologies for Cardiac Care. The selected candidate will hold a tenure-track faculty position and will explore the organizational implications of the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare, with a particular focus on its use for improving cardiac patient care. The research conducted by the Chair holder is expected to focus on the way in which AI can create value for patients, clinicians, and institutions and the organizational and practical implications surrounding its implementation.

The Chair holder is expected to teach in the Telfer School programs and conduct research of relevance for healthcare management practice in the context of AI-driven technologies. Research agenda The research agenda of this interdisciplinary Canada Research Chair draws from relevant fields such as applied AI, operations research, information systems, or health informatics to answer the following broad questions: How can AI-driven clinical and administrative tools provide value to the healthcare organizations? How can AI-driven technologies improve patient care? How can healthcare organizations leverage the opportunities presented by AI-driven technologies to transform health systems in a post-COVID 19 context? While research conducted by the Chair will be in collaboration with UOHI, results need to be scaled up to other settings and contexts.   Preferential Hiring: The University of Ottawa is committed to ensuring equity, diversity and inclusion in the scholarly and leadership environments of our students, staff, and faculty.
