The goal of the CTSC TL1 Training Award is to support early career development among pre/post-doctoral trainees by providing advanced degree training and practical skills necessary to conduct interdisciplinary Clinical and Translational (C/T) Investigation in a team research environment. Trainees are appointed for up to two years and receive:
- Stipend coverage at the NIH approved rate:
- Up to $27,676 for pre-docs
- Up to $64,122 for post-docs
- Funding for supplies and research support including educational expenses
- Funding for travel to present at national conferences and symposia
- Access to resources for conducting C/T research, multi-level mentoring support, and career development
TL1 Trainees must pursue research training on a full-time basis, normally defined as 40 hours per week (100% time and effort). Appointments are normally made for 12 months, and no less than 9 months.
Individuals from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
