The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Southern California is seeking a full-time postdoctoral research fellow to execute grant-funded research on substance use and other health-related behavioral and psychosocial domains with veterans and young adults. Ideally, the fellow will have proficient therapy skills and training in statistical analyses to aid in analyzing data from randomized controlled trials and from longitudinal survey studies. The Fellow will work across multiple active NIH grants and research studies with Eric Pedersen, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and Jordan Davis, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work. Broadly, research projects aim to decrease hazardous substance use behavior, alleviate mental health symptoms, and reduce risks for sexual violence among veterans and young adults through innovative brief online and mobile-based brief interventions. Current projects with veterans include a randomized controlled trial of a mindfulness-based mobile program, a longitudinal survey study examining substance use and mental health outcomes, and a longitudinal study implementing machine learning techniques to aid in predicting mental health and substance use symptoms among recently returning veterans. The position includes an approximate half-time position conducting in-person and online therapy sessions with veterans as part of a large multisite trial of meditation for those with posttraumatic stress disorder. There will be opportunities to gain further clinical experience with college students, through a partnership with the University of Southern California’s Counseling and Mental Health Services. In addition, there will be multiple opportunities to collaborate with researchers across the University of Southern California; primarily, with researchers in the Department of Preventive Medicine, the Center for Mindfulness Science, the Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society, and the Institute for Addiction Science. The position term is for one to three years.
The start date is flexible but should be no later than July 1, 2023.
To apply, please send a cover letter, statement of research interests, two paper reprints that best exemplify the candidate’s writing skills, and a curriculum vitae to Eric Pedersen at Eric.Pedersen@med.usc.edu. Additionally, please arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to Dr. Pedersen if requested.
