The Substance Use and HIV Research Group (http://suhn.fiu.edu) at the Center for Children and Families at Florida International University (FIU) is recruiting for a full-time Post-doctoral Research Associate for a two-year appointment, beginning no later than Fall 2019, with the possibility of extending contingent upon funding. The positions will be housed in the Center for Children and Families (CCF) at FIU (http://ccf.fiu.edu). Primary responsibilities of the Post-doctoral Research Associate include data analysis and manuscript preparation of results from multiple large research studies focusing on neurocognitive risk factors and consequences of cannabis use among teens and among adults living with HIV. The position will also involve participation, data analysis, and manuscript preparation for the national, landmark Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study (http://abcd-study.org). Qualified applicants will have prior human subjects research experience in the areas of substance use or HIV, as well as proficiency in advanced longitudinal statistical methods.


The CCF is one of six University-Designated Preeminent Programs and has 38 faculty associates—most of whom are faculty in the FIU Psychology Department--and more than 100 trainees in masters, doctoral, and professional programs who study child and adolescent mental health. The CCF currently has more than $70m of research funding—mostly NIH and IES, and largely based on this CCF funding, the FIU Department of Psychology is ranked 9th among Psychology Departments in the U.S. in research funding (2017 NSF HERD Report). The CCF has extensive relationships with the Miami-Dade Public Schools, the fourth largest school district in the U.S. and many community agencies in Miami. The CCF also has a close affiliation with and extensive funding from The Children’s Trust, the largest funder of children’s services in Miami-Dade County. Opportunities may exist for additional collaboration and for grant writing and transition into a permanent faculty position.

Review of applications will be ongoing with an initial deadline for applications by April 5, 2019. The targeted hiring date is July/September, 2019. Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV, research statement, and two representative published research articles to Dr. Raul Gonzalez (raul.gonzalezjr@fiu.edu).
