Postdoctoral Fellowships in Tobacco Control Research Academic Background Required: Doctorate/Equivalent Degree
The purpose of the fellowship is to attract individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds in medical, biological, social, behavioral, and policy sciences to develop a new generation of academic leaders in tobacco control. Upon completion of training, fellows will be well positioned to be active participants in crucial policy debates about the future development and implementation of tobacco control interventions.
The fellowship supports two years of postdoctoral training in tobacco related research. Postdoctoral fellows participate in diverse training including both didactic coursework and individualized mentoring to build a personalized research program.  Fellows have come from an array of disciplines, including medicine, public health, nursing, economics, political science, law, sociology, psychology, and cell biology.  Prior tobacco research experience is relevant, but not necessary for acceptance.
We offer individual mentorship with UCSF faculty along with courses in tobacco specific topics, health policy, cancer control and prevention, grant and scientific writing skills, career development, interdisciplinary research, and biostatistics.  This program is funded by an R25T training grant from the NIH/National Cancer Institute.  UCSF is a global leader in tobacco science, a World Health Organization collaborating center, and home of the Legacy Tobacco Documents Library.
Postdoctoral trainees will receive an annual salary commensurate with their experience, approximately $41,264 – $51,884, $2000 above the standard NIH stipend scale.  Applicants may learn more about the Center, the fellowship program, and review the list of UCSF faculty and their research interests at our website, and apply at .
Applications are due January 22, 2014, for fellowships beginning July 1, 2014.
