We are seeking postdoctoral fellows or graduate students to join the Neuroethics Research Unit of the Montreal Clinical Research Institute (IRCM; to contribute to research examining the ethical and social implications of health care transitions for youth with chronic conditions, including rare diseases. The selected candidates will be involved in interventional ethics projects focused on pediatric to adult transitional care for youth with chronic health conditions and youth with primary immunodeficiencies/rare diseases who receive services at the Centre hospitalier universitaire Sainte-Justine and the IRCM. These projects aim to characterize transition practices from an ethics standpoint and to pilot innovative ethics-informed interventions to support youth and their caregivers. These positions are funded by a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the IRCM Foundation. These are 12-month positions with the possibility of a renewal. Candidates with expertise outside of bioethics (e.g., implementation science or action-research) are invited to submit their application. PDF icon bourse_postdoctorale_ou_bourse_detudes_superieures_en_1.pdfPDF icon bourse_postdoctorale_ou_bourse_detudes_superieures_fr_1.pdf
