Lab Recruitment

[Current as of March 20 2023]

The population health data science lab (Principal Investigator: Antony Chum), at York University, is looking to recruit graduate students (MSc and Phd) and RAs to conduct research in the areas of substance use, suicidality, and mental health research in the general population and marginalized populations (e.g. LGBTQ2S+). Antony is the Canada Research Chair in Population Health Sciences, and has 4 active federal grants (SSHRC and CIHR) on projects such as ‘Evaluating the impact of recreational cannabis legalization on acute care outcomes’ and ‘Investigating the social determinants of LGBT+ mental health in Canada’.

We welcome candidates at all levels of study:

  • Candidates should have some training in quantitative methods (e.g. multiple regression, logistic regression, data cleaning, etc)
  • Ideal candidates at the PhD level should know about analyses involving clustered data (e.g. multilevel models) and longitudinal analysis (e.g. survival analysis, fixed-effect models)
  • Candidates who have experience using SAS, R, or STATA are preferred

Please send a copy of your CV, along with a write up about yourself (written in the email body is fine) and why you think you’d be a good fit with our lab to eddief(at) with the subject line “Lab Recruitment”.

At this time, we can’t accept international students, but we hope this changes in the near future. We thank all international applicants for taking the time to apply and apologize about the situation.
