Dr. Susan Bergeson is seeking Ph.D. applicants with a desire to work on research relating to
the molecular neurobiological consequences of alcohol drinking. Her laboratory uses several
mouse models and ongoing projects are focused on the genetic predisposition to alcohol
drinking and sensitivity to alcohol-related responses, as well as the consequences of alcohol
exposure in brain. Trainees will have opportunities to gain experience in behavioral neuroscience,
biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology and pharmacology.
Inquiries should be made via e-mail to: Susan. Bergeson@TTUHSC.edu.
