University of California, San Francisco
Date Posted: April 28, 2022

The UCSF Department of Transplant Surgery is recruiting external post-doctoral applicants for our T32 training program titled: “Filling a Void of Research Training for Transplant Surgeons (FAVOR)”. We are seeking applicants for the 2023 – 2025 cycle. Application deadline for external candidates is November 15th, 2022. The UCSF T32 training grant (FAVOR), co-lead by Professor Peter Stock, MD, PhD and Professor Minnie Sarwal, MD, PhD, will provide two years of funding for surgery residents with a strong interest in academic and translational transplant surgery. The FAVOR T32 will focus on preparing surgical trainees for basic and translational research careers using outstanding mentors with strong track records of training, access to state-of-the-art tools to study varied mechanisms pertinent to solid organ transplant injury, tolerance, diagnostics, stem cell and novel drug therapies, and applications of surgical innovations at UCSF. The program leverages the world-class transplant surgery program at UCSF and a high volume tertiary referral center with excellent post-transplant outcomes and clinical training. Trainees will participate in didactic training in translational research to prepare them for careers as academic transplant surgeons. FAVOR trainees will devote ≥90% time effort to research for 2 years, guided by 2 mentors of their choice selected from Core Faculty Member list, with clinical mentor and the second, a scientific mentor (basic or translational). Candidates must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (in possession of a valid Alien Registration Receipt Card, or "green card") at the time of appointment. Candidates must hold a post-doc degree from an accredited domestic or foreign institution. Candidates must be currently appointed in an ACGME general surgery residency program. Trainees will be expected to commit full time to the research training. We encourage and welcome all qualified applications to the T32 training program and particularly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups in the sciences, including underrepresented minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
