Qualifications An earned doctorate in psychology, social or behavioral science, public health, or closely related field, strong methodological skills, and a demonstrated record of research and scholarship are required. Research interests should complement and expand existing expertise in CHR, which includes substance use; injury prevention; behavior change; maternal/child heath; obesity; respiratory health; CBPR; risk communication; health education; policy and systems change; and rural health.
