The Research Analyst will conduct study activities in compliance with all applicable regulatory and legislative requirements, including Research Ethics Board (REB) and CAMH Research Quality and Regulatory Affairs requirements. You will support a healthy workplace that embraces diversity, encourages teamwork and effective communication. These positions are located at 80 Workman Way.
