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 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 experience conducting research in the area of tobacco control and/or other substance use policy, and demonstrate a strong commitment to addressing health disparities. Strong quantitative skills (e.g., population survey analysis) and a record of peer-reviewed publications are preferred qualifications. Although the candidate will dedicate most of their effort to the grant’s research activities, they will be encouraged to pursue independent research interests within the field of substance use. The duration of this position is 12 months, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Analyze and interpret population survey data, tobacco sales data, and data on tobacco marketing at the point-of-sale
  • Contribute to the development of peer-reviewed manuscripts and scientific presentations
