Clemson University is proud to announce a strategic hiring initiative in Public Health Sciences as part of ongoing collaborations with the Health Sciences Center at Prisma Health.

Clemson University is described by students and faculty as an inclusive, student-centered community characterized by high academic standards, a culture of collaboration, school spirit and a competitive drive to excel.

Duties and Responsibilities
A postdoctoral fellow in Public Health Sciences is being hired to enhance and strengthen the partnership between the Clemson University Department of Public Health Sciences and Addiction Medicine Center at Prisma Health. The postdoctoral fellow will be affiliated with both institutions and will benefit from academic faculty mentors from Clemson University and clinical faculty mentors from Prisma Health. The model is designed to augment Clemson’s capacity in health-related research, support health science initiatives at Prisma Health, and develop public health scientists focused on healthcare institutions. Research activities will involve collaborating with Clemson University and Prisma Health faculty to increase grant submissions for extramural funding to organizations such as NIH, AHRQ, CDC and NSF, and to facilitate the submission of manuscripts to high impact journals in the field. This two-year full-time/12-month post-doctoral position is anticipated to proactively participate in all these research activities.

Areas of research that will be addressed during this postdoctoral fellowship include substance use disorder, including opioid use disorder, overdose prevention, infectious diseases, opioid epidemiology, clinical trials, healthcare delivery, comparative effectiveness research, and public health research. The scope of responsibilities will include literature reviews, data analysis, development of project narratives for grant submissions, and writing or assisting with manuscripts. Development of independent research topics is also desired. Women and underrepresented populations are encouraged to apply for this position.


Applicants must have an earned doctorate in Public Health Sciences, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, or relevant areas. Strong programming skills using SAS or R, and knowledge of REDCap database are desired, and interpersonal skills in addition to written and oral communication skills are also strongly preferred.

Application Instructions:

Interested applicants should submit a current curriculum vitae, three references with full contact information, and a writing sample (e.g., published manuscript) via Interfolio Electronic submissions (PDF files preferred).

Review of application materials will be immediately made upon availability of the materials, though the search will remain open until the position is filled.

Working at Clemson University

Clemson is a dynamic research university located in Upstate South Carolina at the center of the booming I-85 corridor between Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta, Ga. One of the nation’s most selective public research universities according to U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review, Clemson University is the school of choice among top students in South Carolina and is increasingly competitive for the best students in the region and the nation. More than 17,100 students select from 70 undergraduate and 100 graduate degree programs through five academic colleges: Agriculture, Forestry and Life SciencesArchitecture, Arts and HumanitiesBusiness and Behavioral ScienceEngineering and Science; and Health, Education and Human Development.

Clemson’s transformation into a leading research institution — currently attracting in excess of $140 million in externally funded research and sponsored program awards per year — is based upon an academic plan that identifies eight emphasis areas in which the University has opportunities to increase education and research, to align with South Carolina’s economic development needs and to draw upon faculty strengths. Emphasis areas include automotive and transportation technology, advanced materials, biotechnology and biomedical sciences, leadership and entrepreneurship, sustainable environment, information and communication technology, family and community living, and general education.

Major economic development initiatives that have emerged from the academic plan include the Clemson International Center for Automotive Research — a 250-acre campus in Greenville, which has generated more than $225 million in public and private commitments in just four years; an advanced materials initiative at the Clemson Research Park, which includes a new LEED Silver-certified facility; and the South Carolina Health Sciences Collaborative — an initiative of the state’s three research universities and major health-care systems.

As the state’s land-grant university, Clemson reaches out to citizens, communities and businesses all over South Carolina. The Public Service Activities division includes the county-based Cooperative Extension Service, five off-campus research and education centers through the Clemson University Experiment Station and critical regulatory responsibilities for plant and animal health.

The University boasts a 1,400-acre campus on the shores of Lake Hartwell within view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Surrounding the campus are 18,000 acres of University farms and woodlands devoted to research. A warm campus environment, great weather and recreational activities offered by proximity to both the natural surroundings and large cities are part of the Clemson Experience.


Points of interest at Clemson include the following:

The Clemson Conference Center and Inn is a state-of-the-art facility for symposia, meetings, seminars and special events. The complex includes the Madren Continuing Education and Conference Center, the Walker Golf Course and the Martin Inn.

The South Carolina Botanical Garden, a 295-acre public garden, features several thousand varieties of ornamental plants and a unique collection of nature-based sculptures.

The Robert Howell Brooks Center for the Performing Arts brings an exciting array of concert, theater, dance, comedy and other live performances to the community.
