Postdoctoral Research Scholar position available in the Laboratory of Alcoholism and Addictions Neuroscience in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences within the Morsani College of Medicine at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary research program to participate in NIH-funded, translational alcohol abuse disorder neuroscience research. The postdoctoral candidate will receive the theoretical and technical training to engage in preclinical experimentation that integrates behavioral animal models (encompassing motivational, negative affective and cognitive control domains) with state-of-the-art neuroscientific techniques, from gene to behavior, to elucidate neuroadaptations in limbic and cortical systems that promote maladaptive behavioral regulation in alcohol dependence and neuropsychiatric disorders. Highly motivated candidates with a strong work ethic and published experience using pharmacological, immunohistochemical, molecular or genetic/epigenetic approaches to understand and/or modify behavior are urged to apply. Inquiries about this position can be addressed by contacting the Principle Investigator (Brendan Walker; bwalkerAThealth.usf.edu). If interested in applying for this opportunity, please complete the required application process on the Careers@USF website (Job ID: 23081) by 11/3/2019. Starting salary will be according to NIH recommended guidelines with a benefits package that includes medical, dental and retirement plan options.
The highly motivated candidate must have a Ph.D. in a biological psychology- or neuroscience-related discipline and be capable of successfully working with others, supervising trainees, independently conducting experiments, analyzing data, writing manuscripts and disseminating research findings.
