Applications Now Open for Predoc and Postdoc Fellowships

The UCSF Osher Center’s Training in Research in Integrative Medicine (TRIM), is a research fellowship program funded by a T-32 Training Grant from NIH/NCCIH. We are accepting new applications for pre- and postdoctoral fellowship positions, to begin in July 2016. 

Postdoctoral Fellowship:

This interdisciplinary program is designed for physicians, behavioral and social scientists, and doctoral level practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).  The 2 or 3-year program consists of required seminars and formal course work, individual mentoring, research and creative activity, elective seminars and classes, teaching, and a number of optional activities.  Trainees are strongly encouraged to undertake coursework in the Advanced Training In Clinical Research Program at UCSF.

TRIM post-doctoral fellowships are open to individuals with doctoral degrees (e.g., MD, PhD, DO, ND, etc.) The Fellowship includes an annual stipend, plus funds for tuition for related course work.

More information about the application process may be found on our postdoctoral fellowship webpage.

Those interested in applying for a postdoctoral fellowship must submit an application by November 20, 2015.

Predoctoral Fellowship:

This one-year pre-doctoral fellowship has been developed to support medical students who are taking a research year, or PhD students in relevant fields in biological or social sciences, to pursue an intensive period of research activities and research training at the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine. We typically expect pre-doctoral fellows to work closely with a research mentor at the Osher Center, in most cases developing work that is based in an existing research program. We encourage potential applicants to contact research faculty they are interested in working with to develop a research project to be performed during the fellowship period.

Applicants must be in a qualifying PhD or MD/DO program, and be able to devote most of their time to fellowship-related work. The fellowship includes a stipend and tuition for related coursework.

Those interested in applying for a predoctoral fellowship must submit a letter of intent (350 word max) along with a CV and a short application form by September 10, 2015. Full application (by invitation only) is due November 2, 2015.

More information about the application process may be found on our predoctoral fellowship webpage.
