NEWS AND EVENTS
Postdoctoral Researcher, Washington State University

A position is available for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Rita Lokensgard's laboratory at the Department of Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience, at the Washington State University School of Veterinary Medicine, in Pullman WA. Ongoing NIH-funded projects explore the neural mechanism of drug context-induced cocaine-seeking behavior, drug context-induced impulsive decision-making, and drug-related contextual memory reconsolidation. These studies utilize sophisticated behavioral and molecular assays in combination with pharmacological, pharmacogenetic, and optogenetic manipulations. All research is conducted in a highly collaborative research environment, within the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Program, at the state-of-the-art Veterinary and Biomedical Research Building in Pullman. Requirements: Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and strong experience in Neuroscience, Cell Biology, or another relevant discipline. Expertise in molecular biology, pharmacology, confocal microscopy, or rodent self-administration behavior is preferred but is not necessary. Successful candidates must have excellent communication skills, a strong publication record, and interest and eligibility in NIH-funded career-development opportunities. Furthermore, the ideal candidate should be independent, creative, hard-working, and genuinely excited about research conducted in the laboratory. Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae, contact information for three professional references, and a statement of interest to Rita Fuchs (ritafuchs@vetmed.wsu.edu). The review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
