The primary responsibility of the post-doctoral fellow will be to assist in building active programs of research.
The fellowship provides exceptional mentored training with an opportunity to develop research skills and collaborate with a dynamic, federally funded, multi-disciplinary team of investigators including behavioral scientists, physicians, epidemiologists, and environmental scientists. The position will offer a 12 month appointment with a flexible start date, competitive salary, and excellent resources for career development. The fellowship can be tailored to suit the individual’s interests with opportunities for teaching experience, authorship on relevant manuscripts, collaborative grant writing experience as well as independent grant development.

The postdoctoral fellow will also be exposed to CTS affiliate faculty members (e.g., Drs Graber, Meng, Steinberg, etc).
The Center for Tobacco Studies seeks to advance the scientific base for tobacco control by conducting applied research of high quality, integrity, and innovation. The Center faculty currently direct a broad range of research projects that involve studying tobacco use survey measurement; characteristics and trends in the use of non-cigarette tobacco products such as smokeless tobacco, cigars, and e-cigarettes; tobacco use and cessation in special populations such as young adults and minorities; risk perceptions; tobacco industry marketing including direct mail, coupons, and websites; and physicians’ perceptions, attitudes, and communication of e-cigarettes. The Center Director, Dr. Cristine Delnevo, has extensive experience conducting tobacco control research and mentoring on a wide variety of tobacco-related topics.
Although based within the School of Public Health (sph.rutgers.edu), the Center’s faculty are active members of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey (cinj.org), the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research (ihhcpar.rutgers.edu), the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (eohsi.rutgers.edu), and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (rwjms.rutgers.edu). The fellowship program provides an exceptionally rich environment for interdisciplinary tobacco control research.
