Our goal is to expand and build upon our current strengths in neurosciences, biobehavioral, and clinical research. We are seeking someone with expertise in tobacco and smoking research, to compliment and build on our work in behavioral and modifiable risk factors for cancer prevention and control (nicotine/tobacco, alcohol, obesity, stress, etc.).  See description below.
