A Postdoctoral Scholar position is available in the Patterson lab in the Department of Psychiatry & Human Behavior at the University of California, Irvine, Medical Center.

We also study potential genomic markers for these disorders. The scholar will participate in a newly funded project to investigate the contribution of electrophysiological measures of brain inhibitory function, as well as measures of cognitive function, and genomics to smoking in bipolar disorder, with the goal of providing a better understanding the high incidence of smoking in this disorder.
