Job Title:Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Department:Medicine | IM Medical Oncology

The Center for Tobacco Research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) is recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The fellow will work primarily with Dr. Alayna Tackett on research related to tobacco control and tobacco regulatory science. Projects may include human laboratory research focused on understanding the behavioral and health effects associated with use of synthetic cooling agents in tobacco/nicotine products, respiratory effects related to the use of e-cigarettes, and behavioral correlates associated with oral nicotine pouch use. Opportunities are available for interdisciplinary mentoring and training in other tobacco research areas, as our faculty expertise and institutional resources range from bench-top science to population-level policy and regulation. The environment of the Center for Tobacco Research and broader University provide access to unparalleled resources to enrich fellows’ research training experience.

Training will be individualized for the fellow to develop competencies in tobacco research and specific skills and expertise tailored to the fellow’s research interests. In addition to individualized mentoring, the fellow will have opportunities to take part in seminars and workshops that will provide training in preparing research grant applications, tobacco-related research methods, advanced statistical techniques, and other areas.

The fellow will be part of an interdisciplinary research team and will gain experience leading experiments focused on human laboratory research, and conducting and overseeing data collection, including quality control monitoring procedures. The fellow will also gain experience in leading the preparation of abstracts for presentation at national conferences and manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication using data from ongoing and recently completed studies supported by the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration Center for Tobacco Products. The fellow will also receive support and be encouraged to develop their own grant applications (e.g., F series, K series, or institutional research grants). Additional activities will be determined by the fellow and mentor.

Initial appointment will be for 1 year, with renewal for subsequent year(s) contingent on progress and available resources to support continued training.
