CALL FOR COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDER APPLICATIONS
Cystic Fibrosis Canada is Seeking a Community Stakeholder Representative to Join the Scientific Review Panel
Cystic Fibrosis Canada invites you to apply to participate, as a community stakeholder representative, on our organization’s scientific review panel. This is an opportunity for informed members of the cystic fibrosis (CF) community to play a vital role in the review process by which funding is allocated. Community stakeholders serve as a sounding board, and as a source of advice, with respect to the identification of research proposals that have high relevance to CF.
This year, Cystic Fibrosis Canada is looking to select one non-patient community stakeholder member to serve on the scientific review panel for a term of three years. Please see the Terms of Reference for further details on the role.
Note, there will be a mandatory, formal training session for community stakeholder members via WebEx video conferencing (date to be determined).
Application deadline: Friday, September 14, 2018.
Incomplete and/or late applications will not be considered.
Applicants must submit a completed Community Stakeholder Member Application form and supporting documentation via mail to email@example.com.
The following information must be completed and included in the application package:
- completed application form
- current résumé which includes your current or prior experience in serving on a Cystic Fibrosis Canada committee or Cystic Fibrosis Canada Chapter/Association Executive committee (maximum 2 pages);
- a completed Report Form for Community Stakeholder Members (page 2 of the application form) to record comments on the relevance of the sample project summary (written in lay language) of CF research (page 3 of the application form);
