Psychology Training in Alcohol Research

This 2-year fellowship provides training for individuals who wish to pursue a career in alcohol research, with an emphasis on the etiology and prevention of problem drinking and alcohol dependence. As this topic will be approached from both psychosocial and bio-behavioral perspectives, individuals with background training in relevant areas of psychology (clinical, health psychology, behavioral neuroscience, social, developmental, cognitive, behavioral pharmacology, etc.) are encouraged to apply. Both human and animal research is supported.

Dr. Donovan serves as a primary faculty member and mentor for a NIAAA-funded T32 pre- and postdoctoral training program. This program is housed in the Center for the Study of Health Risk Behaviors (CSHRB) within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Principal Investigator is Mary Larimer.
