Closing Date: August 1, 2018

The position is salaried with full beneifits. 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 geographic variation in the diverse tobacco retail environment in the U.S. and its impact on tobacco use disparities. Candidates should hold a doctoral-level degree in public health, social and behavioral health sciences, epidemiology, or a related field. Ideal candidates will have strong a background and interest in tobacco control research and health disparities. Strong statistical skills, documented experience analyzing large, nationally representative health surveys, and a record of peer-reviewed publications are highly preferred qualifications. Although the candidate will dedicate most of her/his effort to the project’s research activities, she/he will be encouraged to pursue independent research interests within the field of tobacco control. The duration of this position is 12 months, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.
