Columbia University is looking for promising pre- and post-doctoral researchers interested in a unique multidisciplinary T32 training program on HIV, criminal justice, and substances abuse. Their mission is to provide training in the prevention, treatment, and care of HIV and drug abuse among individuals in the criminal justice system with a strong emphasis on individuals involved in alternatives to incarceration and community supervision who are affected by health disparities. This is the first NIDA grant multidisciplinary training program that brings together faculty members from the Columbia School of Social Work and the Mailman School of Public Health, who will participate in interdisciplinary mentoring.
