Funding: K12 MGH Career Development Program in Substance Use and Addiction Research
The K12 Career Development Program in Substance Use and Addiction Medicine, based at MGH and funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the NIH, is recruiting post-doctoral clinician scientists to start on or after July 1, 2020.
The program offers a multidisciplinary clinical research training program based at MGH and Harvard Medical School. It aims to provide scholars with a concentrated research experience, mentorship, and advanced training to prepare them for leadership in addiction medicine through independent research careers in academics or industry or influential positions in government.
The program will support (1) advanced education and training in research methods relevant to a scholar’s area of interest, and (2) a mentored research experience in the addiction research programs at MGH or affiliated hospitals and institutions. Research and training proposals are sought on a broad range of substance use and addiction medicine topics that include but are not limited to laboratory, clinical, or epidemiologic research into such topics as risk factors, neurobiologic mechanisms of addiction and recovery, treatment development, implementation of validated interventions, factors associated with recovery, and policy.
Applications are due 5 pm EST on November 15, 2019.
