Careers in Radiology

Interventional Radiologist

Posted March 4, 2022

Dalhousie University Department of Radiology and Nova Scotia Health’s QEII Health Sciences Center Department of Diagnostic Imaging is offering a full-time faculty position for an Interventional Radiologist. The candidate will be an addition to an academic practice group of 36 sub-specialized radiologists, 6 of which are interventional radiologists.

The successful candidate will have Royal College Radiology certification and preferably Royal College Interventional Radiology subspecialty certification.  The ideal candidate will have a strong interest and academic track record in education and/or research and a desire to advance the field of Interventional Radiology.  Academic rank will be in accordance with prior achievements.

Interventional radiology work is primarily at the QEII Health Sciences Center (Halifax Infirmary and Victoria General hospitals); however, there is some additional procedure time at the IWK Health Centre, a women’s and children’s hospital. The QEII is the largest adult tertiary care center in Atlantic Canada and is a Level 1 trauma center, 590 bed facility.  The three hospitals are in close walking distance. A large expansion project is underway at the Halifax Infirmary site.

Our practice involves the complete breadth of Interventional Radiology procedures under ultrasound, computed tomography and fluoroscopic imaging guidance. From biopsies and drainages to oncologic and complex vascular angiographic work, we do it all! This year we are on track for over 8,000 procedures. With 3-4 Interventional radiologists doing procedures daily, there is also a mix of IR clinic and diagnostic imaging work in our practice. 

The Halifax Infirmary site has been redeveloped this past year with new IR recover bay, single and biplane units, C-arm room and soon-to-be installed dedicated IR CT. The Victoria General site has a new single plane unit, dedicated IR CT and additional IR C-arm. 

We have a great working relationship with referring services and provide interventional radiology care for patients from around the province and some patients with complex medical care needs throughout the Atlantic region. 

The QEII Health Sciences Centre is the core adult clinical teaching facility for Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Medicine. In addition to residency programs in Diagnostic Radiology, Neuroradiology and Nuclear Medicine, the Department of Diagnostic Imaging offers a variety of fellowship programs. The Department is affiliated with the Biomedical Translational Imaging Centre (BIOTIC), a lab conducting research in high field strength magnetic resonance imaging, and preclinical imaging devices and techniques.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. The prospective start date will be July 1, 2022. 

Interested individuals should send a letter of interest and their curriculum vitae to:
