[#DIV28SUPER] Postdoctoral fellowship


Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders

Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth


The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth offers a unique postdoctoral training program in a developing area of transdisciplinary/translational research, co-occurring substance use and other mental disorders (COD) http://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/scd/The philosophy of this program asserts that to effectively impact the problems of addiction and mental illness, one must be fully aware of their co-existence, etiologies, phenomenology, and clinical manifestations. Moreover, knowledge of integrated clinical approaches and the healthcare systems that serve those with co-occurring disorders are necessary to inform the questions to be asked in laboratory, animal and human imaging and clinical research studies. At Dartmouth, six interconnected groups from neuroscience through implementation research, and across multiple departments provide research opportunities in social, behavioral, neurobiological mechanisms, treatment development (psychosocial and pharmacological), technology-assisted treatment and dissemination, and health services  and implementation. Faculty include preeminent national/international leaders in COD research, MD and PhD investigators with strong histories of training scientists, and a team of support faculty committed to establishing a structured training program in COD. Research teams include neuroscientists, psychopharmacologists, behavioral health technologists, clinical trials and contingency management experts, health services researchers, anthropologists, statisticians, economists, and clinicians. Program faculty lead diverse projects funded by many NIH institutes (NIDA, NIAAA, NIMH, NCI, NCATS and NICHD), and also multiple foundation, Department of Education, and VA supported studies.
