COMPASS is a nine-year longitudinal study on a variety of youth health outcomes and their relationship to the school environment (policies, practices, programs, etc.). Each year we collect data from ~80,000 adolescents and their secondary schools in four Canadian provinces and one territory. Lots of cool data to work with for those with an interest in quantitative research and youth health! This particular postdoc would be funded to work on a project investigating youths’ milk consumption, and its relation to various health and social indicators (e.g., obesity). The duration of the postdoc is 1-2 years.
