Indiana Pediatric Scientist Award Program Child Health Research Career Development Scholarships

Mar. 7, 2013

Indiana Pediatric Scientist Award Program is seeking applicants for Child Health Research Career Development Scholarships.

The Child Health Research Career Development Award Program is a K12 Program grant supported by the National Institutes of Health that enhances the capacity of pediatric research institutions to provide junior faculty investigators with cutting-edge training in an academic research setting and to foster translational research by more rapidly applying basic science findings to clinical problems.

The goal of the Child Health Research Career Development program is promoting the performance of research and transfer of findings that will benefit the health of children. These grant awards will ultimately result in a well-qualified cadre of pediatrician scientists who will help strengthen the research capacity and meet the need for highly skilled physician investigators who can take advantage of new technologies and respond to the increasing demands of pediatric research.

Support for Scholars will be provided through a minimum of two consecutive 12-month appointments, renewable in annual increments, for up to five years total. Support of scholars is renewable at the discretion of the program director, Wade Clapp, M.D., Chair and Richard L. Schreiner Professor of Pediatrics, and contingent upon presentation of evidence of satisfactory progress as determined by the Advisory Committee.

The Scholar position is a faculty appointment, not a fellowship or extension of a fellowship position. Scholars may be appointed to the K12 program in the final research year of subspecialty fellowship training, if the fellowship provides basic science training similar to this K-12 program.

Applications are due Friday, March 29. Eligible applicants include pediatric physician-scientists at the junior faculty level. For more information, see the complete application guidelines.

Submit applications to Jamie L. Renbarger, M.D., at jarenbar@iupui.edu.
