Position Purpose

The Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH) is currently seeking a Research Assistant to join a newly funded study evaluating an emergency department-based clinical initiative for the treatment for opioid use disorder. Emergency Departments remain on the front lines of the opioid epidemic and this position offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to a multi-site study with a public health impact in high-need, low-resource settings.

The project is managed by the Northeast Node of the Clinical Trials Network (CTN), spanning the rural communities of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. The CTN provides a unique research infrastructure for conducting practical, rigorous, and highly impactful trials focused on improving the treatment of substance use disorders (SUDs) and promoting widespread implementation and sustainability of effective and accessible SUD care in community systems across the nation. The Northeast Node is based out of the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH) at Dartmouth College.

Minimal travel to the Node offices in Lebanon, NH is required. Note: Continuing employment is based on availability of grant funds.
