Post-doctoral training in the Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology of Cancer

This program offers a set of instructional and research opportunities to exceptional postdoctoral candidates in order to promote their careers as independent researchers in the interdisciplinary “field” of genetic and molecular epidemiology of cancer. The program blends together in a highly interactive fashion a group of mentors and trainees from cancer research, molecular biology, genetics, epidemiology, and biostatistics. The program is defined by three main components: 1) a specialized core curriculum that covers the key disciplines and their intersections; 2) additional educational experiences to complement their research and educational background and interest; and 3) focused research projects with multiple mentors.  Each trainee will also be required to extend their research experience by writing a mock NIH proposal. Individuals trained in this program will have the skills vital to deciphering the causes of cancer, ultimately providing valuable knowledge regarding the prevention and treatment of this complex disease. Interested candidates should send a CV and names of three references to John Witte (jwitte@ucsf.edu).

Women's Health Fellowship

The UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health (COE) is dedicated to developing a cadre of well-trained researchers dedicated to issues in women's health. To achieve this goal, the UCSF Women's Health Clinical Research Center (WHCRC) is offering a new fellowship program that meets the long-term goals of increasing both the amount and quality of multidisciplinary research conducted on women's health and the number of individuals with successful research careers.

This fellowship program builds on the research success of UCSF, the institution's commitment to women's health, and the availability of an extensive array of ongoing research projects in women's health. Nationally and internationally renowned women's health scholars can be identified in almost every school, department, and research unit. This breadth of expertise is supported by a nationally recognized clinical program in women's health. UCSF is one of the original six National Centers of Excellence in Women's Health designated by the Office of Women's Health in the Department of Health and Human Services.
