Please see below for an opportunity for a Postdoctoral position:

We are seeking to recruit a post-doctoral fellow for the Eyes High Postdoctoral Program (details attached)  for a large CIHR-funded research study, described below. We are reaching out to you today to request your assistance in disseminating our call to your networks or any individuals you know who may be interested in applying to this exciting opportunity.

The Transition Navigator Trial (TNT) is a pragmatic randomized controlled trial evaluating the effectiveness of a patient navigator service versus usual care, to improve transition outcomes among adolescents with chronic health conditions who are transferring to adult specialty care. Eligible patients are adolescents aged 16-21 years old across Alberta who access specialty care through the Alberta Children’s Hospital, The Stollery Children’s Hospital, or Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital and will be transferred to adult specialty care.

For this project, we are collecting quantitative and qualitative data. We are measuring health care use through linkages to AHS administrative data sets, as well differences in transition readiness and self-reported health status using standardized questionnaires. There is the opportunity for a post-doctoral fellow to be involved in analysis of qualitative data such as participant journal entries, navigator notes, and interview data, or to explore related research questions about transition that might be answered by analyzing or gathering new data within the TNT participant cohort.

The TNT is led by Dr. Susan Samuel, Dr. Gina Dimitropoulos, and Dr. Andrew Mackie, and supported by a large team of co-investigators. We are committed to including a post-doctoral fellow as part of this project and supporting an enriching learning opportunity. If you or your colleagues know of any individuals who may be interested in applying, please contact Gina Dimitropoulos at
