Faculty opportunity in tobacco control policy research at Dartmouth

Tobacco Control Researcher
Faculty Position
Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth-Norris Cotton Cancer Center
New Hampshire
The Norris Cotton Cancer Center, a component of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth seeks to
expand its capacity to conduct tobacco control and tobacco regulatory research. We welcome
applications for a full-time tenured or tenure-eligible faculty appointment in the Cancer Control Research
Program. As an expansion of our capacity to conduct tobacco research we seek a scientist with a focus
on health and behavioral outcomes among tobacco users. Outcomes of interest include quitting and
relapse, experimentation among young adults, health consequences of tobacco use, use of reduced harm
tobacco products, use of multiple products, communications about lung cancer screening and screening
We have a broad research group interested in expanding the scope studies we undertake and will
welcome interviews with applicants that have an MD, PhD and/or ScD with backgrounds in psychology,
psychiatry, communications, tobacco policy, public health, economics, decision science, and law at the
assistant, associate or professor levels. Young investigators should be fellowship trained or the
equivalent and likely candidates for K funding support. Mid-career and senior investigators should have a
strong track record of funding from NIH and other sources and a willingness to engage in tobacco
regulatory research sponsored by the Food and Drug Administration. Applicants will be evaluated based
on their publications, ability to maintain an externally funded research program, and the degree to which
their research synergizes with other members of the Cancer Center. Our research group has a strong
commitment to registry research and aims to develop clinical registries for smokers and those undergoing
lung cancer screening. These registries may form the basis for communications research on how to better
support quitting and how to effectively engage eligible smokers in lung cancer screening. Appointments
will be made in a scientifically appropriate academic department at the Geisel School of Medicine at the
rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor and will be expected to participate in teaching and
mentoring of graduate and medical students. Successful candidates will receive competitive salaries and
start-up packages.
Curriculum vitae, including extramural grant support, statements for current research and future research
directions, and contact information for at least 3 references should be sent in PDF format to:
