We have a diverse fellowship program that provides 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. We encourage qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply.

The purpose of the fellowship is:

  • To prepare individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds in medical, biological, social, behavioral, and policy sciences to join the next 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.
  • Postdoctoral fellows will have exposure to diverse training, including both didactic coursework and individualized mentoring to build a personalized research program.

University of Michigan, Population Studies Center

The Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan expects to have openings for two postdoctoral fellows sponsored by National Institute on Aging (NIA). Applicants for the NIA positions do not need to have a background in aging research (although it is desirable). However they must propose an aging-related research project which focuses on the health of the elderly or near-elderly population as part of their application. Fellows devote most of their time to independent research, but may also take selected courses and/or teach on a light-load basis. Positions offer exceptional opportunity for collaboration with staff of the Population Studies Center and Survey Research Center on major projects in the U.S. and overseas.

National Institutes of Health Clinical Center

The Department of Bioethics is pleased to offer a limited number of two-year post-doctoral and post-baccalaureate fellowships. Fellows participate in the activities and the intellectual life of our interdisciplinary department and study ethical issues related to biomedical research, clinical practice, genetics, biotechnology, public health, and health policy. They conduct mentored theoretical and empirical research on a range of bioethical fields of interest. For a typical fellow, this research yields multiple first-authored publications in premier academic journals. In addition to research and writing, fellows participate in weekly bioethics seminars, case conferences, ethics consultations, and IRB deliberations, and have access to multiple educational opportunities at NIH. No prior bioethics experience is required or expected.

Boston Medical Center

The Researching Effective Strategies to Prevent Opioid Death (RESPOND) group at Boston Medical Center and BU Schools of Medicine and Public Health seeks a postdoctoral research fellow to help develop and employ a simulation model of opioid use disorder to investigate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of novel interventions and models of care to address the epidemic of overdose in the U.S. To inquire contact: benjamin.linas@bmc.org

The post-doctoral fellow will be part of a team of investigators who are building a compartmental simulation model of opioid use disorder and its treatment. The model will simulate the population of people with opioid use disorder in Massachusetts and it will be calibrated to state-specific estimates of disease prevalence, admissions to treatment facilities, and overdose deaths. We will then employ the model to investigate strategies for improving access to and retention on medications for opioid use disorder. The post-doc will lead model development with the help of a computer programmer and a data analyst. A team of faculty with experience in simulation modeling will supervise the post-doctoral fellow. Model development will include Bayesian calibration approaches for fitting simulation inputs, as well data analysis both for developing Bayesian “priors” and for estimating calibration targets. The post-doc will lead working groups within the larger team, and will guide all aspects of model development. Ultimately, when the model is completed, the post-doctoral fellow will employ the model to develop the evidence base needed to formulate new policy and treatment guidelines for opioid use disorder. We anticipate the post-doctoral fellow will present model findings at
national conferences and will author multiple peer-reviewed manuscripts.

Requires a PhD, preferably in mathematics, statistics, engineering or another quantitative field, although outstanding applicants from other fields may be considered. See attached pdf for necessary experience and knowledge.
