Our small but committed headquarters staff work tirelessly to ensure that our projects run smoothly and that every dollar that is donated to our research initiatives through the Terry Fox Foundation is going towards funding innovative projects that are changing the way cancer is researched and treated.

The following employment opportunities are open. Researchers, clinicians or trainees are advised to contact partner institutions directly regarding career opportunities within their specific discipline or field of research.

The Terry Fox Research Institute is seeking a highly motivated, collaborative, and analytical professional who will lead the development of data policies, processes, guidelines, and operations to support key TFRI initiatives and programs including the Digital Health and Discovery Platform and the Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network.

The Digital Health and Discovery Platform (DHDP.ca) is a scalable, multi-use platform to digitally-enable national and international collaboration to advance next-generation precision medicine technologies. The DHDP is co-led with Imagia, an artificial intelligence healthcare company, and funded from the Government of Canada’s Strategic Innovation Fund Stream 4 program. The DHDP will apply state-of-the-art data governance principles and technology to transform collaborative research and stimulate commercialization from home grown research discoveries.

The Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network is a bold vision led by The Terry Fox Research Institute and The Terry Fox Foundation with support from dozens of research and funding partners across Canada including a $150M investment from the Government of Canada. Its goal is to accelerate the adoption of Precision Medicine for cancer through the creation of a pan Canadian network of designated cancer centres. This network represents a powerful collaborative platform that will embed research in the cancer clinic, uniting the top-tier cancer researchers and clinicians in Canada and allowing them to share their data - treatments and outcomes – to deliver the best outcomes for each patient in the collective pursuit of curing cancer.

Reporting to the Chief Data Officer, in close collaboration with the Executive Director, the Data Governance Manager will lead and support collaborative initiatives, leverage best practices, provide thought leadership over health data’s entire lifecycle, and work with key partners to build robust yet progressive deliverables that enable effective and responsible sharing of high quality data.  This role will also develop and deliver data governance frameworks and associated policies, procedures and agreements that support TFRI programs.

 

The Terry Fox Research Institute is seeking a strategic leader who is highly motivated, collaborative and solution oriented to develop strategic plans and mobilize stakeholders to support strategic priorities, achieve organizational success and help our organization realize the TFRI mission. We are looking for someone who can move beyond communicating a vision to fully understanding, thinking about, planning and executing the necessary strategies to realize it. The candidate must be at ease in aligning processes, resources-planning and program goals with overall strategy.

This position leads both the development and support of implementation and program management strategies for key TFRI initiatives including the Digital Health and Discovery Platform (DHDP) and the Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network (MOHCCN), as well as key stakeholder initiatives and thought leadership projects.

The DHDP is a scalable, multi-use platform to digitally-enable national and international collaboration to advance next-generation precision medicine technologies.
