By William W. Stoops

Please join me in congratulating Helen Kamens, PhD, and James J. Mahoney, PhD, who are the 2019 editorial fellows for Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology. Kamens and Mahoney were selected from a pool of eleven outstanding candidates and will begin their terms on Jan. 1, 2019.

The fellow program is intended to provide early career researchers with editorial experience through management of submissions to the journal and ongoing mentoring from the journal editor. After completion of their terms, editorial fellows are invited to join the editorial board for early career psychologists (ECP).

Kamens Helen Kamens, PhD, is the Broadhurst Career Development Professor for the Study of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention and an assistant professor of biobehavioral health at Penn State University . Her research focuses on the identification of genetic and environmental mechanisms that contribute to drug use. Trained as a behavioral geneticist, Kamens does work in both humans as well as in model organisms.

Mahoney James J. Mahoney, PhD, is an assistant professor and clinical neuropsychologist in the department of behavioral medicine and psychiatry and the department of neuroscience at the West Virginia University School of Medicine. Mahoney has accumulated over 15 years of clinical research experience, originally focusing on medication development trials for stimulant use disorder and currently focusing on investigations involving nonpharmacological interventions (e.g. neuromodulation) for opioid use disorder.
