Clinical Research Scholar Career Development Opportunity - Deadline is 10/31!


The Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) KL2 training program emphasizes multidisciplinary clinical and translational research. Candidates are sought who would benefit from our program. Qualified candidates are being offered an opportunity to apply to an innovative career development program whose purpose is to train clinician investigators. The CTSC KL2 is designed to train the nation’s future leaders in clinical and translational research, and is part of the NIH Roadmap aimed at “re-engineering the clinical research enterprise.”

Qualified candidates

§ Hold an M.D., Ph.D., D.D.S., Pharm.D., Psy.D. or an equivalent degree

§ Have demonstrated a keen interest in clinical research

§ Need an appointment in one of the Departments in the University or medical centers

§ Are U.S. citizens or have permanent resident status

Applications are encouraged from physicians, nurses, dentists, social and behavioral scientists, engineers, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, bioethicists and other professionals with expertise relevant to clinical research.

Successful applicants will receive a comprehensive package including:

§ CWRU appointment

§ Salary and benefits commensurate with their qualifications supporting 75% effort (surgeons may commit 50%)

§ Research stipend

§ Tuition benefits for an innovative didactic program leading to a degree in clinical investigation (half of which will come from a Departmental cost-share)

§ Travel funds

§ Access to a multidisciplinary pool of highly accomplished mentors who will guide their research projects

The CTSC KL2 has just welcomed its ninth cohort of scholars and is now seeking applications for the tenth cohort. At this time, we expect to fill Clinical Research Scholar positions beginning the program in July 2014. Each scholar will embark on a 4 year program of intensive training in multidisciplinary team-based, patient-oriented clinical research, combining an innovative curriculum with mentored research experiences. The competitive applicant will be at an early career stage, e.g. senior postdoctoral fellow, instructor, or entry level faculty member, and will need to explain through the application the ways in which the program will lead to a successful career in clinical research.
