Request for applications - 2014 KL2 Mentored Career Development Awards
Oct. 07, 2013 College News - The Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI) is accepting applications for the 2014 KL2 Translational Science Career Development Awards for junior faculty interested in pursuing a clinical research career. Applications will be accepted until Feb. 1, 2014.
Full-time junior faculty from CTSI partnering institutions are eligible to apply (Froedtert Hospital, Zablocki VA Medical Center, BloodCenter of Wisconsin, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Medical College of Wisconsin, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Marquette University) to conduct mentored, interdisciplinary research. Based on the recommendation of the KL2 review committee, 4-5 KL2 applicants will receive salary support for up to 75% protected time ($140,000 maximum--this includes salary and fringe benefits) and up to $25,000 in research support per year for up to three years of supervised career development activities and mentored clinical and translational research.
Applicants must justify the need for a period of mentored research experience and provide a convincing case that the proposed period of support and career development plan will substantially enhance their careers as independent investigators in clinical and translational research. Departments may be asked to leverage funds for their selected faculty member.
Please encourage qualified candidates to apply by Jan. 31, 2014. If accepted, the award would begin on April 1, 2014.
