The Applied Health Research Centre (AHRC) at St. Michael’s Hospital is currently seeking a Clinical Research Specialist with expertise in qualitative methods for the Observational Epidemiological and Qualitative Research Unit (OEQRU). The Clinical Research Specialist will work closely with Dr. Janet Parsons, Research Scientist, and report directly to the Manager of OEQRU.


The Applied Health Research Centre (AHRC) supports the conduct of clinical research activities using a variety of methodological approaches. The AHRC is staffed by a highly qualified trans-disciplinary research team that is actively engaged in the coordination of many forms of research (e.g. observational, policy, clinical trials), employing a range of methodologies (qualitative and quantitative). The AHRC’s core services include methodological consultation; protocol development; project management, data management, and site management; financial and contract management; clinical monitoring; data analysis, medical writing and knowledge translation initiatives. The clinical research activities take place in various settings at St. Michael’s Hospital, within the University of Toronto environment, and beyond.

Topic areas for the qualitative research team at AHRC are highly varied, encompassing studies focused on clinical issues (e.g. experiences of illness and health care (patients), service provision (practitioners), and policy implementation), social determinants of health and health equity, as well as health policy, and knowledge translation. Qualitative data collection can entail individual interviews, focus groups, observation, as well as arts-based approaches (e.g. visual methods). This position will offer the successful applicant a challenging and rewarding research environment. The primary roles of the Clinical Research Specialist (qualitative methods) are to assist researchers in designing studies and to conduct qualitative data collection and analysis for research purposes. We are seeking an individual with qualitative methods expertise, and are particularly interested in those with skills in in-depth interviewing. Experience with qualitative analysis and report-writing is essential.
