The SRNT describes the status of Fellow as a, “distinction conferred by the Society on members in recognition of outstanding contributions to the field having to do with the generation of new and useful knowledge; meritorious accomplishment can include contributions to scientific research, clinical practice, public health, public policy, regulation, legislation, or advocacy. Significant accomplishments in dissemination of science and exemplary service to the Society also will be considered. The program is intended to be prestigious while appropriately and inclusively recognizing SRNT members who have achieved this level of excellence.”

Prior to his current role at the University at Buffalo, he was a senior scientist and head of the behavioral research program on tobacco use at the Addiction Research Foundation in Toronto, Canada. Dr. Kozlowski was also a professor of preventive medicine and biostatistics and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. In 1990, he moved to Penn State University where he was professor and head of the department of biobehavioral health in the College of Health and Human Development. In 2006, Dr. Kozlowski joined the University at Buffalo to start the department of community health and health behavior and in 2008 was appointed dean of the School of Public Health and Health Professions, a role he served in until June 2014.
In addition to his professional roles, Dr. Kozlowski has served on the editorial boards of Drug and Alcohol Dependence Journal of Substance Abuse and Psychology of Addictive Behaviors. He is also a senior editor of Addiction Journal and an associate editor for Tobacco Control.
