The Center is committed to the development and training of the next generation of scientists. Opportunities for doctoral and postdoctoral training in cannabis addiction research are available from all of the participating laboratories.

[ June 2008: The Center is currently soliciting applications for open postdoctoral positions. ]

Scientific training in the Center will be based around traditional foci within component laboratories including scientific methods, general logical thinking, paper writing, data presentation, ethics in science, and human/animal subject use. Trainees will communicate their data to relevent annual Society meetings such as the Society for Neuroscience and the College on Problems of Drug Dependence.

One major goal for this Translational Research Center is to provide scientific training in both clinical and preclinical research traditions. Therefore, trainees will not simply be "exposed to opportunities" but will follow an organized training plan to develop skills in multiple scientific techniques, models and domains. The Center trainees will acquire the technical skills to conduct core aspects of the respective component projects as well as direct knowledge of the advantages and limitations of the approaches.
