RESEARCH TRAINING IN DRUG ABUSE BEHAVIOR
UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY
Pre-Doctoral and Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Positions Available
The University of Kentucky is recruiting pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellows for our program on Research Training in Drug Abuse Behavior. A Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grant Award (T32 DA035200) supports the research-training program that is directed by Craig R. Rush, PhD and Hannah K. Knudsen, PhD. This training program offers translational and interdisciplinary research training on bio-behavioral factors in drug abuse at the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral level. The program is designed to prepare trainees for roles in which basic, clinical, and translational research is conducted on bio-behavioral factors in the prevention, cause, course, and treatment of drug abuse. Training faculty consist of 28 individuals drawn from seven different academic and research units of the University. Graduates of this program are actively involved in research, teaching, publishing articles, and becoming independent drug abuse researchers.
TO APPLY: Potential applicants should review the research interests of training program faculty online (http://www.mc.uky.edu/behavioralscience/research/nida.asp) and contact potential faculty mentors regarding training opportunities. A complete application includes: 1) a letter from the applicant describing their career objectives and how training in drug abuse behavior would further their goals (include tentative project title, abstract, aims, and the behavioral outcome measure); 2) a current curriculum vita (CV); 3) a copy of the graduate academic record (i.e., official transcript); 4) a letter from the proposed training faculty expressing their level of enthusiasm for the applicant; and 5) three letters of recommendation. The complete application should be submitted to Dr. Rush electronically via email as a single PDF. Letters of recommendation should be submitted separately but also electronically. The application deadline for current openings is April 15, 2014.
SELECTION CRITERIA: Consistent with the goals of the training program, evaluation of applicants will be based on: 1) relevant prior research experience; 2) prior publication record; and 3) commitment to an independent research career or other professional public health career. Applicants must be a US citizen or hold a permanent residency visa.
