Mustard Postdoctoral Research Award in Work and Health

Institute for Work & Health
The award is named in honour of Dr. J. Fraser Mustard, who was the chair of the Institute for Work & Health’s first Board of Directors.
The award supports the development of outstanding new researchers in the field of work and health congruent with the mission of the Institute. It aims specifically to build capacity for innovative multidisciplinary research concerning the relationship between work environments and worker health. As such, the award is open to a range of academic disciplines including social, behavioural and organizational sciences, as well as clinical and population health sciences.
Research conducted at the Institute broadly encompasses two overarching priorities: Work as a Determinant of Health and Health as a Determinant of Work. Within each priority the Institute focuses its research on sub-themes related to workers, workplaces, and system-level policies that are relevant to Canadians and others both today and in the future.
Submissions are encouraged from applicants with an interest in either of IWH’s overarching priorities. Preference will be given to candidates whose research interests closely align with IWH’s current research and topic areas.
