Postdoctoral Fellowship in Perinatal and Postpartum Health & Gender Based Violence

Violence against women and girls is pervasive and linked to poor health outcomes across the lifespan. Experiencing gender-based violence is associated with compromised mental health, problematic substance use and poor sexual, reproductive and maternal outcomes, including higher rates of sexually transmitted infections, unintended pregnancy, insufficient prenatal care, and preterm birth. In addition to a significantly greater likelihood of complicated deliveries, pregnant women who had experiences of sexual and/or physical abuse throughout childhood were more likely to be fearful of childbirth compared to non-abused women.

Applicants will have a PhD in a health-related discipline, such as: clinical psychology, counselling psychology, health psychology, health services research, interdisciplinary studies, nursing, reproductive and developmental sciences or another discipline related to the evaluation of perinatal mental health, with some previous experience and interests in the area of perinatal mental health or gender-based violence.
