The fellow will conduct research on factors associated with suicide attempt in the 1993 Pelotas Birth Cohort.

This project is funded by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Requirements include experience in the area of child and youth mental health, with an emphasis on psychiatric epidemiology. Candidates with a PhD (or defence scheduled in the coming months) related to public health, epidemiology, quantitative psychology or similar are invited to apply.
The postdoctoral fellow will work under the supervision of Dr. Ian Colman at the APEAL Lab, in an enriching, supportive, and inclusive environment. Applicants wishing to work from a remote location will be considered. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to publish multiple first-author papers, and to become involved in grant preparation, data analysis, and knowledge translation activities. The fellow may have the opportunity to visit Pelotas for a research stay.
