The University of North Texas Health Science Center (HSC), located in Fort Worth, TX, is looking for a post-doctoral associate to work on an R01 study (R01 AA 019511, Project INTEGRATE). Project INTEGRATE is a large-scale data integration and synthesis project aimed at providing the evidence of comparative effectiveness among competing brief alcohol interventions for adolescents and young adults. We employ advanced computational approaches to integrate, harmonize, standardize, and combine individual participant data from heterogeneous trials. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in developing and evaluating alcohol interventions, SPSS/SAS/R/Mplus programming, latent variable modeling, multilevel modeling, integrative data analysis, or meta-analysis.
The post-doctoral associate will primarily work with Dr. E.-Y. Mun but will have the opportunity to work with a large interdisciplinary team of experts. Individuals with training in clinical or health psychology, prevention research, quantitative psychology, biostatistics, or related areas are encouraged to apply. The start date is flexible but should be no later than February of 2021, with the possibility of remote work through 2021. The postdoc associate will have access to funds to support external trainings and conferences. The fellow may also take additional coursework/seminars at HSC in grant writing, intervention theory/design, community-based participatory research, addictive behaviors, and advanced statistical techniques.
Applicants should have (or anticipate having) a Ph.D. before starting. The salary is based on the NIH guidelines and the candidate’s level of experience. To apply, please send a cover letter, statement of research interests, two-three paper reprints that best represent the candidate’s work, and a curriculum vitae to Dr. E.-Y. Mun at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, three letters of recommendation may be requested.
