The Alcohol Research Group, in association with the School of Public Health, University of California Berkeley, is currently accepting applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowships sponsored by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) for research training in alcohol studies. Fellowships at ARG provide research training in the study of alcohol use and problems, and are oriented toward the pursuit of basic and applied socio-behavioral and epidemiological research.  Training focuses specifically on study of the prevalence, distribution, etiology, and treatment (both formal and informal) of alcohol use disorders and related problems.  However, some focus is devoted to drug use and drug-related problems.  Health disparities are a central theme of both our training program and ARG broadly. Current annual stipends range from $48,432 to $53,184, depending on experience, and we provide health insurance and travel funds.  Additional employment is often available. Applicants must be either a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident in order to apply.  Please visit our website at for more information about our program and how to apply.  Applications must be received by December 31, 2018 to be considered for a start date between June 2019 and May 2020.
