Postdoctoral Fellowships – Brown University

Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Brown University Center for Alcohol & Addiction Studies:  The Brown University Center for Alcohol & Addiction Studies (CAAS) is recruiting postdoctoral fellows for two T32 training programs funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). We anticipate appointing 3-6 scholars for 2-3 years, starting in June to September 2024. The fellowship emphasizes that intervention should be guided by sophisticated and fully developed theory that considers biological, social, and cultural influences and contexts. We also stress the importance of integrating theory, research, and the latest technologies to advance prevention and intervention strategies across development. Distinctive features of our program include its interdisciplinary nature, focus on training in early intervention and treatment along a continuum with attention to crucial health disparities, and emphasis on highly individualized training opportunities to develop competitive grant applications.
