Colleagues, Jeremy Wolfe and FABBS are looking to identify researchers who are willing to share their experience preregistering and reporting experimental results in NIH's proposed clinical trials framework. See below – share with your colleagues who may be able to provide insights to help develop a more reasonable policy.

Dear All (on my informal NIH Clinical Trials email list)
Hope life is treating you well. I am hoping you have some ideas for us. "Us" is FABBS (Federation of Associations of Behavioral and Brain Sciences). We are still working to mitigate the not-so-good effects of the NIH's Clinical Trials policy. As you probably know, at the moment, the rules for registering and reporting studies are in abeyance for a couple of years while the NIH tries to develop a sane system of registration. SO…here is where you come in. The US National Library of Medicine (NLM) is looking researchers to help them develop registration systems that work.
We are looking for people who preregistered their studies and have now published these. You don't have to have preregistered in CT.gov. I, for example, have been using the Open Science Framework.
FABBS has been asked to identify 10 such investigators who are doing work that might be problematic to register in ClinicalTrials.gov. NLM is particularly interested in NIH-funded basic experimental studies involving humans ("BESH") work that has any of these four characteristics.
1. Does the study/project/paper consist of multiple experiments (Exps 1-N in your paper), not just one big "clinical trial".
2. Does the analysis use an outcome measure that was not pre-specified. For example, maybe Reviewer 2 asked for an item analysis or maybe for a new control experiment. That wasin't in the original pre-registration.
3. Does meaningful reporting of the data require recording non-aggregated results (like individual observer data).
4. Does the project includes preliminary experiments that serve largely to optimize procedures.
So……do you have some ideas about researchers who we could approach?
Self-nomination is fine….encouraged….They/you would need to give us a bit of time and a bit of documentation. Who can you think of?

[#DIV28SUPER] University of Alabama at Birmingham is hiring multiple faculty positions in Addiction (open rank)
Please see the ad below and feel free to pass on to others who may be interested. We are hiring several positions in addiction.
Join the UAB team and help us improve the health of Alabama and the Southeast
The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Medicine (SOM) is leading the recruitment of multiple investigators (up to 15) for a major strategic increase in its portfolio across clinical and translational re-search efforts to conduct observational and interventional studies aimed at improving health outcomes broadly across the population of Alabama, the Southeast region, the United States, and globally. Recruitment is for tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure-earning faculty at all ranks and includes academic appointment in one or more of 27 academic departments across the SOM, many of which rank in the top 10 nationally in NIH funding. All applications will be considered, but priority will be given to those with emphasis (or focused) in: Value-Based Care, Public Health, Health Informatics, Digital Health, Implementation Science, Behavior Change, Health Economics, and Rural Health. Particular areas of focus currently include: Health Behaviors (e.g. Physical Inactivity, Poor Nutrition, Obesity), Infectious Diseases, Screening and Prevention in Primary Care, Health Care Quality Improvement, Mental Health, Infant Mortality, Cardiovascular Disease, Kidney Diseases, Diabetes, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Cancer Outcomes, and Health Disparities.
Driven by an intensely collaborative and entrepreneurial character, UAB is one of the leading economic engines of the State, with a nearly $4 billion budget and a statewide economic impact exceeding $7 billion annually. UAB is Alabama’s largest employer with more than 23,000 employees; it supports more than 64,000 jobs statewide. With more than 1,300 full time faculty and almost 1,200 medical and graduate students, the UAB SOM ranks 21st nationally in NIH research funding and in the top 10 for all public institutions. Research grant funding at UAB exceeded $527 million in 2018.
UAB is one of 42 institutions with an NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), which supports translational research and creates a supportive environment to promote junior investigators. The vision of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) and its tristate Partner Network is to reduce health dis-parities in diseases disproportionately represented within the Deep South. The CCTS works closely with local constituencies to address health issues of particular significance to our region and share best practices in pursuit of community engaged studies to enhance culturally sensitive participation, safety, confidentiality and effectiveness. The CCTS is also committed to the conduct of ethical, scientifically rigorous clinical and translational research by providing a range of specialized services, resources and expertise and by catalyzing collaborative, coordinated data analytics and informatics that meet the needs of its scientific constituencies across the Partner Network and the CTSA consortium.
The scientists recruited through this initiative are expected to establish outstanding, independent academic programs supporting all of the core missions of the University: research, education, and service. They will work individually and collaboratively to undertake innovative scientific discovery, grow extramural funding, engage in and promote education of learners at all levels, and support the critical service missions of the University in delivering and improving health care.
Applicants must upload their Curriculum Vitae, one page letter of interest, and 3 professional references to https://uab.peopleadmin.com/postings/5517. Application deadline is December 5, 2019. Review of applications will continue until all positions are filled. Applicants must have an MD, PhD or MD/PhD. Selected applicants will join a diverse and vibrant academic community that values and is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and must be able to work in a team environment.
UAB is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer committed to fostering a diverse, equitable and family-friendly environment in which all faculty and staff can excel and achieve work/life balance irrespective of, race, national origin, age, genetic or family medical history, gender, faith, gender identity and expression as well as sexual orientation. UAB also encourages applications from individuals with disabilities and veterans.
A pre-employment background investigation is performed on candidates selected for employment. In addition, physicians and other clinical faculty candidates who will be employed by the University of Alabama Health Services Foundation (UAHSF) or other UAB Medicine entities, must successfully complete a pre-employment drug and nicotine screen to be hired.
