The purpose of the Fonds d'Expérimentation pour la Jeunesse (FEJ) is to finance experimental programs aimed at promoting the academic success of students, contributing to equal opportunities and improving the sustainable social and professional integration of young people under the age of twenty-five. In June 2019, the FEJ launched a call for projects aimed at associations, youth support structures, local authorities, schools, public or private institutions and health care stakeholders in all the overseas territories (except Reunion Island) wishing to develop innovative actions to prevent risky behaviors and improve access to healthcare for young people in the overseas territories. Within the framework of this call for projects, the town hall of Dumbéa and the New Caledonian Red Cross have obtained funding for their programs and the UMR Passages Site de Pau will be responsible for evaluating these programs. The main objective of the French Red Cross is to develop the training of field actors on the identification, support and orientation of young people with addictive practices and to build with the young people themselves new tools adapted to different types of public. The Dumbéa town hall, for its part, aims, based on the protocol of the psychologist Harvey Milkmann, initiator of the "Icelandic" model for the prevention of addictive behavior, to set up a network of actors who are aware of the identification of addiction and health problems.
The research/evaluation work proposed by the research team of the UMR Passages du site palois consists of producing a social diagnosis of the territory, support and in itinere evaluation of the implementation of the actions developed within the framework of the program, and more specifically their governance, application and impact on the prevention of risk behaviors. In order to carry out this research-evaluation, the Department of Sociology of the University of Pau is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher for a one-year contract, renewable for a total period of 31 months.


In close collaboration with the prevention actors of the Noumea town hall and the Red Cross established in New Caledonia, the postdoctoral student will be in charge of applying an evaluation protocol built in consultation with the researchers of the Pau site in order to accompany the actors of the Noumea town hall and the Red Cross in the implementation of their activities and to make adjustments thanks to the results of this research-evaluation.
The post-doctoral researcher recruited will have to carry out the research through the following tasks:
- Conducting a review of the scientific literature (in French and English) on the subject of addictive behaviors of young people.
- The realization of a state of research on New Caledonian youth and addictive behaviors in the Territory
- Completion of a questionnaire distributed to parents of teens, prevention professionals and teens who have dropped out of school and analysis of the data.
- Conducting semi-directive interviews with these same professionals.
- The follow-up of some actions with the systematic production of a report.
- Participation in technical and steering committees in order to present the results of the evaluation and provide expertise to the actors in the field and the production of systematic reports.
- Participating in the writing of annual progress notes and the final report.
The data produced in the research phase will enable a portrait to be drawn up of the situation of addictive behavior among young people in New Caledonia outside the school-going population, to define its specific features in relation to the situation of young people internationally, and to better define how the various players (professionals, parents of adolescents, teachers, etc.) see themselves in terms of preventing risk behavior and applying the "Icelandic model". They will be used, from the first year, to accompany the reflection of professionals on the implementation of their actions.


Expected level and skills
- Holder of a doctorate in sociology, anthropology, political science or education sciences
- Experience in research-evaluation and/or knowledge of the field of addiction prevention
- Solid experience in conducting semi-structured interviews.
- Ability to develop a quantitative questionnaire and conduct data analysis
- Excellent writing and synthesis skills
- Mastery of spoken and written French
Desired skills
- Work experience in a multicultural environment
- Knowledge of New Caledonia
- Fluency in English
- Writing of scientific article(s)

Work Context

The position is assigned to the UMR Passages (composed of 3 geographical sites (Bordeaux Campus, Bayonne and at PAU) and the candidate will be recruited on the site of Pau Institut Claude Laugénie, avenue de l'Université 64002 Pau. He or she will be imperatively based via a Mission Order in Noumea, New Caledonia for the duration of the postdoctorate.
The research conducted in the UMR Passages is built around the central place given to space, places and territories and is intrinsically multidisciplinary. The UMR is structured around four main themes: Territory, Environment, Reality Normalization Mechanisms and the Body and Subjects. In addition, the UMR is at the articulation between three transversal fields which constitute the focal points of the laboratory: mediation, transition and translation. In addition to these differences, three elements characterize the approaches we follow: the importance of the empirical anchoring of research, and the place occupied by practice and ethnography in the field in the production of knowledge; the interaction sought with political, social and economic actors, nourished by a practice of research involved in the movement of the project; the development of a reflexive process that questions the entire chain of knowledge production.
The postdoctoral student will work in direct contact with the ITAs and the teaching researchers of the UMR site in Pau, as he or she will be invited to seminars and events organized internally, he or she will participate in times of exchange and reflection on the project and the team members will accompany him or her in the evaluation process, the construction of tools and the analysis of data.
From 01/01/2021 the UMR Passages will no longer include the Pau site, but the CDD will be assigned at that time in the new UMR TREE of UPPA campus

Constraints and risks

The research-evaluation envisaged involves missions abroad, mainly a mission in New Caledonia for the majority of the time on fixed-term contracts. Their feasibility will be assessed according to the evolution of the sanitary framework and the rules governing missions at the CNRS.
