The CRC Program requires institutions to collect self-identification data from all applicants, following the program’s best practices. This data is important to UHN’s ability to ensure that researchers from diverse groups are able to benefit from participation in the program. As part of your application, you will be asked to complete a brief Diversity Survey. Responses to all survey questions are voluntary and applicants can log a response indicating that they decline the survey. Any information directly related to you is kept strictly confidential and cannot be accessed by the search committee. Aggregated and anonymized data regarding the applicant pool will be reported only to the chair of the selection committee and the committee’s equity advisor for purposes of program administration and to meet reporting requirements. Applications will only be considered complete once the survey is submitted.
To apply, please visit the UHN Careers website and apply through Posting # 856766.
