Rutgers Center for Tobacco Studies is home to one of nine newly funded Tobacco Centers for Regulatory Science (TCORS). Our TCORS is hiring junior faculty scholars at the rank of Instructor or Assistant Professor (rank commensurate with experience). The goal of our TCORS is to accumulate a comprehensive and rigorous body of knowledge on the effects of tobacco communication, including advertising, marketing, packaging and labeling on regulatory-relevant outcomes of risk perceptions, use, behavior and exposure for combustible tobacco products, given their disproportional burden on public health.
The successful applicant will be supported by a robust career enhancement core and expected to develop their own tobacco research agenda as well as work on funded tobacco research projects in the Center. Applicants with specific interest and expertise in tobacco policy and regulation, tobacco industry marketing, non-cigarette tobacco products, population modeling, and health communication are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will join the Center for Tobacco Studies, led by Dr. Cristine Delnevo as well as become a member of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey. Faculty appointment will be in an appropriate Rutgers University School and department.
An attractive recruitment package will include competitive salary and start-up funds.

A doctoral degree is required. Demonstrated experience in tobacco regulatory science is preferred; such experience can be demonstrated via co-investigator effort on TRS research grants, completed fellowships at TCORS, and/or K award or R03/R21 funding focused on tobacco regulatory science.
