Post-Doctoral Fellow - Global Mental Health
Srividya Iyer’s research group at the Douglas Research Centre and McGill University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position from candidates interested in working in global mental health. The post-doc will mainly be involved in an exciting new project funded by the International Development Research Centre, that involves leadership from and partnership with colleagues at the University of Ibadan and other stakeholders in Nigeria. The project aims to conduct a gendered situational analysis of how the COVID-19 pandemic and significant life events (childbirth, family/health emergencies, etc.) affect the paid and unpaid work, and mental, physical and social wellbeing of self-employed young women in Nigeria; their strategies for coping with such events; and how these compare with those of self-employed young men. A second aim is to co-produce and pilot a scalable intervention to support self-employed young women in Nigeria to cope better with disruptions to their well-being and work. The post-doc will have the opportunity to contribute to other projects focused on youth mental health, early intervention and global mental health.

The research program has various objectives and aligned activities such as identifying and sharing wise practices; identifying, developing and testing culturally and contextually relevant interventions, and measures; understanding views of Indigenous youths, service providers, and decision-makers on topics related to youth mental health and mental health services and developing culturally and contextually relevant outcomes.
