    SafetyNet: A Community Research Alliance on Health and Safety in Marine and Coastal Work

    SafetyNet ( is a multi-year research program of innovative, interdisciplinary research projects in workplace health and safety. Our research, supported by major funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) as part of its 'Community Alliances for Health Research' program, focuses on resource-based industries and small businesses in marine and coastal environments. Centred at Memorial University in St. John's, NL, SafetyNet involves researchers in a wide range of academic disciplines at universities in Atlantic Canada and elsewhere in Canada and the United States and working partnerships with numerous stakeholder and community organizations.

    We are seeking an interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellow with training related to workplace health and safety (WHS). The postdoctoral fellow will join the SafetyNet team of researchers and participate in existing and emerging research projects appropriate to her/his expertise and interests.

    Applicants will have a doctorate or equivalent degree in any of a wide range of disciplines related to WHS. We are particularly interested in applicants with a WHS background in one or more of the following areas: resource-based industries, small business, industrial hygiene and/or industrial engineering. Experience in both qualitative and quantitative research methods would be a major asset.

    The post-doctoral fellow will be located at Memorial University in St. John's. She or he will be mentored by the SafetyNet Co-Directors, Drs. Barbara Neis and Stephen Bornstein, and by the holder of a new Research Chair in Workplace Health and Safety who is currently being recruited.
