How do I become an ICES Adjunct Scientist?
ICES Adjunct Scientists are an integral part of the organization as they increase the breadth and depth of ICES research. ICES Adjunct Scientists are independent researchers with a university academic appointment who have experience using administrative data to conduct health services research. ICES Adjunct Scientists enjoy access to all of the ICES data holdings and the value-added by ICES faculty and staff over the many years of experience using these data. ICES Adjunct Scientists are appointed to the ICES research program which best fits their interests and, as such, become members of a network of health services researchers from across Ontario.
ICES Programs and their Faculty Leaders are:
Cancer: David Urbach, MD, MSc, FRCSC
Cardiovascular and Diagnostic Imaging: Jack Tu, MD, MSc, PhD, FRCPC
Chronic Disease and Pharmacotherapy: Michael Paterson, MSc
Health System Planning and Evaluation: Astrid Guttmann, MDCM, MSc
Kidney, Dialysis and Transplantation: Amit Garg, MD, FRCPC, PhD
Primary Care and Population Health: Rick Glazier, MD, MPH, CCFP, FCFP
All initial Adjunct Scientist appointments at ICES are probationary. Applications must include:
- A ‘one pager’ outlining the nominee’s research plans for working with ICES data and staff during the first 3 years
- A current curriculum vitae
- A nominated mentor who is an ICES Scientist. A letter from the nominee’s mentor outlining the support that will be provided to the probationary appointee is to be included in the application package
A completed Conflict of Interest Declaration Form. Please review ICES’ Conflict of Interest Policy.
Access to ICES resources is on a cost-recovery basis. Applications are reviewed by the Program Leaders Committee where a majority vote determines the decision.
