Postdoctoral Fellowship Application

The program is designed to provide an extension of research training for those who have obtained a PhD in Psychology. However, we will consider applicants with other doctoral degrees or with professional degrees (e.g., MDs) if they can establish their mastery of psychological theory and methods needed to undertake postdoctoral research training. In order to qualify for this federally funded grant, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen, a non-citizen national or a foreign national possessing a visa permitting permanent residence in the U.S.; having a temporary or student visa is not acceptable under this grant. However, we would be happy to consider applications of non-citizens if applicants are able to find funding individually through their own government or other sources.

Applicants should send a letter describing (1) their background, (2) area of interest, and (3) what they would like to accomplish in their postdoctoral training, including what research they would like to do. If not already sent, a current curriculum vitae should be included. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent, by postal service or FedEx, directly to us. All correspondence should be addressed to: Dr. Nancy Adler c/o Russell Heiman University of California, San Francisco Health Psychology Program 3333 California Street, Suite 465 San Francisco, CA 94143-0848 Zip code for FedEx: (94118) Tel: 415-476-7285 Fax: 415-476-7744 Email: HealthPsychology@ucsf.edu
