Children’s Health Policy Centre

We are an interdisciplinary research group in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. We focus on improving wellbeing for all children, and on the public policies needed to reach this goal. Our work complements the mission of the Faculty of Health Sciences to advance the health of populations locally, nationally and globally.

We acknowledge our privilege in being located on the ancestral lands of the xwməθkwəy̓ əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl ̓ ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), q̓ ic̓əy̓ (Katzie) and kwikwəƛ ̓ əm (Kwikwetlem) Nations. We understand and commit to the ongoing work of reconciliation that is required to honour all Indigenous Peoples.

Assistant Professor being sought for the Children’s Health Policy Centre

We seek a scholar holding a PhD, and ideally having post-doctoral training or the equivalent, in a child health field relevant to public and population health policy — addressing early social determinants of health, early child development and wellbeing and/or children’s rights.
