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. Scholars work with a preceptor to design and implement studies on treatment of substance use disorders, 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:

  1. Substance use disorders including cannabis, tobacco, alcohol, and opioids
  2. Innovative methodology, including internet-based studies
  3. Treatment of complex patients in health care settings
  4. Diagnostic techniques and research on treatment tailored for HIV-positive substance users and those with psychiatric and medical disorders
  5. Research on provision of health services to substance-using populations
  6. 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.
