Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on December 6, 2021 in Announcements

ACECHR is a group of Canadian early-career health investigators advocating for funding policies and career development opportunities that would promote a sustainable research workforce and invest in future discovery and innovation in health research. Members of the ACECHR are current (0-5 years in faculty position) or recent (about 5-8 years in faculty position) early career health researchers with an affiliation at a Canadian institution. Early-career investigators (ECIs) or early career researchers (ECRs) are typically assistant professors at research universities and hospitals who have held their positions for 8 years or less. There is no charge for membership.
