Postdoctoral Researchers

The Department of Health and Society is an ideal place to launch an academic career with a postdoctoral fellowship. We are a vibrant, interdisciplinary community of academics united by an interest in health, disability, illness, and disease in areas related to the lifecourse and the life cycle, social hierarchies and marginality, migration and health, cultures of health and illness, and the environment and health. We are pleased to welcome postdoctoral fellows who have shown excellence in their doctoral research and demonstrate promise as scholars in an area in which our faculty have expertise.
