This is a two-year fellowship, with the first year spent in the United States, Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan Medical School, Addiction Center, and the second year is spent in research activity in the Ukraine. The program is designed for early-career post-doctoral Ukrainian fellows, with the goal of strengthening knowledge of research methodology through work on research projects with mentors in areas of common interest. Home-country research projects are developed while fellows are in the U.S. This program also offers intermediate-term fellowships at UM for mid-career substance abuse researchers.
Supervision and Mentorship
The UM-NIH program, under the direction of Dr. Robert Zucker and Dr. Maureen Walton, joins together faculty from 16 disciplines at the University of Michigan and from two institutions the Ukrainian Scientific Research Institute of Social, Forensic Psychiatry and Narcology (USRISFPN) and the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (NUKMA) both located in Ukraine’s capital city Kyiv. This fellowship involves working under the guidance of a mentor on current substance abuse research being carried out at the Addiction Center. It also involves specific activity to improve your methodological skills, by taking formal courses on statistical analysis and research design, attending lectures and workshops at the university, and also attending at least one national scientific meeting on substance abuse research.
