We are in search of motivated individuals with an exemplary research background to join a team of researchers conducting multi-disciplinary research in the area of substance abuse. Our current NIH funded projects include studies: (1) examining behavioral, neural, and genetic factors underlying risk for substance use disorders; (2) examining biological influences on behaviors among problematic drinkers; (3) applying biomarkers of alcohol consumption (e.g., transdermal alcohol monitors, phosphatidylethanol) to monitor real-world drinking; and (4) developing substance use interventions based on empirical data. The NRLC offers training in the areas of psychopharmacology (Dr. Donald Dougherty), behavioral neuroscience and neuroimaging (Dr. Ashley Acheson), psychophysiology (Dr. Charles Mathias), clinical psychology (Dr. Stacy Ryan), and biochemistry (Dr. Nathalie Hill-Kapturczak). The fellow will be provided active research mentoring and be engaged in manuscript and grant writing. Responsibilities include study coordination and supervision of study personnel, participant recruitment, screening, psychological testing, statistical analyses, and manuscript/grant preparations. Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in psychology or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline. Multiple-year appointments are available and dependent on satisfactory performance. Candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a letter outlining interests and career goals, and representative publication reprints. Materials can be sent by email (ude.ascshtu|yesol#ude.ascshtu|yesol) or by mail to Donald M. Dougherty, Department of Psychiatry, MC 7793, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive, San Antonio, TX 78229-3900.
