Benefits include partial salary support, as well as tuition and fees for required and elective coursework, pilot research monies, and travel funds to attend the national CTSI young investigator meeting. Awards will begin July 1. 

These awards provide promising junior investigator faculty with the opportunity to be mentored in research-intensive multi-disciplinary settings toward the goal of developing careers in clinical-translational research. Clinical research includes epidemiological studies, clinical trials, or other investigations involving human subjects. Translational research consists of either "T1 research," which involves the interface of basic science to human studies, or "T2 research," which involves the interface of human studies to the community. 

To be eligible, candidates must fall into one of two categories: 

  • Clinician-scientists with a doctoral degree (physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, clinical psychologists, optometrists, veterinarians, allied health care professionals, etc.)
  • Basic scientists with a PhD, who are doing translational research, which has high potential for early translation into impacting patient care

 Applicants much be full-time junior faculty or research scientists who would be eligible to apply as principal investigator on an NIH grant or career development award, but who have not to date been a principal investigator on an R01 or equivalent grant. Applications must also be able to identify co-mentors who are faculty investigators from at least two different disciplines (preferably a clinician-scientist and a Ph.D.-scientist) and be planning to submit a grant for external funding (either a career development award or independent research grant) during the first 12 months of the award.  U.S. citizens or permanent residents is also required.

Postdoctoral clinical or research fellows are not eligible to apply unless their institution has arranged for them to have a full-time faculty or research scientist appointment by summer 2014.

Applications are due Tuesday, April 1. For more information, or to submit an application, visit the Indiana CTSI grants portal and enter your institutional username and password. Applications instructions are located under " CTSI Young Investigator Award in Clinical - Translational Research - 2014.04."
