Dr. Garland is seeking fellows with a PhD in Clinical Psychology, Neuroscience, Social Work, Health Psychology, Nursing, or a related discipline. Applicants must have good scientific writing skills with a solid publication record, clinical research experience, and strong quantitative data analytic skills.

Eric Garland, PhD, Director of the Center on Mindfulness and Integrative Health Intervention Development (C-MIIND) and Associate Dean for Research at the University of Utah, is seeking postdoctoral fellows to support federally-funded, biobehavioral clinical research on mindfulness-based interventions for chronic pain and opioid misuse at C-MIIND, which currently oversees more than $40 million in grants funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Defense (DOD), and Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). In particular, fellows will help conduct randomized clinical trials (RCTs), ecological momentary assessment (EMA) research, and psychophysiological studies of Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE), a manualized intervention for addiction, stress-related conditions, and chronic pain. For additional information on MORE and current research, see www.drericgarland.com.
