Recognizing the difficulty placed on individuals to relocate during the COVID-19 restrictions, applications are being accepted on a rolling basis until positions are filled.
New fellows may elect to begin their fellowship after July 1, 2020, and may opt to start fellowship activities remotely from their current location.
The fellowship supports two years of postdoctoral training in all aspects of tobacco control research:
· Our program stresses the skills needed to conduct research in diverse, collaborative transdisciplinary settings.
· We emphasize leadership in catalyzing the integration of multiple disciplines and translating science to policy and clinical practice.
· Postdoctoral fellows will have exposure to diverse training, including both didactic coursework and individualized mentoring to build a personalized research program.
Prior tobacco research experience is relevant, but not necessary for acceptance. Fellows have come from medicine, public health, nursing, economics, anthropology, political science, law, sociology, psychology, and cell biology.
UCSF is a global leader in tobacco science, a World Health Organization collaborating center, and home of the Truth Tobacco Industry Documents. We offer individual mentorship with UCSF faculty along with courses in tobacco, cannabis and e-cigarette specific topics: health policy, cancer control and prevention, grant and scientific writing skills, career development, interdisciplinary research, and biostatistics. We place a high priority on developing a fellowship program that reflects the diverse communities we serve. We encourage qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply.
Postdoc fellows receive an annual salary, commensurate with experience, of approximately:
$51,000 – $61,000.
