Position Summary
While pursuing full-time graduate studies or as a RA, the successful applicants will work as research assistants with Drs. Gabriela Novotna, Randy Johner and team members on their SHRF funded project entitled, Access to Recovery for Saskatchewan People with (Dis) Ability and Substance Abuse Issues: From Needs Assessment to Building Capacity.
In this qualitative research development project, Drs. Novotna, Johner and team members seek to identify the research-practice gap in policy and service development related to substance abuse treatment and supports for persons with (dis)ability issues. The overall goal of this project is to provide a synopsis of best practice examples in substance abuse treatment for persons with (dis)ability issues in Canada and internationally. In addition, a collaborative network with policy makers and planners as well as persons with coexisting (dis)ability and substance abuse issues will be built to a) identify the needs in the provincial policy and service development and, b) inform a future research program that would address the identified needs of persons with coexisting (dis)ability and substance abuse issues.
In addition to full-time graduate studies, the successful candidates will be responsible for research assistant activities and administrative duties related to the above-mentioned project as delegated by the co-principle investigators, and support with coordinating activities of project team members. Specific duties will be decided based on applicant’s experience and qualifications.

Successful individuals must be qualified for admission into any Faculty at the University of Regina (as a graduate student); however candidates with previous research assistant experiences will also be considered. Successful individuals will have an interest in health research, ideally with very good computer skills and/or administrative, coordination experience, self-directedness, and ability to work in a team.
If not already a graduate student at the University of Regina, applicants should complete and submit a Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research graduate student online application (at the masters or doctoral level, subject to applicant’s eligibility), available at: http://www.uregina.ca/gradstudies/index.html
