The UNM Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse, and Addictions (CASAA)
announces three new postdoctoral positions on our NIAAA Institutional
Research Training grant. The goal of the grant is to prepare future NIH
scientists to conduct research to (1) elucidate the processes of change in
drinking behavior, (2) develop and test effective methods to effect change
through self-change, treatment and indicated prevention, and (3) develop
and test models to disseminate knowledge of effective interventions to
diverse populations. Postdoctoral fellows work with one of the core
training faculty: Barbara S. McCrady (PI and training program director),
Eric Claus, Jon Houck, Theresa Moyers, Matthew Pearson, J. Scott Tonigan,
Kamilla Venner, Katie Witkiewitz, or W. Gill Woodall.

In anticipation of renewal funding, *we have three openings to support
postdoctoral fellows in the 2015-2016 academic year*. Applicants must meet
the following criteria: (1) demonstrated interest in the alcohol field as
evidenced by prior coursework, research, and/or clinical experience; (2) a
record of research productivity as evidenced by research presentations and
peer-reviewed publications; and (3) a commitment to a career in alcohol
research. All fellows must be US citizens or permanent resident aliens.

As part of the training program, fellows must be engaged in full-time
research training, participate in a weekly Addictions seminar, define a
training plan and achieve specific competencies during each year, and limit
outside employment. For continued support post-doctoral fellows will be
expected to prepare and successfully submit an NIH grant application.

The training program provides a NIH-defined stipend (based on years since
doctoral degree), tuition remission, support for professional travel up to
$2000 per year, and support for training- and research-related expenses.

Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, 3 letters of
recommendation, 1-page statement of interest, letter stating their
qualifications for and interest in the training grant, and their graduate
transcripts to Barbara McCrady. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling
basis.  Submit all materials electronically to:
