Work With Us

The PRISE Center has received a T32 grant from The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to support five outstanding post-doctoral scholars with interdisciplinary training in implementation science and health equity approaches to help transform the uptake and delivery of evidence-based interventions for heart and lung diseases in clinical and community settings. The positions start in September 2023. PRISE is especially interested in current postdocs looking for one more year of funding, who are working with a primary mentor at UCSF or UC Irvine. Please see the award, mentor, and application requirements at this link. Applications are open and occur on a rolling basis.
