Jeremy J. Clark, Ph.D.
Acting Assistant Professor
Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences
Center for Drug Addiction Research
Jeremy received a degree in Psychology from California State University in 2001. Later that year he joined the lab of
Ilene Bernstein in the Behavioral Neuroscience program at the University of
Washington. He received a PhD in Psychology from that department in 2006. In 2007 Jeremy took a position as a postdoctoral fellow with Paul Phillips in the
department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington and was promoted to Acting Assistant Professor in 2010.
Jeremy is supported by Public Health Service National Research Service Award, F32 DA024540 (Effect of Drug Sensitization on Phasic Dopamine During Pavlovian Conditioning), from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
