THE GRADUATE PROGRAM IN SOCIOLOGY

 

ANNOUNCES THE

 

2016-2017

 

CIHR Doctoral competition

http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/193.html

 

Complete applications must be submitted online no later than September 29, 2015.

For those who are not aware, CIHR is Canada's federal funding agency for health research. Under their mandate, many health-related proposals should be adjudicated through them and NOT through SSHRC.

Guidelines for the Eligibility of Applications Related to Health
New guidelines regarding subject matter eligibility for health-related research came into effect in 2009. The following are considerations when preparing or assessing the eligibility of the subject matter of applications related to health:

Investigators whose proposed research is health-related should consult CIHR’s mandate first to explore eligibility. CIHR has policies and procedures in place to adjudicate the full range of social science and humanities research proposals related to health research. Research eligible under the mandate of CIHR will not be considered by SSHRC.
The use of social science or humanities theories, methodologies and hypotheses is, in and of itself, not sufficient to make a proposal eligible at SSHRC.

Ineligible for SSHRC Support
Social science or humanities research that is primarily intended to improve and/or increase knowledge of health (including mental health), health care and health-care systems in Canada or internationally is not eligible for support from SSHRC. Examples of ineligible research include:

socio-economic and cultural determinants of health, including theoretical and empirical research on the social construction of health, sickness and health behaviour;
health promotion (e.g., healthy eating, disease prevention, health and sexual education);
education and psychology research related to health service delivery (e.g., clinical/practical competencies, supervision, curriculum development);
health behaviour (e.g., fitness, psychomotor learning, psychophysiology and kinesiology; addictions, sexual activities, etc. as they affect health status);
clinical research (e.g., treatment, prevention or diagnosis of a condition, disorder or disease; testing or evaluating the impact of interventions, medication or medical aids);
therapy (e.g., counselling, interventions, psychotherapy, rehabilitation, speech and occupational therapy, validation/testing of diagnostic tools), including the use of performing/visual arts as an element of therapy;
knowledge translation research related to health (e.g., research that informs health policy, treatment and/or services);
health policy, management and law (e.g., care practices and service provision, training of health professionals, access to and quality of care, cost management in health care, liability of practitioners, health insurance, health record systems, evaluation of health programs and/or services);
public health (e.g., workplace, food and water safety and security as they affect health status); and
humanities perspectives on health, including health ethics.
