CFRI at UBC Recruiting Fellows and Trainees

Trainee Opportunities: Graduate Students (M.Sc. & Ph.D.), Post-Doctoral Fellows, and Clinical Fellow Candidates

Do you want to make a difference to children?  If being part of a multi-disciplinary team that pursues excellence in research, bridges clinical practice and leads educational endeavours through innovative strategies sounds appealing to you, this is the place you want to be.

The Division of Translational Therapeutics under the leadership of Dr. Bruce Carleton, and based at the Child & Family Research Institute (CFRI) in Vancouver, BC is seeking trainees in the areas of drug safety, drug effectiveness and drug policy.

We are committed to studying and evaluating drug therapies with the goal of improving human health and quality of life through two specific areas of drug research:

  1. Drug Safety (Pharmacogenomics / Adverse Drug Reactions)
  2. Drug Effectiveness and Cost Management (Population Therapeutics / Pharmacoepidemiology)

As one of the leading research centers in Canada, trainees will be exposed to both the innovative research at the Child & Family Research Institute (CFRI) and the strong academic environment of the University of British Columbia. In these stimulating and complementary surroundings, trainees will have many opportunities for advancement and interdisciplinary professional development. Applicants with a background in pharmacogenomics, clinical pharmacology, medical genetics, experimental medicine, pediatrics, pharmacoepidemiology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, population health, pharmacy, medical anthropology, ethics or any other related fields are encouraged to apply. If interested, please submit a cover letter detailing research interests, curriculum vitae, writing sample and three references to:
