ACTSI KL2 Clinical Research Career Development Program for Jr. Faculty-RFA Due March 1, 2013
Junior faculty members at the MD or PhD level from a wide variety of disciplines at Emory, Morehouse School of Medicine or Georgia Tech who are committed to an academic career in clinical and/or translational research and who have excellent potential to become independent clinical investigators are encouraged to apply to the KL2 – Mentored Clinical and Translational Research Scholars (MCTRS) Program.
The KL2 award provides support for didactic and mentored research training for junior faculty members committed to a career in clinical investigation. KL2 award recipients must devote 75% professional effort to the program (surgeons may devote 50% effort). Applicants who are successfully funded will receive salary support (75%), a KL2 technical budget ($25,000 per year) for research costs and tuition and their lead mentor will receive up to $5,000 per year to help defray mentor-associated laboratory or other research-related expenses. Partial or matching salary support from the applicant’s Division, Department or other non-federal sources is highly encouraged but not required.
The KL2-MCTRS program is supported by the ACTSI, NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA).
