Postdoctoral Traineeship in Genetic and Neurobehavioral Mechanisms of Addiction, its Risk Factors and Consequences
The University of Minnesota seeks postdoctoral fellows interested in conducting innovative multidisciplinary research in domains including behavioral neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, clinical psychology, and/or behavioral genetics. Fellows are supported by a T32 training grant funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Drug Abuse. The purpose of the training program is to provide research and training opportunities to encourage the development of multidisciplinary skills within or across the above domains as they relate to drug use, addiction, and related psychopathology. There is a particular emphasis on using large-scale neuroimaging and genetic datasets to address questions pertinent to addiction.
Fellows have the opportunity to work with any of two dozen distinguished faculty mentors (listed here). These mentors are highly multidisciplinary and collaborative. They lead both large-scale collaborative efforts as well as specific tailored research studies within their own laboratories, and use cutting-edge technologies to advance our understanding of the connections between biology and behavior. Faculty mentors hail from eight different departments and centers at the University of Minnesota, including:
2. Center for Magnetic Resonance Research
3. Computer Science
4. Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development
5. Institute for Child Development
Required Application Materials:
1) Cover letter
2) A current CV
3) 1-2 page research statement, with description of research interests and future goals
4) Up to three reprints/preprints
5) Contact information for three professional references
Submit these materials by email to Drs. Luciana and Vrieze at the emails provided above.
