Postdoctoral Fellowship in Eating Disorders

We are currently looking for a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship available in Multidisciplinary Research in Eating Disorders.

The candidate will work on research projects related to early risk factors and biological mechanisms of eating disorders, as well as the interaction between biological predisposition and sociocultural factors.

The fellow will have the opportunity to setup and conduct empirical studies involving clinical and at-risk populations, as well as to analyze data from previously collected longitudinal community samples and write up findings. Research methods include neuroimaging, psychophysiological procedures, (epi)genetic analyses and/or cognitive-behavioural assessments. The research fellow will be affiliated to both Concordia University and the CHU Sainte-Justine.

Candidates must have a PhD. in a pertinent field (e.g., Psychology, Psychiatry, Clinical Neuroscience, etc.), excellent statistical knowledge and computational skills, and experience administering mental health assessments. Being able to multitask and integrate into our multidisciplinary team are essential skills for the position. Proficiency in English, both written and spoken, is required. Knowledge of French is an asset.

Potential fellows with a background in statistics/bio-informatics and who are interested in acquiring experience with longitudinal and clinical, biological and behavioural data-sets are also encouraged to apply.

Responsibilities include coordinating studies, supervising undergraduate students and research assistants, collecting and analyzing data, writing manuscripts as well as knowledge dissemination.

Eligible candidates do not currently hold another appointment with Concordia University. They will be recruited preferably from universities other than Concordia, and are compliant with Concordia University’s Postdoctoral Policy. The starting date is flexible, but ideally should be before July 1st, 2022.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Early Exposure to Environmental Contaminants and Child Development

The postdoctoral fellowship is embedded in the longitudinal study Maternal-Infant Research on Environmental Chemicals (MIREC). This research platform is based on a pan-Canadian pregnancy cohort that has as goal to examine the effects of prenatal exposure to environmental chemicals on the health of pregnant women and their offspring. The cohort children are still followed-up to this day to characterize their development, such as physical growth and puberty.

The postdoc will have the opportunity to setup and conduct empirical research, and to analyze and write up findings of previously collected MIREC data. The candidate will be jointly supervised by Drs. Booij and Bouchard (Université de Montréal), and will work in a highly multidisciplinary environment (Psychology, Neurosciences, Environmental Health) and in collaboration with Health Canada and with multiple academic and hospital institutions in Canada.

Candidates must have a PhD (or close to completion) in a pertinent field (e.g., Epidemiology, Psychology, Environmental Health, Public Health), and excellent statistical skills. Being able to multitask and integrate into our multidisciplinary team are essential skills for the position. Proficiency in English, both written and spoken, is required. Knowledge of French is an asset.

 

The postdoctoral fellow will be based at CHU Sainte-Justine and will comply with all applicable eligibility conditions.

The postdoctoral fellow will receive a stipend from their Principal investigators research funds. This appointment will be renewable on a yearly basis, contingent on satisfactory performance and funding. The candidate should also apply for external scholarship awards. The position has a flexible start date.
