Individual and Environmental Factors in Drug Taking and Relapse

 The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), an institute within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow to study individual and environmental factors in drug taking and relapse. The primary focus is on collecting real-time self-reports of exposure to drug cues and psychosocial stressors via Ecological Momentary Assessment; these data are to be integrated with continuously collected GPS data on study participants' locations, which will need to be expressed in terms of objective indicators of neighborhood disarray. The prospective candidate should have knowledge and experience in substance-abuse research. Experience with GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is highly desirable, but not required. The workplace is in the Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics Research Branch of NIDA's Intramural Research Program (IRP) in Baltimore, MD. The successful candidate must have an M.D. or Ph.D. in Psychology, Epidemiology, or a closely related field, with 5 or fewer years of postdoctoral experience. Stipend will be commensurate with experience and previous accomplishments. The fellowship is open to U.S. and foreign citizens.

To apply,  send a CV, statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation to:

Kenzie L. Preston, Ph.D.
251 Bayview Blvd., Suite 200
Baltimore, MD 21224, USA

Applications are open until position is filled.
