Open Positions

Postdoctoral Fellowship – Duke Global Digital Health Science Center

 The Duke Global Digital Health Science Center is seeking a full-time postdoctoral fellow. Founded in 2014, the Duke Digital Health is the first of its kind — an integrated research program for the discovery, evaluation, and dissemination of digital health obesity and behavior change interventions for medically vulnerable populations. Our mission is to close health disparities using digital health.

The postdoctoral fellow will work for up to two years, while being mentored by Center faculty – Drs. Gary Bennett and Dori Steinberg. We are particularly interested in applicants with expertise using any type of digital health intervention to address obesity and diet and physical activity behaviors.  Ideally, the fellowship will begin in Summer 2017. The annual salary will be based on NIH guidelines. Successful applicants will have an earned doctorate (e.g., Ph.D., Sc.D., MD/MPH) in public health, nutrition, health behavior or a similar topic. U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status is necessary due to funding requirements. Working with his/her mentors, the fellow will be expected to contribute to the Center’s ongoing efforts, while pursuing independent research activities. The fellow will be provided with professional development funds and will have access to the Center’s software engineering team.

Review of applications will begin by March 15 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications should include a cover letter with a statement of research interests, curriculum vitae, 1-2 sample publications (if available), and names of two references, ideally from the training director or doctoral committee chairperson/advisor. Submit questions and applications (as one PDF) to hallie.davis.penders@duke.edu. For more information about the Duke Global Digital Health Science Center, please visit www.dukedigitalhealth.org.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Digital Health – Duke University School of Medicine

The Duke ADHD Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine invites applications for a new post-doctoral fellowship in the area of digital health and ADHD. The fellowship, which will be sponsored by a gift from Multi-Health Systems, Inc., will include 2 years of full-time support, including funds for pilot research and travel, to develop new and innovative approaches for managing ADHD in any age group using digital health approaches.

The specific areas of focus will be open, but could include user-centered design of novel online or app-based assessment and treatment monitoring; the use of digital technology/mobile health applications to provide education and care for underserved populations; the integration of mobile-based digital health information with electronic health records; or the development and UX evaluation of innovative support tools for patients and families with ADHD. The Duke ADHD Program is an internationally recognized clinical and research center that was established in 1989 by C. Keith Conners. Currently, faculty and post-docs at the Duke ADHD Program receive more than $8 million in extramural research funding annually and serve more than 200 new patients in the outpatient clinic. Duke University and the School of Medicine provide a wide range of resources to enhance the experiences of the fellow. These include the Duke Global Digital Health Science Center, mHealth@Duke, the Duke Institute for Health Innovation, and the Duke Clinical Research Institute. Interest and demonstrated experience in digital health applications to mental health are required for the position. Preference will be given to those applicants with a degree in clinical or school psychology and a research focus on ADHD, though other doctoral fields and focus areas will be considered.

It is expected that the position will begin on July 1, 2017 or shortly thereafter. Interested applicants should send a CV; cover letter detailing their experiences in digital health and vision for early career development; and names and contact information for at least 3 references to Scott H. Kollins, PhD; Professor and Vice-Chair for Research Strategy & Development, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; Director, Duke ADHD Program; scott.kollins@duke.edu.
