BEHAVIORAL INFORMATICS POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
BOSTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE AND BOSTON VA HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
Boston University School of Medicine and the Boston VA Healthcare System are seeking applications for a two-year post-doctoral fellowship. This behavioral informatics program is internationally recognized for its excellence. The Fellowship offers training in the broad discipline of behavioral informatics with a focus on training in interventional informatics (the study of the use of computers and other information technologies in the direct delivery of behavioral health services). The faculty is known for the development and evaluation of a wide range of automated interventions that promote self-care in patients with chronic disease and that reduce behavioral risk factors for disease (e.g., diet, physical activity, smoking, alcohol and drug use, etc.). Fellows receive didactic education in informatics, computer science, public health, health communications, behavioral medicine and other curricula. Fellows complete one or more research projects involving the development and/or evaluation of informatics systems. The Fellowship requires a PhD, MD or equivalent degree. A background in psychology, health communications or medicine and a strong interest in information technology are desirable. US citizenship or permanent residency is required.
Send a statement of interest to MISUAdministrativeAssistant@bmc.org. Applications will be reviewed and accepted using a rolling admissions process until April 15, 2010.
