Opportunity for Post-doctoral Fellowship 

The Project on Harm Reduction as Public Policy invites applications for a full-time post-doctoral fellow (supported through Tri-Council funds) at McGill University. The Project on Harm Reduction as Public Policy brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines including law, philosophy and political science to investigate the ways in which harm reduction practice and discourse are increasingly being taken up across a wide range of policy domains including, but not limited to, sexual and reproductive health, sex work, drug use, and physician-assisted dying.


The post-doctoral fellow will engage in a course of independent research related to the project. This could either be qualitative or critical case study analysis, or a study contributing to the understanding of the emergence of harm reduction as a policy framework more broadly. The successful applicant will also supervise graduate and undergraduate research assistants associated with the project.
