Collage of tobacco and smoking imagesDoctoral Fellowships in Regulation and User Perception of Tobacco, Marijuana, and Other Products will be available for Fall 2017. Selected doctoral candidates will work with Dr. Lucy Popova, Assistant Professor of Health Promotion and Behavior.

The doctoral fellows will learn to develop and test effective messages (including warning labels) that reduce risky behaviors associated with these products; study people’s cognitive and emotional responses to educational and marketing messages and learn to conduct quantitative (national surveys, experiments) and/or qualitative (focus groups, in-depth interviews) studies. Fellows will have the opportunity to travel and present the results at national and international conferences.
