Sciences: Neurobiology of Addiction
Supervising Faculty Members: Wendy J Lynch
Specialization: Neurobiology of Addiction
Research Focus: My laboratory uses rat models to delineate the neurobiological basis of addiction. I am particularly interested in determining the biological basis of sex differences in vulnerability to addiction.
Job Description: Students will run the behavioral sessions and help maintain the animals. If interested, studies will learn surgical procedures and data analysis. 10 hrs/week plus one weekend/month is required.
Required Skills, Courses, Resources, or Background: Prior laboratory handling skills would be beneficial, but are not required.
Training: Students will need to undergo animal handler training prior to starting in the laboratory.
