Professor June Tangney and Research Associate Professor Jeffrey Stuewig are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to collaborate on research at the interface between social-clinical-community psychology and criminology. This NIDA-funded position supports work on two longitudinal studies of the implications of jail inmates’ moral emotions and cognitions for post-release substance use, criminal recidivism, and HIV-risk behaviors. Four additional years of funding are anticipated from NIDA to support continued longitudinal follow-up of former inmate participants, as well as several randomized intervention studies with jail inmates to reduce substance use, HIV risk, and recidivism and to enhance offenders’ post-release reintegration. Postdoc duties include: creating and maintaining databases, conducting sophisticated statistical analyses, collaborating with lab members on empirical articles, assisting in the design of new studies, and assisting in the supervision of our outstanding undergraduate and graduate research assistants. Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in social, clinical, or developmental psychology or criminology; outstanding quantitative skills, including experience with SPSS and Mplus; and excellent writing and presentation skills. Experience with longitudinal data and the study of change over time is highly desired. Experience working with offender populations is also a plus.
