T32 Postdoctoral Positions (Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth)
The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth offers a unique postdoctoral training program in a developing area of transdisciplinary/translational research, co-occurring substance use and other mental disorders (COD) http://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/scd/. The philosophy of this program asserts that to effectively impact the problems of addiction and mental illness, one must be fully aware of their co-existence, etiologies, phenomenology, and clinical manifestations. Moreover, knowledge of integrated clinical approaches and the healthcare systems that serve those with co-occurring disorders are necessary to inform the questions to be asked in laboratory, animal and human imaging and clinical research studies.
At Dartmouth, six interconnected groups from neuroscience through implementation research, and across multiple departments provide research opportunities in intervention research, including digital health interventions, and developmental, social, behavioral, neurobiological mechanisms of addiction and co-occurring disorders. Faculty include preeminent national/international leaders and PhD and MD investigators with strong histories of training scientists. Program faculty lead diverse projects funded by many NIH institutes (NIDA, NIAAA, NIMH, NCI, NCATS and NICHD).
Appointment: Typically 2 years. Eligibility: Applicants must have completed their training in psychology, or a related discipline and be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Trainees are selected on the basis of scholastic record and commitment to a career in research related to addiction and mental health. Benefits: Stipend, medical insurance coverage, and travel funds supported by NIH Institutional Training Awards. For more information: Contact Dr. Alan Budney (email@example.com). To apply: Forward curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and 3 letters of reference to Brian Goodness, Operations Assistant (Brian.D.Goodness@dartmouth.edu).
