The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College is accepting applications for two Postdoctoral Research Fellows to join a dynamic interdisciplinary research group, the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH), a NIH-NIDA funded Center of Excellence focused on promoting state-of-the-science and state-of-the-technologies related to digital health approaches for substance use, behavioral health, and related conditions. Scholars will have access to the broad interdisciplinary faculty, training opportunities, and resources of CTBH, including workshops, seminars, grant writing consultation, and pilot funding opportunities for digital health research (www.c4tbh.org). We are committed to promoting equity and inclusion in our research and central to this mission is a commitment to fostering research training for historically underserved trainees.
The Research Fellows will join a team of clinicians and researchers focused on a program of research being led by CTBH faculty. Position One will specifically involve joining a team focused on identifying optimal models of substance use treatment and health care for pregnant and parenting women with opioid use disorder and their children. This Research Fellow will have the opportunity to participate in NIH- and PCORI-funded intervention and observational comparative e!ectiveness studies, including studies using digital technologies to deliver evidence-based interventions grounded in mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, and motivational therapies. These studies offer rich opportunities for community-based participatory research with underserved populations and service providers throughout rural northern New England. Sarah Lord, PhD leads this research team and is the contact person for this position.
The focus of Position Two is open, and would involve working with one or more teams led by CTBH faculty located at Dartmouth. Areas of focus include but are not limited to: substance use and serious mental illness (Mary Brunette, MD); cannabis intervention and policy research using social media research and population science methodologies (Alan Budney, PhD and Jake Borodovsky, PhD); digital assessment and therapeutics and data analytics for mental health and substance use (Nick Jacobson, PhD); digital assessment/therapeutics, opioid use disorder treatment innovations, behavior change mechanisms (Lisa Marsch, PhD); behavioral medicine, digital health behavior change interventions (Catherine Stanger, PhD). Please review our website to learn more about these and other CTBH faculty and their interests (www.c4tbh.org).
The Research Fellows will also become immersed in our innovative T32 training program focused on the Science of Co-Occurring Disorders (geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/scd/) and funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The program offers predoctoral and postdoctoral training in transdisciplinary and translational research on co-occurring substance use and other health conditions. Multidisciplinary faculty o!er training in developmental, social, behavioral, neurobiological, and transdiagnostice mechanisms of substance use, mental health, and co- occurring disorders. Faculty include preeminent national/international leaders and PhD and MD investigators with strong histories of training scientists and obtaining funding (NIDA, NIAAA, NIMH, NCI, NCATS, NICHD, PCORI). Mentors have excellent track records for helping Research Fellows obtain independent funding and academic or health science industry positions. All Research Fellows can participate in T32 training and activities regardless of how their Postdoctoral Fellowship is funded.
