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:
Academy Research Trainee
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.
