VCBH Training Opportunities:
The Vermont Center on Behavior and Health (VCBH) located at the University of Vermont (UVM) Larner College of Medicine (LCOM) announces TWO NIH postdoctoral research fellowship opportunities in our internationally-recognized center
of excellence in tobacco and substance use disorder research.
Working with Dr. Stacey Sigmon, the fellow will help to lead ongoing randomized clinical trials evaluating low-barrier, technology-assisted buprenorphine treatment for individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD), as well as develop
new research opportunities aimed at expanding OUD treatment access in rural, underserved areas.
Working with Dr. Andrea Villanti, the fellow will assist with ongoing population studies related to youth and young adult tobacco and substance use and vaping prevention, and randomized controlled trials of nicotine messaging.
The fellowship will include secondary analysis of cohort and trial data to inform public health programs and policy, with opportunities to develop new research projects in ongoing and pilot studies.
