Scholar in Cannabinoid Science

The goal of the CMCR is to foster the careers of future generations of basic and clinical scientists who will help develop deeper understanding of the potentials of medical cannabis as well as the interactions of cannabis and cannabinoids on health and social and behavioral functioning. The Center addresses a broad range of areas in cannabinoid science, including the treatment of various medical and psychiatric conditions, pharmacology, animal models, and possible adverse effects (e.g., cognition, driving) of cannabis use. Details on the CMCR can be found at

The scholar would work with CMCR leadership on projects advancing the mission of the Center and would be expected to ultimately develop his/her own grant submissions.

Previous research experience is desired. Selection criteria include the degree to which the applicant matches with the above-mentioned areas of interest.
