he CAR provides an ideal environment for training of postdoctoral fellows and graduate
students to ensure that they are well-equipped to pursue careers in translational research
in addiction and other neuropsychiatric conditions. All trainees are mentored in research
and grant writing and actively contribute to workgroups, seminars to ensure that they are
involved in all collaborations and communication.
The NIDA-funded T32 training grant held by the Center is in its 24th year
of continuous funding to support graduate students and postdoctoral fellows
in addiction science. Our mentee's have stellar track records of funding
individual National Research Service Awards and launching their independent
funded careers. Three predoctoral and three postdoctoral positions are
competitively available annually. Click for more information.
