Nominations for UCSF Sandler Fellows:

A call for nominations is typically announced once per year. A candidate must be nominated by a mentor/advisor who is able to comment in some depth on the accomplishments and future potential of the candidate. We usually interview selected candidates in the Spring, and aim to appoint the next Fellow to start in the following year. We also encourage inquiries regarding future positions at any time.
