Equity and diversity are essential to research and academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or a person who identifies as First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous. CHÉOS/CTN welcomes a broad range of applicants, and accommodations are available for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
CHÉOS is an interdisciplinary collective founded to pursue excellence in health outcomes research. We produce and translate high-quality research evidence to inform health care and health outcomes and provide a wide range of support services for health outcomes research and clinical trial studies.
CHÉOS is also home to the CTN National Centre. The CTN is a Canada-wide collaborative and inclusive network committed to generating knowledge on the prevention, treatment, and management of HIV, other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections and more recently, COVID-19 research through clinical studies and trials.
CHÉOS and the CTN are seeking a resourceful and collaborative Grant Coordinator to join our grant facilitation team. The Grant Coordinator will guide the grant submission process, from researching, writing, and coordinating the preparation and submission of proposals to related administrative support. The ideal candidate is a skilled written and verbal communicator, a highly organized self-starter, and is team-focused. This position will engage with a growing multidisciplinary team, including physicians, epidemiologists, research staff and trainees. Experience with grant facilitation and project management is a valuable asset.
Reports to the Director of Grants and Research Development, CHÉOS/CTN.
This position does not include supervision of other staff.
Consequence of Error/Judgement
Tact, diplomacy, and a high degree of judgement and initiative are required to deliver effective grant support. Errors in the performance of the above-related duties could significantly impact the effectiveness of funding applications and the financial status of CHÉOS/CTN. Inappropriate judgment could result in loss of potential research and/or infrastructure opportunities or cause damage to the Centre and the Network’s reputations.
CHÉOS/CTN staff are largely working from home while COVID-19 protocols for physical distancing remain in place. The position is typically based at CHÉOS, located in St. Paul's Hospital, with the incumbent being provided appropriate workspace. Travel to meetings and conferences may be required from time to time.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
We thank all applicants for their interest in this position. Only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
