UCLA HIV/AIDS, Substance Abuse and Trauma Training Program (HA-STTP)

The UCLA HIV/AIDS, Substance Abuse and Trauma Training Program (HA-STTP) is a collaboration of the Center for Culture, Trauma and Mental Health Disparities (CCTMHD), the UCLA AIDS Institute, the Center for HIV Identification, Prevention and Treatment Services (CHIPTS) and the Nathanson Family Resilience Center (NFRC).

The goal of HA-STTP is to provide multi-disciplinary, state-of-the-art research training in HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, traumatic stress, and health disparities to postdoctoral scholars including postdoctoral fellows, early career clinical researchers and early career faculty. Under the guidance of HA-STTP faculty and mentors, trainees will acquire a broad range of skills necessary to establish career independence. Trainees will be expected to complete an NIH grant application during the course of the program.

This five-year program will select scholars to train at UCLA. Personalized career mentoring, research mentoring, training, and pilot funding will be provided.

1) A doctoral degree or have completed their medical residency within the past 7 years;

Potential candidates must have the following:

2) Experience with HIV, substance abuse, trauma, health disparities, and/or bio- and socio-behavioral research;

3) Ability and commitment to attend two week-long training institutes per year (travel and housing are covered); and

4) Clear articulation of research goals and training needs. Applicants from historically black colleges and universities and other minority-serving institutions are encouraged to apply.
