Postdoctoral Position at the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies
A postdoctoral position is currently available in the laboratory of Dr. Joyce Besheer at the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. The laboratory is currently investigating how neuroadaptations that occur as a consequence of stress hormone exposure functionally modulate sensitivity to the interoceptive (discriminative stimulus) effects of alcohol and alcohol reinforcement. Another focus of the lab is on evaluating mechanisms underlying interoceptive sensitivity to alcohol during adolescence and later in adulthood. Studies utilize behavioral techniques including drug discrimination and operant self-administration; behavioral pharmacology techniques including microinjections; molecular techniques including immunohistochemistry and Western blots.
Applicants should have prior experience in one or more relevant areas and prior animal behavioral training is desirable. Applicants must have a doctoral degree and can send a letter of research interests, CV, and the names of 3 references to Dr. Joyce Besheer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
