Two post-doctoral fellowships are offered under the aegis of a Thematic Project hosted by the University of São Paulo’s Psychology Institute (IP-USP, Brazil), which aims to implement and evaluate an STI / AIDS prevention program based on a multicultural human rights perspective in high schools and health centers of the school territory in different cities of the State of São Paulo – Sorocaba, Santos, and São Paulo City.

The opportunity is for a subproject entitled “Epidemiology of a youth STI / AIDS prevention program” based in the university’s School of Public Health (FSP-USP). Selected fellows will participate in research activities at all sites supporting the implementation of the intervention with local research teams in the evaluation of psychosocial interventions. As a result of this fellowship, fellows will be able to analyze quantitative data on psychosocial socialization processes for gender and sexuality, on processes of changing knowledge and preventive practices for pregnancy and STI / AIDS, on partner violence, and on stigmatization and discrimination in the school environment.

Because it is an intervention study, fluency in Portuguese and previous knowledge proven in epidemiological or social studies with quantitative analysis (Stata or R) are required. Fellows must be available to travel between the three cities, write scientific reports, articles and others. Knowledge about theories and methods of HIV / AIDS prevention and human rights-based health approaches will be highly valued.

The selection for the 2nd phase of interviews will be based on the analysis of a dossier sent to the contact email including 1) a letter of intent justifying the candidate potential contribution to the project; 2) Complete Curriculum Vitae; 3) a recommendation letter by a researcher in the field.

This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. Each selected candidate will receive a FAPESP’s Post-Doctoral fellowship in the amount of R$ 7,373.10 monthly and a research contingency fund, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity. Further information can be found at: http://www.fapesp.br/en/postdoc.
