We are hiring!

We are a hiring a research psychiatrist and postdoctoral research scholar to join our team and work on multiple pharmacological trials. Please see below for more details about each opportunity.

Research Psychiatrist:
This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to further develop a research career as a member of an active research group. The position is a 75% psychiatrist position at the SFVA. This effort is protected for research activities. We have two years of funding and the possibility of extension. With substantial philanthropic support, we are now developing several studies combining novel psychopharmacological interventions with psychotherapy to target difficult to treat psychiatric conditions including depression in bipolar affective disorder, existential distress in neurodegenerative disorders, and demoralization in chronic pain disorders. In support of this goal, we are looking to recruit an exceptional faculty member with a strong record and potential for conducting outstanding relevant clinical and translational research. Start dates are variable and this position will be filled in a rank and series commensurate with experience. Initially, work will be remote. Once in-person clinical research activities at UCSF and the SFVA resume, this position will require on-site work.

Qualifications and Job Description:
MD, or MD/PhD.
Help build and support an actively-funded clinical and translational research program.
Collaborate effectively to promote clinical and translational research.
