UCLA Drug Abuse Research Center - Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships

Training Program in Addiction Health Services

The UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs (ISAP) offers training to predoctoral and postdoctoral PHD and MD fellows. The two-year research training program, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grant (T32 DAO7272-21), combines a core research methodology curriculum with hands-on training opportunities in a diverse group of research and clinical settings. Training is organized to address core issues and methodology within a health services research context.

The ISAP training program exposes trainees to a broad variety of drug abuse research studies and settings and allows trainees to select an area of focus for research that is supported by faculty mentoring. The program provides access to varied research environments; training in diverse research methods, both qualitative and quantitative; strong training in statistical applications, including longitudinal modeling; and access to leading researchers in substance abuse treatment and related areas at UCLA and the surrounding Los Angeles community. The training program funds fellowships for two predoctoral and three postdoctoral trainees each year.

Eligible candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Postdoctoral trainees must have an MD or PhD at the time of admission; predoctoral trainees must be a current graduate student at UCLA working in public health, social welfare, psychology, anthropology, sociology, criminology, or a related field. Stipend levels are commensurate with National Institutes of Health NRSA awards. In addition, all trainees receive funds for travel and research project supplies; postdocs also receive health benefits and predocs receive partial support for tuition.

To apply, send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and two letters of reference. Graduate students, in addition to the above, please send a copy of your transcripts. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled.

Executive Committee: Christen E. Grella (Director), David Farabee, Yih-Ing Hser, Debra A. Murphy.
