The Population Well-being Lab at the University of Toronto is hiring a Postdoctoral Fellow to join us to study population-level determinants and consequences of happiness! We are especially interested in increasing our research capacity to investigate the well-being impact of war and conflict given recent events. The postdoctoral fellow will gain access to large existing datasets, such as the Gallup World Poll (over 2 million participants surveyed across over 160 countries).
Our Lab has a ‘glocal’ focus. At the local level, our Lab recently released a Canadian Happiness Report, documenting a worrying decline in happiness in Canada since the late 2000s. At the global level, we are currently working on multiple projects related to the well-being impact of war and conflict in collaboration with Syrian and Ukrainian researchers. The long-term goal of these efforts is to develop evidence-based interventions and policies to improve well-being at scale. To study a wide range of social issues, our Lab highly values the diversity of our team members.
