The Department of Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth (Geisel) seeks an outstanding individual to join our faculty within the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH). CTBH is an interdisciplinary research group whose mission is to inform the optimal development, scientific evaluation, and sustainable implementation of digital therapeutics for behavioral health. CTBH is a designated “Center of Excellence” by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The successful candidate will be leading a vigorous research program on the application of digital health to the treatment of substance use disorders and/or related fields. This individual should be particularly experienced in leading clinical effectiveness trials and/or implementation science studies. This individual should have a strong track record of extramural funding and leadership in research on substance use disorders. As part of this faculty position, this individual will have the opportunity to join as a Core Investigator of the Northeast Node of the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network housed within CTBH. The Northeast Node leads and/or collaborates on NIH-supported multi-site addiction treatment research trials designed to identify and scale-up best practices in the treatment of substance use disorders. This individual may also join in the leadership of a P30 Center Core research grant awarded to CTBH from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Successful individuals will be provided a tenure-track faculty appointment in the Department of Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College commensurate with experience. Secondary appointments in other Geisel departments may be available. Candidates who currently hold the rank of Associate or Full Professor are preferred.
Applicants for all positions must have earned a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent), have formal advanced training in the fields described above, and should have a successful track record of peer-reviewed publications, and a history of extramural funding. Expectations for teaching and mentoring are a critical part of this role, and individuals will be provided with such opportunities through membership in relevant PhD graduate programs (e.g., The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice; Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences; Molecular and Cellular Biology). Training grants in relevant areas (e.g., Science of Co-occurring Disorders; the Burroughs Welcome training fund for Unifying Population and Laboratory-based Sciences) are available to support trainees in areas relevant to successful candidates.
