Postdoctoral Fellowship in Drug Abuse Research – UT Health San Antonio

The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is seeking qualified, highly motivated applicants for a NIDA T32 Postdoctoral Training Program. Fellows will be matched with a primary faculty mentor while also having access to the wealth of knowledge held by all of the mentors in the Addiction, Research, Treatment & Training (ARTT) Center of Excellence. We pride ourselves on providing integrated research training for those seeking broader learning experiences than what is typically available in a traditional postdoctoral program. Our program’s mentors have expertise in the areas of molecular pharmacology, electrophysiology, neurochemistry, biochemistry, neuropharmacology, behavioral pharmacology, clinical trials, and human laboratory studies.

Fellows will participate in career development opportunities, informal discussions with distinguished professionals, grant writing and reviewing workshops, and will attend and present at the locally hosted Behavior, Biology, and Chemistry: Translational Research in Substance Use Disorder Conference. Our postdoctoral fellows will be a part of a team that’s making significant advances in the understanding and treatment of substance use disorders. The T32 program provides support from entry to an illustrious career ahead with an initial 1-year appointment, renewable for up to 3 years.
