Biobehavioral Research Training For Ending The HIV/AIDS Epidemic

T32 Postdoctoral Training Program in Biobehavioral Research Training for Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic

The Division of Infectious Diseases of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is pleased to offer its Postdoctoral Training Program in Biobehavioral Research Training for Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic as a way to prepare physician and social/behavioral scientists for academic research careers focused on integrated biomedical-biobehavioral approaches to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

The program is funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) through a T32 mechanism, and supports 2 new fellows each year–one a physician who completed the formal clinical infectious diseases fellowship in the Division of Infectious Diseases at UCLA, and one a social/behavioral scientist or a graduate with a doctoral degree from a relevant professional field (such as psychology, public health, public policy, sociology, anthropology, biological sciences, etc.), as long as the applicant is focused on an academic career in global HIV research.

The fellowship lasts up to 3 years. A successful graduate of the training program will have produced publications/abstracts, obtained career development funding (NIH K award or equivalent), and developed the tools to transition to an independent career as a physician-scientist. Original research is the heart of the fellowship, and our efforts are focused on ensuring that fellows successfully become independently funded investigators.

Trainees will participate in ongoing seminars, peer review, and relevant conferences. Professional development will focus on grant preparation, data analysis, manuscript preparation, presentation and teaching skills, and grant writing.
