REPORTS TO  Principal Investigator

The Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute of Mount Sinai Hospital, a University of Toronto affiliated research centre, is one of the world's leading centres in biomedical research.  With ground-breaking discoveries in research areas such as diabetes, genetic disorders, cancer and women’s and infants’ health, the Institute is committed to excellence in health research and the training of young investigators.  Strong partnerships with the clinical programs of Mount Sinai Hospital ensure that scientific knowledge is used to promote human health.  Your significant contributions will assist in maintaining our momentum in advancing our research.


The Bridgepoint Collaboratory for Research and Innovation is the health services research arm of the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute at Sinai Health System (fully-affiliated with the University of Toronto). With ground-breaking discoveries and innovative research in areas such as diabetes, genetic disorders, complexity, and health system design, the LTRI is committed to excellence in health research and the training of young investigators. Partnerships with clinical programs across Sinai Health System ensure that new scientific knowledge is used to promote enhanced health and well-being.

The Collaboratory is leading a new field of study strategically designed to respond to one of the most pressing areas of need for healthcare research in Ontario, Canada and the world: examining ways to improve the care and the entire life experience of patients living with complex chronic health conditions. As a new recruit, your significant contributions will assist in maintaining momentum toward advancing our research mission.


Health systems globally are undergoing rapid transformation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Among these shifts has been the dramatic shift towards adopting a digital-first approach to delivering primary care services – a shift that may very likely be here to stay. The Digital Trust-Building project seeks to understand the how trust-based relationships are built through different technologies used in primary care. Can strong relationships needed for quality care delivery be built in an entirely virtual environment? We’re hoping to find out. 

The Research Coordinator will work closely with the Principal Investigator of this project providing overall coordination of study activities. Activities will likely include: literature reviews, ethics applications, recruitment, support with qualitative data collection and analysis, follow-up with participants, supporting writing and editing reports and manuscripts, and working with funding agencies as required. The coordinator will also support knowledge translation and network activities including coordinating an end of project workshop which will include: scheduling, booking spaces and food (if in-person is available), preparing materials, and engaging with local and international stakeholders.

While the position will primarily support the Digital Trust-Building project, there will be opportunities to engage in other active projects supervised by the Principal Investigator related to digital health, implementation, and integrated care delivery. The position will work primarily remotely, and then, once in-person work is safe and allowed, be based out of the Bridgepoint site in Toronto, ON. Fully remote work for the entire duration of the project can be discussed.

  • Ethics application(s) to relevant boards

  • Distribution and oversight of participant honoraria

  • Coordinating the end of study workshop including: scheduling, acting as the primary contact for stakeholder participants, managing the activities of the day whether virtual or in-person (if in-person this will require booking and managing the space and refreshments for the participants; if virtual this will involve ensuring participants can connect to the virtual environment).
  • Prepare and help write reports and manuscripts for publication
