A two-year postdoctoral fellowship position is available for individuals interested in a career conducting research on recovery support services for adults with substance use disorders. The fellow will work directly with Drs. Ashli Sheidow and Michael McCart, two accomplished clinical investigators, in achieving the aims of NIH-, foundation-, and state-funded research projects.
This postdoctoral fellow will primarily work on a NIDA-funded Initiative (R24DA051950) focused on two populations:
(1) emerging adults and
(2) adults of any age involved with the justice system.
This Initiative seeks to advance research on the efficacy/effectiveness of recovery support services, specifically peer supports and recovery residences, by
(1) identifying priority research areas,
(2) increasing the number of early career investigators in this field,
(3) providing funds and guidance for pilot studies, and
(4) conducting dissemination and outreach to the larger field. Including individuals with lived experiences (i.e., in recovery from substance use and/or formerly involved with the adult or juvenile justice system) in all Initiative activities is a high priority. Beyond the Initiative activities, integration into other projects will be based on the fellow’s interests and training needs.
