Looking to join our research team? The Clinical Addictions Research Laboratory offers employment and training opportunities at several levels, including full- and part-time research assistant positions, research externships and internships, Master or Doctoral research options, and post doctoral fellowships.

Student Internship and Externship Opportunities                

Our lab occassionally establishes volunteer and/or paid internship and externship opportunities. These are made available both for individual research/work experience and in colloaboration with larger, structured educational programs. These have been established both as summer projects and as part-time experiences throughout the school year. Availability of these opportunities is generally based on the type of work that the lab is completing and the availability of staff to train and supervise.

Please contact Dr. Andrea King, for inquiries regarding setting up an internship or externship.

Full- or Part-Time Research Assistant Opportunities                

Our lab acts as a solid training ground for those interested in gaining research experience. The Clinical Addictions Research Laboratory boasts a history of extremely talented former research assistants, the majority of whom continued on to graduate and Ph.D. programs following their time with the lab. For most positions, the lab asks for a minimum 2 year commitment. Given the small size and structure of the research team, several opportunities and experiences not usually afforded to those at the research assistant level will be available during that time.

Please contact the lab coordinator, Dr. Andrea King, for all inquiries regarding part- or full-time employment. Please include a resume and cover letter detailing position sought, availability, research interests, and objectives.

Other Training Opportunities or Research Collaborations      

All inquiries regarding Master's or Doctoral research, post-doctoral fellowships, and all other training options or research collaborations should be direct to Dr. Andrea King.
