Postdoctoral Fellow - Neurocircuitry of Binge Alcohol Drinking - until filled
POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY in the Department of Psychology and the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
100% of the fellow’s time will be dedicated to research. The NIAAA-funded pre-clinical research program of the Thiele Laboratory is directed at studying the neurobiology and neurocircuitry that modulates excessive binge-like alcohol drinking in mice, and how changes in this neurocircuitry contribute to the transition to dependence. The focus is on neurotransmitter and neuropeptide circuits within the extended amygdala and brain regions implicated in modulating the reinforcing properties of alcohol.
The Thiele Laboratory takes advantage of cutting-edged technologies, including pharmacogenetic, transgenic, and viral vector approaches. The postdoctoral fellow will be exposed to a range of behavior and molecular procedures, including conditioning and behavioral characterization, site-directed stereotaxic brain surgery, brain microinjections, and various procedures for measuring protein and mRNA levels in brain. A candidate with a background in neurosciences and with an interest in the neurobiology of alcoholism is preferred.
Interested candidates should send or email a letter of interest, CV, and three letters of recommendation to:
Todd E. Thiele, Ph.D.,
Department of Psychology,
Davie Hall, CB#3270,
University of North Carolina,
Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3270
