Successful applicants should possess clinical research expertise, demonstrated by a track record of current funded projects and peer-reviewed articles related to studies of substance use disorders.

This position will be supported jointly with the Penn State Consortium on Substance Use and Addiction (CSUA) and will participate in the Penn State Addiction Center for Translation.

The Division has established fruitful research and educational collaborations with several addiction treatment and prevention programs in Central Pennsylvania. With Penn State’s commitment to and investment in research on addictive disorders, this position is an outstanding opportunity for an early-career or seasoned leader in the field.
