Targeted Research Training
Program Director: Michael N. Bates PhD
The Targeted Research Training Fellowships are intended to promote interdisciplinary research training in occupational health and safety. The application process is competitive, but trainees receive a contribution to their research costs, as well as a stipend for living expenses and in-state tuition and fees. They are expected to attend a monthly training seminar which alternates between sessions where they discuss their research progress and any problems experienced and sessions involving practical research training, of a type not usually received during academic classes. Before applying to the TRT, applicants should be accepted into their program by one of the other ERC Program Directors.
Students in the School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley (UCB), and Schools of Medicine and Nursing, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) may apply for these Research Fellowships.
