Research Training Program
University of California, San Francisco
The University of California, San Francisco is accepting applications to its NIDA-funded two-year postdoctoral research training program. Our program is one of the few that trains scientists in treatment and services research. Scholars work with a preceptor to design and implement studies on treatment of substance use disorders (SUD), including nicotine, cannabis, alcohol, opioids, and other substances. Scholars also select a specific area of focus for independent research. Current research interests of faculty include trials of efficacy and effectiveness of psychosocial and pharmacologic SUD treatment, including:
- Substance use disorders including cannabis, tobacco, alcohol, and opioids
- Innovative methodology, including internet-based studies
- Treatment of complex patients in health care settings
- Diagnostic techniques and research on treatment tailored for HIV-positive substance users and those with psychiatric and medical disorders
- Research on provision of health services to substance-using populations
- Instrument development in substance use treatment
A variety of university-affiliated and community substance use treatment programs are available as research sites. These include inpatient- and outpatient-setting programs that treat dependence on stimulants, cannabis, nicotine, alcohol, and opiates. Our training program encourages close research involvement with a preceptor, and involvement in selected classes, seminars, and grant preparation. For further information, please contact either Derek Satre, PhD, at Derek.Satre@ucsf.edu or Janice Tsoh, PhD, at Janice.Tsoh@ucsf.edu.
