Research in our lab focuses on cognitive and addiction neuroscience. We combine experimental psychology, brain imaging (MRI and PET) and clinical assessments to examine psychological constructs and neural processes of importance to addictive disorders, including alcohol and cocaine misuse. In other studies we employ pharmacological manipulation (e.g., catecholaminergic agents) to examine the neurochemical bases of cognitive control in an imaging setting. Current work is funded by the NIAAA, NIDA and NSF.
Salary is commensurate with previous experience. Initial appointment is for one year, renewal upon satisfactory performance review. Please send CV and two letters of reference or address questions to: C.-S. Ray Li at [log in to unmask].
