YCCI Post-doctoral RFA to promote diversity in Clinical and Translational Research

We are pleased to announce a request for applications for the YCCI Multidisciplinary Post-Doctoral Training Program in Translational Research, which will provide support to a select number of postdoctoral trainees who are strongly committed to careers in translational research. Translational research includes basic science studies that are related to human disease, including studies that utilize animal models or in vitro studies such as cell culture, as well as clinical research, community-based research and dissemination and implementation research. The goal of the RFA is to support a representative and diverse group of outstanding trainees who specifically want to pursue careers in any type of clinical and translational research; to train them in the use of state-of-the-art research tools; to enhance their abilities to work collaboratively in complex multidisciplinary research teams; to provide outstanding mentoring (including concordant mentoring) by experienced and diverse faculty that support the trainee’s long-term professional development. Awards will be for one year with a potential to request a second year of support. Applicants who are considered underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
