The CTSC is pleased to announce a call for Post-doctoral applicants to receive research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) sponsored T32 Post-doctoral Clinical Research Training Program (CTSC-T32). The CTSC-T32 program is part of a fully integrated approach by the UC Davis CTSC to advance research education and training for multidisciplinary, clinical and translational investigators working to improve human health. The overall goal of the T32 program is to provide post-doctoral scholars with skills required to develop a career in multidisciplinary clinical and translational research relevant to human health. The CTSC-T32 training program is expected to strongly advantage scholars in preparing for successful careers in translational research.
Post-doctoral scholars pursuing health related research at UC Davis are eligible to apply. Scholars will be selected based on a competitive application process in which student academic qualifications, career goals, and the quality of the training environment will be important considerations for funding.
Applicants must work with a UC Davis faculty mentor and develop a proposed research plan in consultation with that mentor to be submitted with the application. Award recipients are required to make a two year (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2018) commitment to all components of the training program; which includes the proposed research, didactic instruction and exposure to clinical care. Scholars may earn a master’s in clinical research, if they choose, during the training.
Awardees will receive a stipend, funds for research and travel expenses. For those pursuing the MAS in Clinical Research, full tuition will be covered. Please be advised that the research budget must be administered under the current NIH directive with respect to clinical trial research and can only be used to offset research costs that do not directly support clinical trials. For example, T32 funds may not be used to pay subjects or purchase medications. In addition, all funds must be managed by UC Davis, and not by off-site entities. As always, direct billing for services is permitted. All budgetary items should be reviewed and approved prior to initiating studies.
PLEASE NOTE: All funding is contingent upon final NIH Notice of Award for the CTSC grant.
