Is there a limit on time since completing post-doctoral training, or at what stage should prospective KL2 scholars be?

We have not established explicit limits on time since training. However, this award is best suited for applicants who are early in their professional careers. This award is not meant to serve as support for applicants already established in their field, nor is it meant to aid in a career change. Individuals who have achieved the rank of associate professor are not eligible.

KL2 scholars must hold a doctoral level degree. We are seeking individuals at an early stage of their career, even while they are in sub-specialty training. We expect that KL2 scholars will be postdoctoral level trainees or junior faculty who plan to conduct, or are conducting, clinical and translational research. Some KL2 scholars may be at the tenure-track/assistant professor level when they enter the program, but we hope most KL2 scholars will be at a much earlier stage. We expect that KL2 scholars will become assistant professor or tenure-track clinical research faculty either during or after they progress through the program.

KL2 scholars who achieve promotion to the rank of Associate Professor will have their appointments terminated at the end of the grant year in which this promotion is achieved.
