Graduate Student Program
Graduate and medical students
from the San Francisco or Berkeley campuses of the University of
California can elect to do either a research rotation or their graduate
thesis in a Gallo Center laboratory. These students participate in
meetings, seminars, and retreats sponsored by UCSF, and are
individually mentored by the sponsoring principal investigator.
Postdoctoral fellows are selected by
the principal investigator in whose laboratory the candidate wishes to
train. The selection process involves a review of the candidate's
curriculum vitae, evaluations of the candidate's work and educational
references, a personal interview with the principal investigator, and
the presentation of a formal talk by the candidate, which is open to
all Gallo Center scientific staff and trainees.
Staff Research/Associate Investigator Program
Center’s Staff Research/Associate Investigator Program is designed to
encourage promising postdoctoral fellows to pursue their own
independent research, with the goal of transitioning to full
independence, either at the Gallo Center or elsewhere.
