Call for Applications--Junior Faculty Buyout Program

The Centre for Urban Health Initiatives is pleased to announce a call for applications for their Junior Faculty Buyout Program.

Submission Deadline: April 28th, 2006

The Centre for Urban Health Initiatives (CUHI) is a Canadian urban
health research centre located at the University of Toronto. CUHI
facilitates research that examines how the social and physical
conditions in cities affect the health of the people who live
there.  In close partnership with the Wellesley Central Health
Corporation, our mission is to work with policy makers, community
partners and academics to make great urban health research
happen--research that leads to social change and policy practice.  

Setting and guiding the research agenda at CUHI are three Research
Interest Groups (RIGs): Food and Health RIG, Physical Environments and
Health RIG, and Neighbourhoods and Health RIG. These groups are
committed to carrying out research in partnership with policy-makers
and local communities.   

One way in which CUHI supports this research is through our Junior
Faculty Buyout program.  The goal of this program is to provide
release time to a junior faculty member so that they may be able to
devote a greater proportion of their time to furthering their research
agenda and to making a contribution to CUHI.

Complete details, including Eligibility, Conditions of Support,
Application Procedures and Forms are available online at
