CIHR – Recruitment of College Chairs for the College of Reviewers

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is launching a call for Expressions of Interest to fill up to fourteen College Chair positions – the most prestigious leadership opportunity within the College of Reviewers.

The role of the College Chairs is to ensure that the College of Reviewers membership base succeeds in selecting the most innovative and cutting-edge health research proposals, while being fair, well-managed, and transparent. College Chairs will work in collaboration with the CIHR Chief Scientific Officer to recruit and oversee the peer reviewer membership base and to provide the strategic guidance needed to build the College of Reviewers into an internationally recognized resource. They will also advise on frameworks, policies, and processes to ensure they are optimally designed to achieve the highest peer review quality.

College Chairs will be recognized in Canada and throughout the world as leaders in their field, and collectively possess research and knowledge translation expertise that spans the breadth of the Canadian health research enterprise. As well, they will bring extensive experience in peer review that they have gained in organizations in Canada and abroad, and a demonstrated commitment to advancing peer review excellence.

The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest is March 7, 2016. For more information, please contact
