Postdoctoral Research Scientist - Daniel P. Giovenco, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health
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.
