The preclinical Division of Behavioral Biology (DBB) at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has openings for postdoctoral fellows interested in joining a productive research program with excellent resources. Researchers in the DBB conduct preclinical behavioral pharmacology research and work collaboratively with our clinical research colleagues in the Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit (BPRU). Fellows will have the opportunity for a mentored fellowship experience on multiple research projects and procedures in a setting where there is potential to develop an independent research career. We are especially seeking applicants interested in the behavioral pharmacology of cannabis, opioids and alcohol. There are opportunities to work with rodents and nonhuman primates using a wide range of procedures (rodent e-vape, neurobehavioral performance in social processing, sustained attention, and memory, physical dependence and withdrawal, stress and anxiety testing, place preference, pain sensitivity, and operant behavior for food and drug self-administration and cue reactivity).
Eligibility: Ph.D. or equivalent degree, U.S. citizen, permanent resident. A broad range of backgrounds will be considered, including experimental psychology, neuroscience, biology, and pharmacology.
Contact: Please email Elise Weerts, Ph.D. (email@example.com) and Catherine (Cassie) Moore, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org) with current CV and 3 references. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled.
