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). All inquiries may be made to Mark Smith, the principal investigator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Davidson College is a highly selective, nationally recognized, Liberal Arts College located 20 minutes north of Charlotte, North Carolina. Davidson is strongly committed to achieving excellence and cultural diversity, and welcomes applications from women, members of minority groups, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the college's mission.
