The Whole Family Lab currently has the following opportunities available: 

Postdoctoral Fellow for Evaluation Project

The Whole Family Laboratory at the University of Waterloo (PI: Dr. Dillon Browne, Canada Research Chair in Child & Family Clinical Psychology) is currently recruiting a postdoctoral scholar. The position will be funded by a MITACS fellowship ($55,000) with the opportunity for additional top-up funding from the Faculty of Arts, University of Waterloo. The project is set to last one year, with the possibility of extension, pending funding.

The position will involve partnering with a community service provider for women who have been victims of domestic and other forms of violence. The community service provider offers clinical intervention services, including EMDR and cognitive processing therapy. The postdoctoral fellow would be involved with designing an evaluation that maps onto existing services. The position will be mostly remote (as part of the lab), but would also include developing trusting relationships at the organization, so some in-person (and Greater Toronto Area access) is essential. Methodologically, the evaluation will be quantitative, requiring the successful applicant to have skills in statistics and data analysis, in addition to research methods in the context of community evaluation (e.g., psychology, epidemiology, biostatistics, sociology, public health, etc.). For fellows who are Regulated Health Professions (e.g., Clinical Psychology, Social Work), opportunity for clinical service will also be provided, but is not essential. There will also be ample opportunity to collaborate on the Whole Family Lab’s associated projects, with opportunities for publishing and disseminating high quality clinical science from existing databases.

As a feminist and intersectional organization serving many women of colour, the community partners have expressed interest in having an individual from the BIPOC community (and/or female), though all qualified applicants will be considered.

If interested, please contact with your CV and brief statement of intent.
