The Laboratory of Addictive Disorders, in the Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics at Boston University School of Medicine, is looking for 1-2 post-doctoral fellows. Research in the laboratory is aimed at understanding the neurobiological substrates of alcohol addiction and stress-related disorders. Specific projects include the investigation of specific neuronal pathways in alcohol addiction. Studies are carried out on environmental and genetic rodent models, using a multidisciplinary behavioral, pharmacological, biochemical, and molecular approach. Some of the techniques currently used in the laboratory are: self-administration, intracranial surgeries, place conditioning, alcohol dependence induced by vapor exposure, real-time PCR, in situ hybridization and RNA scope, immunohistochemistry, anatomical tracing, DREADDs, and viral vector technology to study site-specific gene knockdown in the brain.
To apply, please send your CV and research statement to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Pharmacology or related disciplines is required. Those with a strong background in behavioral neuroscience and consider themselves independent, intensely motivated to succeed, and hard-working are encouraged to apply.
