CTSA TL1 Physician Research Fellowship [Duke Internal Funding]
The Duke CTSA TL1 physician fellowship is a new 2-year training program aiming to provide 2 years of funded time to support the research training of physician-scientists. All eligible physician trainees may apply, but we have particular interest in applicants who are interested in broadening their previous training to include a new category of research methodology (e.g., applicants with a bench science background looking to gain training in translational or clinical research, or vice versa). We also have particular interest in applicants looking to obtain training in data science methodology. The Duke CTSA TL1 will typically be for two years, will provide tailored professional development support, an NIH-scale postgraduate stipend, as well as federally-designated training-related expenses.
Applications are due February 15, 2019. Up to 2 fellowships will be awarded for a targeted July 1 start date.
Eligible applicants will be US citizens or resident aliens with an MD or MD/PhD and no more than 2 prior years on a federal postdoctoral training grant. Applicants must be board eligible in their specialty (but not necessarily their subspecialty). Applicants must be prepared to spend at least 40 hours a week engaged in research activities for the full length of the training period, and may perform no more than 25% non-research activities (e.g., clinical care).
