Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC) promotes the health of people of diverse sexualities and genders through research and intervention development. CBRC’s core pillars – community-led research, knowledge exchange, network building, and leadership development – position the organization as a thought leader, transforming ideas into actions that make a difference in our communities. CBRC was incorporated in 1999 and is a non-profit charitable organization. Our main office is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, and we also have satellite offices located in Edmonton, Toronto, and Halifax.

CBRC believes in work led by and for the community. As part of our commitment to employment equity, we encourage applications from Indigenous, Black and people of colour (IBPOC) individuals, Two-Spirit people, queer, trans and non-binary people, people living with HIV, people living with Hepatitis C, disabled people, 2SLGBTQQIA+ women, and other people with fabulous and diverse identities and experiences. CBRC acknowledges that not everyone is able to publicly disclose these identities, and we do not expect that employees will disclose this in the course of their work. At CBRC, we recognize that some applicants have experienced barriers to traditional educational and employment opportunities. We consider various combinations of education, employment, volunteer, and lived experience and encourage applicants to highlight these experiences in their cover letter and resume.


While this position is considered permanent (i.e. indeterminate-term), please note that the continuity of all roles is contingent on sustainable funding.

We are seeking a passionate and skilled data analyst to support CBRC’s growing quantitative population health research and community-based research training programs. This includes supporting analytic work for the Sex Now survey with 2S/GBTQ+ men and non-binary people and the Our Health research study for all 2S/LGBTQQIA+ people. This position will work closely with the CBRC Research & Evaluation team, our affiliate university-based researchers, and our community partner organizations across Canada.
