Notice of Intent to Publish Funding Opportunity Announcements to Promote Implementation Science (R01) and Dissemination and Implementation Studies (R18)
The first PA, which will likely utilize an R01 mechanism, will focus on advancing the field of implementation science by developing and refining methods and measures of implementation. AHRQ is particularly interested in deepening our understanding of factors that influence the organization and delivery of health care. The second PA, which will likely utilize an R18 mechanism, will focus on disseminating and implementing patient-centered, evidence-based interventions. These projects will study how to scale up and spread these interventions in new settings and with new populations using known effective implementation strategies.


The editors at the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health are organizing a special issue on HIV, substance abuse, and addiction as public health issues. This special issue aims to fill the void in the research targeting vulnerable populations by calling for papers that examine the cultural determinants influencing pathways to substance abuse disorders among racial/ethnic minority populations, and the concomitant impact on the persistent and exponential rate of HIV and addictive behaviors within these groups. The deadline for submissions is November 30. Find more information HERE.

The journal, Addiction Science & Clinical Practice, has also issued a call for papers for a special series on substance use and the HIV care continuum. Submissions may include original research, reviews, meta-analyses, and study protocols that advance understanding of how substance use and its treatment contribute to the HIV care continuum, in U.S. and international settings. Submissions are desired between now and December 1, 2016 and will be published upon acceptance. Find more information HERE.

The Department of Psychology and the Center for HIV/AIDS Educational Studies and Training (CHEST) at Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for an Open Rank (Assistant/Associate/Full) tenure track or tenured position. Individuals with research areas that complement and enhance the current research conducted at CHEST are encouraged to apply, and we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in mobile Health (mHealth)-based HIV work, neurocognitive aspects of HIV, and RCTs of behavioral interventions. Scholars whose work also cuts across existing departmental content areas (e.g., Health Psychology and Clinical Science, Neuroscience, Stress, Psychoneuroimmunology) will be given special consideration. Find the full posting HERE.

The Department of Community Health and Prevention at the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health seeks applicants for a tenure track/tenured position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. They are strongly interested in candidates whose research addresses socio-behavioral determinants of health and/or the development and evaluation of socio-behavioral interventions to address pressing community health challenges.
