The CIHR Engage Cohort Study is recruiting for a 2-year Postdoctoral Fellow to begin as soon as possible. The primary focus of this position will be to support Engage qualitative research activities related to understanding the direct and indirect impacts of COVID-19 on the health of sexual and gender minority men in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.

Qualitative interviews will be conducted virtually or in-person (when resuming in-person data collection is possible). For more information about the Engage study, please see: https://www.engage-men.ca/. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be based at the University of Toronto, Dalla Lana School of Public Health, under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Grace at the Centre for Sexual and Gender Minority Health Research: https://www.dlsph.utoronto.ca/centre-for-sexual-and-gender-minority-health-research/.

The successful candidate will help lead research to explore where and how sexual and gender minority men retrieve information about COVID-19, how they come to trust and incorporate these messages into everyday practice, and what knowledge and communication gaps exist. In addition to learning how to minimize the direct impact of the pandemic on this population, our research will investigate the indirect impacts of COVID-19 on sexual behaviours mental health outcomes, substance use behaviours, and potential disrupted access to HIV/STI testing, treatment, and prevention (e.g., HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)).
