Call for Applications: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Community-based Health Equity Research

We are pleased to announce a call for applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship position in the School of Public Health & Social Policy at the University of Victoria (Canada) under the direct supervision of Dr. Nathan Lachowsky as part of his Community-based Health Equity Research (CHER) team. This position full-time for up to 2 years (with possibility for extension) and can start as soon as possible. Remote working arrangements within Canada are possible. This position is associated with our CIHR-funded mixed methods Administrative Health Data Linkage study, with the opportunity to collaborate and support other projects of the CHER team. This Postdoctoral Fellowship is an opportunity to learn, apply, and lead quantitative and mixed methods approaches within the context of community-based research studies.

Dr. Lachowsky has a vibrant and dynamic program of research focused on community-based health equity research. Our team focuses on empowerment of and social justice for marginalized communities such as 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, Indigenous people and ethnoracialized minorities, and those living with and affected by HIV, Hep C, and STIs. We’re looking to support enthusiastic folks from the diverse communities that we work with. We believe that no research about these communities should be developed without the communities in question being involved every step of the way. “Nothing about us, without us”. As a research environment, our School of Public Health and Social Policy values social justice, Indigenous knowledges, interdisciplinarity, health equity, and ethical professional conduct.
