*UVM Internal ONLY*VCBH invites UVM junior investigators (typically at the rank of assistant professor and yet to receive a R01 Grant) to apply to join our team as a COBRE (Center of Biomedical Research Excellence) Project Director. We support and mentor
a maximum of five junior faculty projects at any one time. Each of our five Project Directors (PDs) receive generous research funding, which covers 50 percent of effort for up to three years. PDs also receive mentoring by senior faculty with the
overarching goal of having them succeed in obtaining their first NIH independent research grant (specifically an R01). Download the complete download (PDF) for further details
and how to apply.
The Vermont Center on Behavior and Health (VCBH) located at the University of Vermont (UVM) Larner College of Medicine (LCOM) announces THREE 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. Diann Gaalema, the fellow will participate in the conduct of an ongoing NIDA/FDA-funded trial on the use of tobacco in vulnerable populations, including people with affective disorders, as well as work on and develop
new research opportunities within the area of tobacco use in cardiac patients.
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.
