The Yale Neuroimaging Sciences Training Program seeks people who want to learn about Brain Imaging applied to the study of Substance Use Disorders. We seek those with backgrounds over a wide range of fields, including clinical psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, chemistry, neurochemistry, related medical fields, physics, and other doctorate-level professionals with technical or neurobiological expertise and an interest in substance use disorders. Our goal is to provide a broad base of training needed for a successful career in interdisciplinary research on substance abuse. Training can be from basic to advanced levels, depending on the trainee’s background, and covers experimental and technological aspects of data acquisition and analysis, clinical and biological fundamentals in areas of interest to each trainee as related to substance abuse and dependence, development of research proposals, and generation of documentation to navigate today’s administrative requirements for imaging research. Starting dates are on a rolling basis. To apply, go to http://mrrc.yale.edu/education/grants/ to download the one-page application and instructions. Those from underrepresented minority groups and diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Please note that no specialized and specific training in neuroimaging or neuroscience is required: our goal is to provide the education. You need only your interest in learning and developing neuroimaging skills in your respective area of addiction research.
National Institutes of Health rules require U.S. citizenship, permanent residency, or that trainees be non-citizen nationals.
Interest in the use and abuse of alcohol and other substances.
Do not have to have specific training in neuroscience or brain imaging: we provide the training.
