PhD Fellowship in Tobacco Control Policies
A Doctoral Fellowship in Tobacco Control Policies will be available for a selected doctoral candidate to work with Dr. Michael Eriksen, Dean of the School of Public Health at Georgia State University, and the research team at the Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science (TCORS).
Prospective fellows should have a strong interest in tobacco control policies as well as good communication skills—both written and oral — and excellent ability to analyze data. Funded through a five-year, $19 million grant, the Georgia State’s TCORS team is working to increase the understanding of the diversity of tobacco products, the communications and marketing of those products, particularly at the point of purchase, and how economics and public health policies affect tobacco use. The data and results from these studies will have direct implications for future FDA regulatory actions.
