Postdoctoral Position in Behavioral Neuroscience
Postdoctoral fellowship available immediately to work on a collaborative research project addressing aging, neuroinflammation and alcohol-related brain pathology in the laboratory of Drs. Terrence Deak and Lisa Savage. We invite applications for a NIAAA-funded postdoctoral training program (T32) in Development and Neuroadaptations in Alcohol and Addictions. This training program has a strong affiliation with the Developmental Exposure Alcohol Research Center (www.binghamton.edu/dearc), a NIAAA-funded P50 Center situated within the Behavioral Neuroscience program in the Department of Psychology.
Our laboratories engage in interdisciplinary research including rodent behavioral assessment coupled with molecular, genetic, biochemical and neuroanatomical techniques, including expertise in neuroimmunology.
