The Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse, and Addictions at the University of New Mexico has a postdoctoral research opportunity on a newly awarded NIH grant examining mechanisms of behavior change in alcohol use disorder (AUD) treatment. The goal of the grant is to yield a better understanding of predictors of AUD treatment outcomes to guide precision medicine initiatives in AUD treatment. The postdoctoral researcher will also be involved with developing and disseminating data analytic tools that can be used by alcohol researchers to study robustness and heterogeneity of statistical mediation in future research studies examining mechanisms of behavior change. The primary responsibilities of the postdoctoral researcher will be to provide methodological and analytic support, including longitudinal modeling, latent variable modeling, and experience with simulation studies and programming in the R and Mplus languages.
