Training in Neuroimmune-Neurobehavior Addiction Research

Training in Neuroimmune-Neurobehavior Addiction Research
Federally funded pre-doctoral and post-doctoral training

Goal:
To train biomedical scientists at the pre- and post-doctoral levels in an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the interactions of drug abuse with the nervous and immune systems, and integrates our understanding of these physiological interactions with their behavioral counterparts.

Prerequisites:
Pre-doctoral candidates must have earned a bachelor's degree, have been accepted into the University of Minnesota Graduate School, and be interested in interdisciplinary aspects of addiction-related research. Post-doctoral candidates must have a Ph.D., D.V.M., or M.D. and be interested in laboratory-based neuro-immune/neurobehavior addiction research. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be supported by this program.

Focus of research:
The PharmacoNeuroImmunology program focuses on training in areas that intersect four disciplines: pharmacology, psychology/psychiatry, neuroscience, and microbiology/immunology.

Contacts:
Dr. Tom Molitor or Ms. Yorie Smart, University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, at smart006@umn.edu or 612-625-5746

Application deadline: Applications are accepted year around.
