Centre for Community Based Research (CCBR)
The Centre for Community Based Research (CCBR) is an independent, non-profit organization with almost 40 years of experience in community research and evaluation. Our mission is to build communities that are responsive and supportive, especially for people with limited access to power and opportunity. We are looking for an experienced researcher with a strong history of doing community-based, participatory research with Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities, and a demonstrated commitment to social justice. Working as part of a project team and in collaboration with a diverse group of community stakeholders, the researcher will contribute to the design and delivery of multiple research projects.
This is a part-time, temporary position (6-month contract) to start immediately, with a potential for renewal. Applications accepted until December 16, 2021 or until the position is filled. CCBR is based in Waterloo, Ontario. The successful candidate will have the flexibility to work remotely. Proximity to Waterloo will be considered an asset, as in-person meetings are periodically required (a few times per month).
