Dec. 13, 2012 College News - The Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI) announces the 2013 request for application (RFA) for a KL2 Translational Science Career Development Award for a junior faculty member interested in pursuing a clinical research career. The CTSI is accepting KL2 Translational Science Award applications from full-time junior faculty from the Medical College of Wisconsin to conduct mentored, interdisciplinary research.
Based on the recommendation of the KL2 review committee, one (1) KL2 applicant will receive salary support 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 (3) 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.
