Applications are no longer being accepted for the current year.

The program is directed by Dr. Linda C. Giudice, Chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at UCSF. Candidates must meet the eligibility requirements described described in the Eligibility section and be eligible to be appointed at the early Assistant Professor level at UCSF.

Scholars must be planning a career in reproductive health research focused on issues in women’s health and commit 75% of professional effort to the program.

Per NIH policy: When a Scholar is appointed, generally, the expectation is that salary and benefit support for the remaining 25% effort will be from non-federal sources. This will likely be reviewed on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the NIH.
