The Institute for Health and Social Policy is committed to equity and diversity in recruitment. We highly encourage applications from Indigenous peoples, visible minorities, women, people with disabilities, people of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and those who are the first generation of their family to attend post-secondary studies. Please indicate in your application if you would like this to be considered for equity recruitment.
