The ITHS KL2 Career Development Program provides funding, mentoring, and training to prepare early career investigators in the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho (WWAMI) region for independent research careers.
Early career faculty and postdoctoral investigators may be eligible to apply for unique career development funding linked to the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) grant awarded to ITHS by NIH. In addition to our standard cohort, three NIH programs seek to support dedicated KL2 scholar appointments in the following research areas:
KL2 scholars have protected time for research and receive funding for salary and some research support for up to 3 years.
We invite eligible individuals to submit an expression of interest to apply for one of these opportunities. Priority will be given to those submitting an expression of interest by May 30. ITHS will provide extensive proposal development support to candidates selected to submit full supplement applications to NIH in Fall 2022. Full details are available in the EOI form: https://www.iths.org/call-for-eoi-2022/
Submit your expression of interest by May 30, 2022, 5 pm PDT.
