The Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (CICATS) announces a call for nomination/application for a third co-Director to work with Julie Robison, PhD and Lisa Barry, PhD, MPH.  Created in 2013, the CICATS Pre-K Career Development Award Program is a 2-year interactive program designed to equip junior faculty with the knowledge and competencies to effectively apply for an NIH Research Career Development Awards (K award) as well as become leaders in clinical and translational science. The position involves co-leading 1.5-hour sessions focused on K Award development and career development, modifying/updating and implementing the curriculum (as necessary), and providing coaching/guidance/grant review to junior faculty who are selected for the Program based on their potential to receive K awards.  The next Scholar Award cycle dates are: July, 2018-June, 2020.

Ten percent (.10 FTE) of the new co-Director’s effort will be supported by CICATS, July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. Continuation of this appointment is contingent upon satisfactory performance, availability of funding, and/or programmatic direction.

Applications are now closed.
