Job Requisition Number 00002375
Field(s) of Specialization Tobacco control research
Position Title Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Department SMS Sociomedical Science
Division Sociomedical Science
Location Medical Center
Summary Description

The Department of Sociomedical Sciences at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health invites applications from PhD or other doctoral-level degree holders for a postdoctoral position in tobacco control research.

Under the direction of the Principal Investigator (Dr. Daniel Giovenco), the successful candidate will play an integral role on a NIH-funded project exploring the diverse tobacco retail environment in the U.S. and its impact on tobacco use disparities. The primary responsibilities would be to analyze and interpret population survey data, tobacco sales data, and data on tobacco marketing at the point-of-sale; to contribute to the development of peer-reviewed manuscripts and scientific presentations; to assist with the preparation of new funding applications; and, to pursue independent research in tobacco control, the epidemiology of tobacco/other substance use, health disparities, and/or related fields.

Although the candidate will dedicate most of their effort to the grant’s research activities, they will be encouraged to pursue independent research interests within the field of substance use. The duration of this position is 12 months, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.

Minimum Degree Required

PhD or other doctoral-level degree in public health, social and behavioral sciences, epidemiology, or a related field is required.

Minimum Qualifications

• Experience analyzing population survey data using SAS or similar software programs
• Research experience in tobacco control and/or other substance use policy
• Demonstrated interest in addressing health disparities
• Excellent communication and writing skills, including record of peer-reviewed manuscript writing and scientific presentations

Preferred Qualifications

Strong quantitative skills (e.g., population survey analysis) and a record of peer-reviewed publications are preferred qualifications.
