Outstanding, highly motivated candidates with a Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology or behavioral neuroscience will be considered. We are especially interested in pursuing a neural network approach to aging and disease. Experience with rodent behavioral testing and neuroanatomy are key skills. Preference will be given to candidates with experience with development and aging. Strong writing, analytical and statistical skills are needed for grant-related publications.
Additionally, applicants must:
1) have a strong background in, and ongoing commitment to, alcohol or addictions research
