problems for individual and high costs to the society. Existing pharmacotherapy has shown limited efficacy and therefore further investigation of possible neurochemical targets of alcohol are warranted and could lead to new pharmacological interventions.

The current project aims to reveal the underlying neural circuits regulating AUD and identifying new
treatments of AUD using the operant slef-administration model in rats. The postdocral fellow will work under the research umbrella of Associate professors Jerlhag, Ericson and Adermark. Initially, the postdoctoral fellow will have the unique opportunity to continue to set up the operant selfadministration
