Description

Post-doctoral Associate Opening at Yale School of Medicine, Division of Substance Abuse

The Yale School of Medicine Division of Substance Abuse of the Department of Psychiatry is recruiting one postdoctoral associate (2-year appointment) to begin July 1, 2019, who aspires to become an independent academic researcher in the areas of alcohol and tobacco use, clinical trials of behavioral/pharmacological interventions, mobile health (mHealth), and studies of intervention mechanisms and risk factors of substance use.

The postdoctoral associate will work primarily with Dr. Lisa Fucito, Associate Professor, clinical psychologist, and Director of the Tobacco Treatment Service at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, on an NIH-funded study of a multi-modal, mobile sleep intervention for young adults who report heavy alcohol use. The study incorporates sleep and alcohol biosensor technology and a mobile self-monitoring application. The goal is to evaluate effective sleep intervention components for engaging young adults in treatment, improving their sleep, and reducing their alcohol use and alcohol-related consequences. The postdoctoral associate will also have the opportunity to work with Dr. Fucito on completed and ongoing tobacco clinical trials and implementation and dissemination studies.

Other research duties will include authoring and co-authoring several manuscripts per year, assisting with grant writing, collaborating with other investigators, and attending professional conferences. The position may also include some supervision of students in the lab. The position will also assist the postdoctoral associate in developing a career as an independent researcher.

Qualifications include a doctoral degree in the behavioral sciences, public health, psychology, or other relevant area at the time the fellowship begins and excellent project management and writing skills. Applicants must also be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. Experience with alcohol and/or tobacco research, clinical trials, student supervision, mobile health, computer programming, and quantitative methods are preferred but not required. Yale University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and actively solicits applications from women and minority candidates.
