Training Opportunity for Underrepresented Early-Career Addictions Researchers




We are happy to announce that the Learning for Early Careers in Addiction and Diversity (LEAD) Program is recruiting its new cohort!

The LEAD Program is an NIH-sponsored R25 training program that uses the NIDA CTN as a platform for providing research training to early-career investigators from underrepresented racial/ethnic minority groups conducting research in the substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and services field. This 2-year training program is based at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Program scholars will spend 4 weeks at UCSF each summer and will develop and execute a pilot study at their home institution throughout the academic year. The program provides travel and housing funds as well as up to $25,000 to conduct the pilot study, which will serve as foundational data to support the submission of an R or K application. The program is directed by Carmen Masson, PhD, and James Sorensen, PhD, at UCSF.


The program recruitment flyer containing further information on eligibility criteria and selection process is attached. The deadline for applications is now February 28th, 2017. For any questions or to nominate a qualified candidate, please contact Rebecca Cook at rebecca.cook@ucsf.edu. Additional information can be found at http://psych.ucsf.edu/lead/.
