Research project areas include epidemiology of prescription/illicit substance misuse and harms; substance use related co-morbidities (e.g., mental health, infectious disease); evidence-based prevention, treatment and policy; marginalized (e.g., correctional, street) populations. Project/training tasks may involve: literature searches/reviews; data processing, extraction, analysis; bibliographic tasks; contributing to scientific manuscript writing, etc. Interested candidates should have strong interest in, and ideally a basic understanding of: concepts of health (knowledge in specific topical areas is a bonus) and scientific research methods (e.g., literature/data search techniques; quantitative & qualitative data and analyses). Furthermore, applicants should be well-organized, be good team-workers and have strong verbal/written communication skills. Only senior undergraduate or graduate students actively enrolled in a university degree program are eligible.
