The research fellow would join a team of Investigators, Addiction Medicine fellows, Child Psychiatry residents, and research staff on addiction research projects funded by NIAAA and private foundations. The research fellow would be involved in several research projects stemming from this group, which include:

    1) What helps alcoholics/addicts stay sober?: Psychotropic medications, faith-based practices, 12-step participation and the course of addiction.
    2) What barriers do alcoholics/addicts face in sustaining sobriety?: Psychiatric co-morbidity, genetic, and environmental risk factors in addiction recovery.
    3) If AA-related helping promotes sustained sobriety, how do providers assess and promote the salient helping behaviors in alcoholics/addicts?: Development of a brief tool for assessing AA-related helping.
    4) Populations studied include: adults and adolescents with alcoholism and/or drug addiction, alcoholics/addicts court-ordered for treatment, addiction professionals.

    We are seeking a research fellow to join our active research team. A major aspect of the position will be to prepare and serve as first author on manuscripts and conference presentations. Travel to approved conferences for the purpose of presenting this data is typically paid for by the project. In addition, the research fellowship will provide training in grant preparation, management of Institutional Review Board applications and guidelines, supervisory skills, addiction medicine treatment approaches, longitudinal research design, treatment outcome research, and the conduct of research and treatment in primary care settings. The fellow will directly supervise a team of clinical interviewers and research assistants, providing guidance in substance use disorders and comorbid psychiatric disorders in youths and adults.

This is a two-year post-doctoral research fellowship, and the ideal candidate is interested in an academic career in child psychiatry and/or addiction medicine. However, clinical opportunities will be provided such that the fellow will be able to accrue sufficient direct clinical hours needed for licensure. A doctoral degree or ABD from an APA-accredited program or the equivalent is ideal. Required qualifications include excellent writing skills, research experience in child psychiatry, adult psychiatry, and/or addiction medicine, and treatment outcome and/or longitudinal research experience. Experience with project coordination and staff supervision is preferred.
