This project focusses on public health and policy aspects of HIV prevention in the EuRegio Limburg. The EuRegio project takes a cross-border, regional, and tailored approach to reducing HIV risk among key populations such as migrants, asylum seekers and men who have sex with men (MSM). The project is currently staffed with a PhD student who will complete a needs assessment and systematically develop an intervention. The post-doc will complement this work, mostly focusing on health policy and building a regional network of health care providers and other stakeholders, with additional room to build an own line of research.

The candidate will work in the Maastricht University’s Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience, Department of Work and Social Psychology, section Applied Social Psychology.
