Harvard Medical School-Mclean Hospital
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Center-Behavioral Science Laboratory

Applications are invited for a junior faculty research position (tenure-track) at the Harvard Medical School in the Behavioral Science Laboratory at the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Center, McLean Hospital. This is an excellent opportunity for a well-trained, productive, behavioral or biological scientist (PhD or MD/PhD) to join an ongoing Behavioral Science Research program and to develop independent research projects supported by extramural funding. The scientist would participate in an ongoing research program to evaluate new pharmacotherapies for the treatment of cocaine abuse and to examine sex/gender factors in drug abuse. The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Center at McLean Hospital is an interdisciplinary basic and clinical research program concerned with evaluating the safety and effectiveness of new pharmacotherapies for drug abuse and sex/gender differences in substance abuse. Research at the Center currently emphasizes the behavioral pharmacology of substance abuse, the neuroendocrine concomitants of cocaine and nicotine abuse, and the effects of drugs on the brain as assessed by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The McLean Hospital is an affiliate of the Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital, located in Belmont, a suburb of Boston, MA.
