Department of Health Education and Behavior

Center Director Faculty Position


The Department of Health Education and Behavior at the University of Florida (UF) invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track faculty position at the Associate or Professor rank to lead the UF Center for Digital Health and Wellness. Founded in 2010, the Center supports cutting edge research and provides training opportunities involving the application of information and communication technologies to promote health and wellness, prevent disease, reduce addiction, and increase health equity. The Center is housed in a 2,000-square-foot facility consisting of state-of-the-art computers, servers, displays, research and development workstations, and audio and video production technology.


We are currently seeking a behavioral or public health scientist with a funded research program that uses communication technologies (e.g., eHealth, mHealth, social media) for health promotion and who can provide visionary leadership for continued Center development as a collaborative research enterprise that complements and supports Department, College, and other UF research programs. Candidates with theoretical frameworks relevant to health behaviors; an established research record in the modification of health-related behavioral risk factors using mobile communication devices, Internet, and/or social media; and experience with multidisciplinary collaboration and implementation science/dissemination of web-based health behavior change programs are especially encouraged to apply. The Director position carries a faculty appointment in the Department of Health Education and Behavior, which has established research programs in behavioral aspects of substance misuse, obesity, HIV/AIDS, chronic disease self-management, health disparities, and digital health applications. The Department offers undergraduate (both residential and online), masters, and doctoral programs in health education and behavior. Student mentoring and involvement in Center research and training activities are expected. Candidates must possess an earned doctorate in health education, health behavior, or an appropriately related field in public health or the social and behavioral sciences. A record of extramural funding and excellence in teaching is required.


UF is a dynamic Carnegie Foundation Research University with very high research activity that educates nearly 50,000 students annually.

[#DIV28SUPER] New SAMHSA NPRM - restoring access to patient SUD data

Dear Colleagues,


SAMHSA has developed a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) that appears to address a problem identified by scientists conducting substance use disorder research using diagnostic data obtained from patient records (see attached press release).  As I understand it, the problem emerged after rules were changed regarding access to that data in 2013.   


The NPRM is open for comment until April 11 and I am trying to collect information from the research community to see what APA should consider submitting in response.  If you conduct research in this area, I’d appreciate hearing from you back-channel as to whether your concerns have been adequately addressed by this NPRM.


Nick Bagley who co-authored this opinion piece last May in the NEJM writes optimistically about the new NPRM today in his blog, the Incidental Economist.


Please share with colleagues who may not subscribe to these lists.

[DIV28_ANNOUNCEMENT] Special Issue of Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology

Dear Colleagues-

Please consider submitting an article for this special issue. The due date is less than one month away.

Thank you,

Bill Stoops.

Call for Papers: Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology


Special Issue for August 2016 on:

50th Anniversary of APA Division 28: The Past, Present and Future of Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse


Division 28 was formed in 1966 to provide a home within APA for psychologists interested in the behavioral effects of psychoactive or central nervous system drugs and chemicals.  Today, the Division's overarching mission is to encourage the advancement of knowledge on the behavioral effects of psychotropic drugs and toxicants, including (a) disseminating research-based information on psychopharmacology and substance abuse within APA, in educational settings, and to other scientists; (b) encouraging the application of the results of psychopharmacology research to human affairs; and (c) consideration of education and policy issues pertaining to psychopharmacology, behavioral toxicology, and substance abuse. 


During 2016, we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Division 28. The proposed special issue will highlight the scientific contributions and historical milestones of APA's Division 28 and its members.  We invite manuscripts on the important scientific, clinical and translational contributions of Division 28 members, as well as commentary on the future of psychopharmacology and substance abuse research. In addition, collaborative, research-based manuscripts that disseminate new data about psychotropic drugs and toxicants are especially encouraged. Such papers could include novel research findings about the behavioral pharmacology of emerging drugs of abuse or newly developed compounds in non-human animals or humans (see [a], above). Research-based papers could also present new information on how aspects of psychopharmacology or substance abuse impact human affairs (see [b], above). Scholarly reflections on the notable changes that have occurred in the areas of psychopharmacology and substance abuse, particularly pertaining to education and policy (see [c], above), during the five decades since the Division was founded are also welcome.


Authors may submit primary research reports, review articles or commentaries to Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology to be considered for inclusion in this special issue. Manuscripts should be submitted as usual through the APA Online Submission Portal (www.apa.org/pubs/journals/pha/), and the cover letter should indicate that the authors wish the manuscript to be considered for publication in the special issue on the 50th Anniversary of Division 28.  All submissions will undergo our normal peer review. Manuscripts received no later than March 1, 2016 will be considered for inclusion in the special issue. We strongly encourage individuals to contact us in advance with their ideas and ideally a draft title and abstract.


Questions or inquiries about the special issue can be directed to the Guest Editors of the issue, William W. Stoops, PhD, at william.stoops@uky.edu or Stacey C. Sigmon, PhD at stacey.sigmon@uvm.edu.  Correspondence can also be directed to the Editor, Suzette M. Evans, PhD at se18@cumc.columbia.edu.
