BHHI Postdoctoral Scholars Program
The BHHI postdoctoral scholars training program educates the next generation of strategic scientists empowered to address upstream causes of homelessness. Our projects rely on diverse research methodologies including quantitative methods, qualitative methods, or mixed methods and utilize a diverse set of research designs including longitudinal, cross-sectional, quasi-experimental, natural experiments, implementation and translational science, and policy evaluation.
UCSF BHHI is seeking highly motivated scholars to join a multidisciplinary team for a 2-year postdoctoral program. This full-time position is suitable for graduating doctoral students looking to gain research experience and further career development in either an academic or applied setting. Scholars will work closely with BHHI faculty, including an assigned mentor from within BHHI, to conduct research related to homelessness and translate findings into evidence-based programs and policy solutions. Scholars are based at the UCSF Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital campus in San Francisco and have access to resources across the UCSF campuses.
