The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is recruiting members to join one of its 13 Institute Advisory Boards (IABs).

IABs are composed of dedicated volunteers from Canada and abroad with a wide range of experience and expertise in various areas related to health, health research, health policy, and lived experience. They provide advice and guidance to CIHR’s institutes. New members will be invited to serve a first term of three years beginning on January 1, 2025. IABs meet at least twice yearly, and members will be reimbursed for travel and accommodation.

Diversity of experience and representation are critical to the success of IABs. We encourage members from all communities to apply, especially those from Indigenous, Francophone and equity-denied communities, LGBTQ2S+ communities, and persons with disabilities. Patients, advocates, and individuals with lived experience are also encouraged to apply.   

 For more information, please visit our CIHR webpage and our Application webpage. Applications will be accepted until April 25, 2024
