Employment and Training OpportunitiesCenter for Addiction Research


Current Openings

The 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. (We will have this linked to the T32 page with the announcements)
