Postdoctoral positions: Developmental Alcohol Research Training (DART) Program at the University of Pittsburgh

The Developmental Alcohol Research Training (DART) Program (T32 AA007453) at the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) announces the availability of postdoctoral fellowships.

DART approaches training in alcohol research from a developmental, inclusive perspective. Opportunities include participation in research projects with mentors (e.g., developmental changes in antecedents and consequences of alcohol use, neurobiology of addiction, and structural and social determinants of health inequities), a biweekly addictions research seminar, a weekly career development and grant writing seminar, high quality courses offered at Pitt (including the option to earn a master’s degree in public health), and ability to attend an exceptional breadth of talks by national experts in mental health, statistical analysis, public policy, social justice, and neuroscience. Trainees have access to a highly collaborative faculty committed to high quality training in an affirming environment that fosters inclusivity and values diversity across identities, backgrounds, and perspectives. Through this multilayered approach, the DART T32 supports trainees in becoming highly successful independent investigators engaged in collaborative, multidisciplinary research on alcohol use and related problems.



Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. and a demonstrated interest in alcohol-related research. We are committed to increasing representation and equity in academia. Individuals with minoritized identities are encouraged to apply. In accordance with NIH regulations, applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident; current NIH levels of stipend support can be found at



Review of applications has begun and will continue until available positions are filled. Please send CV, statement of research background and future interests (including potential mentors), and three reference letters to:
