Additional Positions (Postdoctoral and Fellowships)

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW - INTRAMURAL PROGRAM [5/9/08] The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow to conduct research in the Cellular Neurophysiology Section, Cellular Neurobiology Research Branch, Intramural Research Program (IRP). Projects will involve molecular and anatomical approaches, as well as mouse models, to define neuronal pathways that may participate in drug addiction. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a closely related subject, with 5 or less years of postdoctoral experience. Knowledge of electron microscope techniques, gained through training and experience, is required. Salary will be set commensurate with experience and accomplishments. The fellowship will become available after November 1st, 2008. Candidates must submit a CV with bibliography and three letters of recommendation (from noncollaborators) to Dr. Marisela Morales, at Applications must be received by September 30, 2008 Ð late applications will not be considered.

INVESTIGATOR (TENURE-TRACK) [4/21/08] - the Intramural Research Program (IRP), National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is seeking an outstanding tenure-track scientist to develop a neuroscience research program to better understand the role of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR), and their interactions in the development and compulsive nature of addiction. Candidates with experience employing an integrative approach to the study of receptor interaction, with the application of molecular, biochemical, and behavioral techniques, are encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate must possess a Ph.D., M.D., or D.O. degree and have a strong publication record in receptor-receptor interactions and their implications in CNS disorders. In view of the required integrative approach, the successful candidate will be expected to collaborate with other research groups within NIDA - a proven ability to establish and sustain collaborative work is highly desirable. Candidates must submit a CV, a statement of proposed research objectives and goals (3 pages or less), 4 letters of recommendation (from noncollaborators), and a copy of the doctoral degree (with a certified English translation if in a foreign language) to: Carol Sneeringer, Intramural Program Specialist, NIDA IRP, 251 Bayview Boulevard, Suite 200, Room 04A524, Baltimore, Maryland 21224. Telephone 443-740-2465, FAX 443-740-2865, Email: Application materials must be received by close of business on June 30, 2008 - late applications will not be considered

DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers

Postdoctoral Fellow Position Available in Teen Tobacco Addiction Treatment Research Clinic (TTATRC) [2/11/02] - A postdoctoral position is available in the Teen Tobacco Addiction Treatment Research Clinic (TTATRC), Intramural Research Program (IRP), National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Baltimore, Maryland. TTATRC is an active and innovative research program, and this position offers an excellent opportunity for academic growth. The successful candidate must hold a doctorate degree in experimental psychology, public health (epidemiology) or statistics, or medicine, and will combine academic and technical skills relevant to all aspects of addiction tobacco research. Although prior experience in this field is desired, it is not necessary. Candidates must be experienced in data and statistical analyses. Superior communication kills, both written and oral, are required, as scientific reports and presentations will be an important component of the assigned duties. In addition, interpersonal skills and some clinical experience are desired. The individual will be expected to assist in the design and conduct of research protocols, analyze and interpret data, produce articles for publication in peer-reviewed journals. The successful candidate will also participate in other activities of the Department. Applicants must submit a Curriculum Vitae with bibliography, statement of research interests and goals, three letters of recommendation and a copy of doctoral degree (if in a foreign language, include a certified English translation) to:

Eric T. Moolchan, M.D.

5500 Nathan Shock Drive, Baltimore, MD 21224
Phone: (410) 550-1846
Fax: (410) 550-1656
The NIH is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer, and applications from women and minorities are encouraged.

Junior and senior fellowship positions available in the Molecular Neurobiology Branch, National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Intramural Research Program (IRP), in Baltimore, MD. Candidates with interests in the molecular genetics of substance abuse and related disorders, and expertise in genetic or molecular pharmacologic approaches are especially encouraged to apply, as are those with expertise in transgenic approaches and human genetics. The laboratory investigates the molecular biologic and genetic bases of drug addiction using human and mouse model genetic approaches. Special emphasis is on development and validation of novel human genome scanning approaches, characterization of human variability at candidate gene loci and development of transgenic/knockout mouse model systems. Characterization of mouse models of addiction utilizes a variety of genetic and neurbiological techniques.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree(s). Competitive salary and benefits available. Applicants should submit a Curriculum Vitae with bibliography, copy of doctoral degree and 3 letters of reference from non-collaborators to:

George Uhl, M.D, Ph.D.
