The position will support the Legacy for Airway Health (LAH) initiative
(https://www.vchri.ca/legacyforairwayhealth), a unique partnership between UBC and Vancouver Coastal Health. The incumbent will have a unique opportunity to be part of a dynamic and focused effort to apply innovative and interdisciplinary research, with attention to translation and implementation science, in order to advance the mission of reducing the burden of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

This position will emphasize clinical care, with particular focus on a program that addresses the gaps between known best practices and their suboptimal real-world application, with novel methods to overcoming the barriers therein. Experience and competence in clinical trials as well as relevant behaviour change, policy implementation, and/or precision health approaches to leveraging existing data and strategies into applicable real-world care are key assets for the position. The incumbent will be expected to maintain focused clinical activity centred on airways disorders (asthma and/or COPD) that aligns clinical and research interests, and will be expected to build bridges clinically and in research across UBC and Vancouver General Hospital.
