Clinical Research Informatics Postdoctoral (CRISP) Fellowship accepting applications

The UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics is offering a 1-2 year postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Research Informatics (CRISP) and welcomes candidates from the UCSF School of Pharmacy to apply by April 3.

Clinical Research Informatics, one of the five informatics specialties defined by the American Medical Informatics Society, involves using data science methods, analytics, and clinical practice observation to generate and disseminate knowledge related to health and healthcare delivery.

CRISP fellows obtain advanced didactic training in the methods of clinical research informatics and participate in regular work-in-progress and career development sessions. Fellows receive a stipend commensurate with their PGY/postdoctoral fellow status plus tuition assistance for didactic training. Applicant departments are responsible for covering approximately 25% of the total fellowship costs.

The CRISP program will be most effective for current postdoctoral fellows who have identified a project associated with an area of healthcare needing improvement. However, residents and faculty are welcome to apply. All applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Doctoral degree in a healthcare profession
  • Clinical license in a healthcare profession (allopathic or osteopathic medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, psychology, physical therapy, acupuncture, podiatry)
  • Fewer than three years of prior funding through (institutional or individual) NRSA training grants

More information, including application instructions, can be found on the CRISP webpage.
