Posted on


Four CHÉOS Scientists were officially appointed to faculty positions at the University of British Columbia School of Population and Public Health (SPPH). Drs. Caren Rose, Ehsan Karim, Joseph Puyat, and Wei Zhang were all confirmed as Assistant Professors in August.

The four early-career Scientists join many CHÉOS Scientists who hold faculty positions at SPPH, including Dr. Amy Salmon (Clinical Assistant Professor); Drs. Anne Gadermann (Assistant Professor); Jason Sutherland, Hubert Wong, Eugenia Oviedo-Joekes, and Nick Bansback (Associate Professors); and Mieke Koehoorn, Pattie Spittal, Jim Frankish, Joel Singer, Martin Schechter, and Aslam Anis (Professors). For a full list of SPPH Faculty, see the School’s website.

Congratulations to Caren, Ehsan, Joseph, and Wei!
