Research Fellowships at Virginia Commonwealth University

Opportunities exist for pre- and postdoctoral training fellowships at Virginia Commonwealth University in the area of drug abuse research. Support is provided by an NIDA training grant and local sources of funding. Most pre-doctoral fellows will be doctoral students in either Pharmacology and Toxicology or Psychology. Visit the Web sites for more information and application procedures.

There are also opportunities for postdoctoral fellowships in a wide range of molecular biology, pharmacology, or animal and human behavioral sciences laboratories. A partial listing of the faculty who would be available as mentors includes Robert Balster, Patrick Beardsley, Imad Damaj, William Dewey, Thomas Eissenberg, Richard Glennon, Aron Lichtman, Katherine Nicholson, Michael Miles, Susan Robinson, Dana Selley, Keith Shelton, Laura Sim-Selley, Dace Svikis, Sandy Welch and other faculty associated with the Institute for Drug and Alcohol Studies. See the IDAS web site for more information on our drug abuse faculty and their areas of research interest. Contact any of these faculty persons if you are interested in postdoctoral training in their laboratories or Dr. William Dewey if you are uncertain about which lab but want information on the various opportunities. Many faculty members are engaged in multidisciplinary collaborative research and could provide training in such a research setting.
