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 will have exposure to 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.  

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.

Postdoctoral trainees will receive an annual salary commensurate with their experience, approximately $37,000-$51,000, according to the 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,

Applications are due January 27, 2010, for fellowships beginning July 1, 2010.
