Fellowships at ARG provide research training in the study of alcohol and drug 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 abuse, alcohol dependence, and alcohol-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.

Please submit your application by December 31, 2016 to be considered for a start date between June 2017 and May 2018.
