Postdoctoral Opportunity with CFN










Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow, to coordinate a Network initiative to develop minimum common outcome measures and data elements (COMs/CDEs) with respect to older adults living with frailty. Recent PhD graduates in a research-related discipline are eligible.

In producing evidence to guide care decision, our intent is to maximize utilization of data obtained by standardizing the COMs/CDEs measured in all frailty research and knowledge translation studies. This initiative will include broad consultations with citizens, researchers and clinicians to reach consensus on appropriate COMs/CDEs, using a modified Delphi approach. This project will facilitate the conduct of relevant, generalizable and healthcare-context-interpretable frailty research.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will coordinate this initiative under the direction of the CFN Scientific Director. The successful candidate will be expected to produce high-quality products for publication and CFN use, and will work closely with Assistant Scientific Director Dr. Perry Kim and Research and KT Manager Dr. Amanda Lorbergs, as well as Dr. Muscedere.

The position is a full-time position for a maximum of one year, and is open to Canadian citizens and those holding permanent residency. The successful candidate will be located at CFN’s Administrative Headquarters in Kingston, Ontario, with periodic regional or national travel required.
