Postdoctoral Fellowships in Alcohol Research available at the University of Connecticut (UConn) School of Medicine
The Alcohol Research Center at UConn offers NIH/NIAAA-funded fellowships for postdoctoral training within the following areas:
Our postdoctoral trainees attend a weekly seminar designed to provide them with a common knowledge base in theory, experimental design, and analytic methods. At other times, trainees work closely with a mentor around a topic of mutual interest.
