Postdoctoral Training Program in Substance Abuse Prevention Research Print E-mail

Two-year NIDA T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship: The Division of Prevention and Community Research, Department of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine.

Recruitment has now concluded for 2014. Please check back again in early 2015. 

The program emphasizes five areas of research training: 1) conceptualization, design, and implementation of prevention research using a social ecological framework; 2) knowledge development and application in pre-intervention, intervention, and dissemination research; 3) use of state-of-the-art data analytic and research methods; 4) interdisciplinary research through collaborations across programs, departments, centers, and institutions; and 5) translational research from controlled settings to real-world contexts with the purpose of impacting prevention practice and policy. Training occurs through seminars, focused research activities, and close mentorship with faculty scientific advisors in order to prepare fellows as future prevention researchers.

Postdoctoral fellows participate in core seminars on Research and Data Analytic Methods, Grant Development, and Professional Development as well as in seminars and colloquia that cover related topics, such as the ethical conduct of research and current topics in substance abuse prevention. Fellows also receive mentor-based training on two scientific projects while working concurrently with two core faculty who serve as their scientific advisors. Faculty available to serve as mentors are located in several research divisions in the Department of Psychiatry, such as the Division of Prevention and Community Research, the Division on Addictions, the Yale Stress Center, and Women's Health Research at Yale, as well as in other Yale settings, such as the Department of Psychology and the School of Public Health.

Competitive candidates should have: 1) a Ph.D. in community, clinical, developmental, counseling, or health psychology, or a doctoral degree in public health or family studies; 2) a strong research background; and 3) interest in pursuing an academic career. At the time of recruitment, applicants will be required to send a CV, representative reprints, a statement of interests and future goals, identification of up to three faculty members with whom they wish to work listed in order of priority (list available from: http://medicine.yale.edu/psychiatry/psychology/postdoc/dpcr.aspx ), and three letters of recommendation to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
