NIH T32 Programs Available to Doctoral Students and Postdoctoral Researchers

IN THE HERBERT WERTHEIM SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND HUMAN LONGEVITY SCIENCE

 NIH T32 training programs provide predoctoral and postdoctoral research training in specified areas that will have a significant impact on health-related research needs of the Nation.

There are three T32 fellowship opportunities available to predoctoral students and postdoctoral researchers in the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science.  

Improving the Health of Aging Women and Men

This fellowship program is designed to train predoctoral and postdoctoral public health scientists devoted to improving the health of aging women and men and understanding sex differences. The program focuses on preparing researchers to conduct translational studies of factors affecting aging through the life course from middle age to end of life. Emphasis is placed on special concerns of aging women due to the unique challenges they face across the life course.

The commitments are 2 years for post-doctoral fellows. Position is open starting in May 2022. One post-doctoral position is open to applicants nationwide. Applicants must be United States citizens or permanent residents. Fellows receive a stipend commensurate with their level of training and other benefits. UC San Diego is committed to increasing representation of underrepresented persons (https://diversity.nih.gov/about-us/population-underrepresented) in its fellowship programs.

Advanced Data Analytics for Behavioral and Social Sciences Research

This research intensive interdisciplinary training program is for psychology and public health PhD students interested in gaining advanced training in data science and analytics within their PhD programs of study.  The program is led by the UC San Diego Health Department of Biomedical Informatics, Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI), Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science,  Department of Psychiatry, and the San Diego State University (SDSU) School of Public Health and Psychology Department. It is one of eight sites across the United States that received funding from National Institutes of Health, led by the Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research, for T32 Predoctoral Training Programs on Advanced Data Analytics for Behavioral and Social Sciences (TADA-BSSR).

The national focus of this 5-year training program, started in July 2020, is to incorporate computational and data science analytic approaches directly into behavioral and social sciences predoctoral degree programs. The T32 program will support the development of a cohort of specialized scholars pursuing careers in health-related research with competencies in data science analytics. This funding opportunity was designed to address key methodology innovation and training priorities in the OBSSR Strategic Plan 2017-2021.
