[DIV28M] Call for Papers Special Issue in Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology: Please Repost on Div 28 and Div 50 listservs

Call for Papers: Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology


Special Issue for August 2015 on: Sex Differences in Drug Abuse: Etiology and Implications for Prevention and Treatment


The goal of this special issue is to broadly highlight how males and females differ in their risks for substance abuse, in their responses to treatments, and in their relapse to substance use after a period of abstinence. Relevant approaches include (but are not limited to) laboratory behavioral, social behavior and environmental context, brain development and function, and the role of genetics, hormones and neuropeptides. Both animal and human methods are appropriate for this issue. Collaborative manuscripts that bridge animal and human findings are especially valued.


This special issue is intended to showcase the importance of studying sex differences in drug abuse and how this research might lead to more tailored approaches for prevention and treatment. Laboratories engaged in research in this area may submit review articles or primary research reports to Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology to be considered for inclusion in this special issue. Manuscripts should be submitted as usual through the APA Online Submission Portal (www.apa.org/pubs/journals/pha/), and the cover letter should indicate that the authors wish the manuscript to be considered for publication in the special issue on Sex Differences in Drug Abuse.  All submissions will undergo our normal peer review. Manuscripts received no later than March 16, 2015 will be considered for inclusion in the special issue. We strongly encourage individuals to contact us in advance with their ideas and ideally a draft title and abstract.


Questions or inquiries about the special issue can be directed to the Guest Editor of the issue, Brady Reynolds, PhD, at brady.reynolds@uky.edu or the Editor, Suzette Evans, PhD at se18@columbia.edu.

Postdoctoral Position in Behavioral Pharmacology


The Behavioral Pharmacology Laboratory at Davidson College invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the Department of Psychology. The successful applicant will join an NIH-funded laboratory examining behavioral and pharmacological factors contributing to substance abuse and dependence using animal models (e.g., drug self-administration). Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree in pharmacology, neuroscience, or psychology, and experience with animal models of behavior. Ideal candidates will have a background in the experimental analysis of behavior with basic expertise in neuroscience and pharmacology. The person accepting this position will play a major role in overseeing two large NIH-funded projects, and typical activities will include (but will not be limited to) collecting data, writing manuscripts, presenting data at scientific conferences, and preparing extramural grants. Because the individual will work with a diverse research team that includes undergraduate students, candidates who have previously worked with undergraduate populations through teaching or research are especially desirable. Undergraduate teaching opportunities may be available to those with interest, but it is not a requirement of the position. Salary will be competitive.


Interested candidates may find additional information and apply online at https://jobs.davidson.edu. Complete applications should include a cover letter, current CV, and three letters of reference (instructions are provided on the website as to how to submit these documents).
