Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC), CWRU, School of Medicine

Qualified candidates are being offered an opportunity to apply to an innovative career development program whose purpose is to train clinician investigators. The CTSC KL2 is designed to train the nation’s future leaders in clinical and translational research, and is part of the NIH Roadmap aimed at “re-engineering the clinical research enterprise.” Each scholar will embark on a 4 year program of intensive training in multidisciplinary team-based, patient-oriented clinical research, combining an innovative curriculum with mentored research experiences.

Applications are encouraged from physicians, nurses, dentists, social and behavioral scientists, engineers, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, bioethicists and other professionals with expertise relevant to clinical research.

The competitive applicant will be at an early career stage, e.g. senior postdoctoral fellow, instructor, or entry level faculty member, and will need to explain through the application how the program will enable a successful career in clinical research. CTSC is especially seeking qualified applicants from under represented populations.

Please visit the CTSC website for more information or for questions or assistance, please contact Beth Spyke, MPA at spykeb@ccf.org or 216-444-2702.
