All children deserve a promising start. Most children are doing fine. But some need extra support, because of problems during pregnancy, or because they grow up in disadvantaged circumstances, e.g. due to poverty or parental addiction or mental health problems. In this multidisciplinary project, we study how relevant datasets, among others of Statistics Netherlands, can be used to support these children and (expectant) parents. By ensuring more timely referral to services that meet their needs. And by tailoring municipal polities to the needs of vulnerable children and (expectant) parents. We collaborate with parents, practitioners and municipalities to ensure our research meets their priorities. This collaborative project includes partners from the Department of Public Health (Erasmus MC), the Departments of Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology (Erasmus MC), the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science, the City of Rotterdam, and a broad range of societal partners.
This vacancy is for a post-doctoral position at the Department of Public Health within the above project. Tasks include, among others, the development of a complex systems map of vulnerability in the first 1000 days of life based on a review of the scientific literature, and the quantification of risk factors associated with developmental outcomes and their long-run impacts. The post-doc will collaborate intensively with the post-docs for this project that are based at the Departments of Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology (Erasmus MC) and the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science.
