The objective of PMI’s R&D centre is to develop and assess products with the potential to reduce the risks of smoking-related diseases. This project is at the core of our business: our vision is that one day all adult smokers who otherwise wouldn’t quit will switch to what we call reduced-risk products, or RRPs*.

 If you tick all of these boxes, then you are the one we want for our
Postdoctoral Program within our epidemiology and biostatistics department.

As part of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, you will play a key role in finding innovative solutions for increasing the value of our scientific evidence packages and ultimately improving speed to the market.

Project accountabilities:

  • Full assessment of the existing data collection tools that capture and characterize tobacco product use and consumer use behaviors. Identifying the strengths and limitations of these tools in the context of the new products and resulting product use patterns
  • Development of a new data collection tool that is adaptable and expandable and can incorporate product use characteristics into to the collection and interpretation of product use and product use behaviors
  • Testing, refinement and validation of the new data collection tool to ensure that it meets the requirements and can be used in the context of characterizing consumer behavior
  • Testing the tool in markets with different product availability and product use drivers
  • Perform the analysis and report the outcome from the testing and use of the new data collection tool, including a comparison to the standard tools that exist to assess product use
  • Publication of the results.

*Reduced Risk Products (“RRPs”) is the term we use to refer to products with the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm in comparison to smoking cigarettes. PMI’s RRPs are in various stages of development and commercialization, and we are conducting extensive and rigorous scientific studies to determine whether we can support claims for such products of reduced exposure to harmful and potentially harmful constituents in smoke, and ultimately claims of reduced disease risk, when compared to smoking cigarettes. Before making any such claims, we will rigorously evaluate the full set of data from the relevant scientific studies to determine whether they substantiate reduced exposure or risk. Any such claims may also be subject to government review and authorization, as is the case in the USA today
