The Institute for Education Research supports excellence in health care education through appointments for all stages of a research career. We are bringing a laser focus to researching health care education by providing a hub for research education experts to come together, incubate ideas, and leverage expertise to create a network in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Our membership model welcomes a diverse sample of research-interested professionals and it allows for traditional education science to coexist with scholarship and quality improvement. With a community of researchers, clinicians, educators and trainees, TIER promotes high-quality research competence, brokers new collaborations amongst its members, and supports clinicians to become research collaborators.
Within our three research themes of Technology, Innovation and Simulation; Societies, Systems and Structures; and Teaching, Learning, and Practice, TIER is currently accepting applications for the following appointments:
For individuals who:
Scientists are expected to serve as principal investigators, co-investigators or lead researchers in programs of research that advance knowledge relevant to health professions education. Their productivity must be well-documented through publications in peer-reviewed journals, grants, invitations, awards, etc. This category includes Principal Investigator status with UHN.
For individuals who:
Affiliate Scientists are expected to serve as principal investigators, co-investigators or lead researchers in programs of research that advance knowledge relevant to health professions education. This category included Principal Investigator status with UHN.
This category may include granting PI status if the applicant has an appointment at the University of Toronto, meets the UHN criteria for Principal Investigator, and has a minimum of 30% protected time for research.
TIER recognizes individuals with a staff appointment at UHN who spend a majority of their time dedicated to leading research activities. The Clinician Investigator category recognizes individuals with a staff appointment at UHN who spend a lesser, but still considerable, amount of time leading research activities. The UHN Research appointment as a Clinician Scientist or Clinician Investigator will be made in a manner consistent with the corresponding University academic appointment. The creation of Clinician Scientist and Clinician Investigator appointments will ensure that UHN comprehensively captures and reports on the world-leading advances that are made at the institution, and further build research excellence at UHN.
Applications can be completed using our online application form. All TIER appointment applications will be reviewed by the TIER Appointments Committee and subsequently approved by the TIER Leadership Council within 90 days of receiving your application.
