The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health has established a Post-doctoral Fellowship in Community-based Research through CAMH's Social and Epidemiological Research (SER).
The purpose is to provide a post-doctoral fellow with training in the techniques and principles of community-based research in mental health and addictions. Fellows can propose research in any area related to mental health and addictions, and can be supervised by any CAMH scientist.
The competition will be chaired by Dr. Sergio Rueda, a Scientist in Social and Epidemiological Research at CAMH.
In addition to the usual academic requirements of CAMH fellows, successful candidates for this fellowship will be required to show that
1) their proposed research question is seen as a priority for the community under study
2) community members and/or organizations will be actively and meaningfully engaged in the research
3) the research is likely to have a tangible impact for the community.
