Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

Training in Research in Integrative Medicine (TRIM) program

The TRIM postdoctoral program is a two- or three-year fellowship that prepares participants for an academic, research-oriented career. The fellowship includes required seminars and formal course work, individualized mentoring, research and creative activity, elective seminars, and classes.Postdoctoral fellows’ time is primarily devoted to conducting research, typically for a project that they have initiated themselves. 

The fellowship provides an annual stipend, plus funds for tuition for related course work. For general information about being a postdoctoral fellow at UCSF, please visit the UCSF Office for Postdoctoral Scholars website.

TRIM postdoctoral fellowships are open to individuals with doctoral degrees (e.g., MD, DO, PhD, DOM/DAOM/DACM, DC, ND, DrPH, PharmD). Successful applicants typically have both prior experience performing research and an initial record of peer reviewed publications. 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 U.S. residence. A temporary or student visa is not acceptable for this grant. At this time, we are unable to consider applications from any individuals who do not meet the eligibility criteria outlined above.

The UCSF Osher Center is committed to reflecting this diversity in our faculty, students and other academic personnel.
