Announcing the SSA’s new Addictions Professorship scheme

We are delighted to announce the launch of the SSA’s new Addictions Professorship scheme, to support senior addictions academics’ growth and to strengthen addiction research in the UK. Aiming to support individuals who are already senior academics with established expertise and who wish to move to become part of UK academic growth in addiction research, and in collaboration with co-funding host universities, the scheme will create new addictions professorial positions.

This scheme is now open for enquiries and applications.



As an organisation, we continue to function during the developing pandemic.

We are following all government and Charity Commission guidance in respect of staff and reporting issues.

Our funding schemes remain open and we are continuing to programme our conferences planned for November 2020.
