PhD Position in Child Development & Assistant Reproductive Techniques (UvA)

We are seeking a Ph.D. candidate for the project “The Rise of New Families: how can we help them flourish?”, funded by an NWA-ORC grant. The overarching aim of the research is to develop scientifically based and ethically sound counseling guidelines and training for all persons involved in (prospective) two-father and mother-father families who use a gestational carrier procedure (GCP).

The aim of the current Ph.D. position is to gain insight into child development, family functioning, and counseling and support needs of (prospective) parents and children from two-father and mother-father families born through GCPs, and the societal attitudes towards GCP families.
