Applicants are sought for an   NIAAA -funded research project involving secondary data analysis and new data collection investigating mechanisms of problem-drinking reduction (including recovery from Alcohol Use Disorder) across different periods of the adult lifespan (young adulthood, midlife, and older adulthood). This will be a two-to-three-year position in which the successful candidate will (1) help coauthor research papers currently at various stages of preparation on mechanisms of problem-drinking reduction in young adulthood and midlife and (2) assist with planning and oversight of survey-based data collection emphasizing possible links between health issues (including cognitive decline) and problem drinking in a sample of midlife and older adults. All of this research centers around characterizing mechanisms of problem-drinking reductions toward evaluating multiple theoretical models of how reductions occur, understanding developmental variability across the adult lifespan in key mechanisms, and thereby guiding lifespan-developmentally-informed interventions. This position offers many significant training opportunities. Beyond experience gained assisting in the above   NIAAA -funded research, the successful candidate will also participate in training activities alongside postdoctoral trainees supported by the Center of Alcohol Studies postdoctoral fellowship program in translational addictions research. The fellowship is led by an interdisciplinary team of addiction scientists affiliated with the Center. Training is designed to build knowledge in a number of core domains of addictions research including (1) implementation science, experimental medicine, and clinical trials, (2) psychopathology in the context of lifespan development, (3) cognitive and affective neuroscience models in animals and humans (4) biostatistics, (5) research design, management, and ethics, (6) scientific writing and oral presentation, and (7) grant preparation. Altogether, the experience and training offered by this position will impart skills necessary for submitting competitive career development (e.g.,   LRP   and K) awards. For interested applicants, there is also potential for this position to facilitate broader career-development training opportunities through the   INSPIRE ( IRACDA   New Jersey/New York for Science Partnerships in Research & Education) Postdoctoral Program at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School ( RWJMS ). The Center of Alcohol Studies ( CAS ), located on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University, is a multidisciplinary research and training institute.   CAS is home to a group of internationally recognized scholars with strong records in addiction-focused clinical and biomedical research on alcohol and substance use disorders from across many Rutgers University schools and programs, as   well as an illustrious group of affiliated scientists outside of the university. The Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology ( GSAPP ) is home to   CAS , with strong ties to the School of Public Health, University Behavioral Health Services, and the Brain Health Institute. GSAPP’s commitment to diversity, social justice and helping the underserved contributes to a supportive and mission-focused atmosphere. We place a high degree of emphasis on fostering and encouraging a diverse community of faculty and students and on supporting research/practice that benefits diverse and under-served communities; applicants who can contribute in this valued direction are particularly encouraged to apply.
