The UCSF Division of Clinical Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics sponsors postdoctoral research fellowships. The principal goal is to provide an intensive experience in scientific investigation. PharmDs in early postdoctoral years (preferably after residency training) are eligible.
Fellows are expected to develop expertise in one or more of the following research areas: Principles or mechanisms of drug action/toxicity; Drug discovery & development (including post-marketing surveillance); Pharmacogenomics; Health Services Research (including studies of drug use & effects, pharmacoepidemiology, and optimizing drug use). Fellows will gain specific research skills including design of clinical trials, statistical analysis & research criticism skills, scientific writing, and familiarity with activities of IRB for human research.
