The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute’s Centre for Implementation Research in collaboration with the UCL Centre for Behavior Change and the International Collaboration for Transfusion Medicine Guidelines, has an opening for a 2-year Implementation Science Methodologist II with quantitative (survey and trial design) expertise.

Under the supervision of Dr. Justin Presseau, this position will involve the successful candidate leveraging their quantitative expertise and implementation science background to lead research activities in two funded projects. In the 1st project, the candidate will be working closely with clinical practice guideline developers within the International Collaboration for Transfusion Medicine Guidelines (ICTMG) to embed principles of implementation science in the guideline development process to maximize guideline utility and uptake. The methodologist will lead large-scale multi-national theory-informed surveys to identify barriers and enablers to guideline application in clinical practice and to inform selecting tailored guideline implementation strategies. The methodologist will have the opportunity to work closely in shaping the further embedding of implementation science principles in the ICTMG more broadly, including in the development and delivery of materials and workshops. In the 2nd project, the candidate will support using implementation science principles to co-develop (with patients and providers) and evaluate (piloting and mixed-methods evaluation) an implementation intervention to improve end-of-life decision-making through precision medicine approaches applied in retirement homes.

The methodologist would be primarily based in Ottawa at the OHRI, with the opportunity to visit the Centre for Behavior Change at University College London (UK).
