As usual, all of our talented Postdoctoral Fellows have been scooped up by universities but we are pleased they will continue to work with us as Research Affiliates. As a result, we have an opening for a new Postdoctoral Fellow to work on our Indigenous youth wellness through the arts project, Acting Out! But In A Good Way.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will work in a sub-project of a larger project Iyiniw-Oskâtisak Pamihisowak: Using Indigenous Knowledge For A Healthier Aboriginal Youth funded by a Phase 3 Health Research Group Grant from the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF).

Position Description/Responsibilities: The successful candidate will join an established team of Aboriginal health researchers who utilize a mixed-methods approach to research that includes community-based participatory, Indigenous, arts-based, and qualitative approaches. The Postdoctoral Fellow will have an opportunity to hone her or his skills in research by participating in data collection, analysis, and dissemination. The project will also provide the successful candidate with an opportunity to learn about research project management by managing a project at one site. S/he will participate in grant writing and build her or his CV by writing for publication.

Eligibility requirements: Applicants must have completed Ph.D. within 5 years of applying, have knowledge of the issues germane to Aboriginal peoples’ health, and have a demonstrated ability to carry out productive research. Candidates from a wide array of disciplines will be considered. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience working successfully within Aboriginal communities. The successful candidate must have a valid drivers licence and be willing to travel to research sites.
