CTSA TL1 Physician Research Fellowship [Duke Internal Funding]

Funding Agency:
Duke University

The Duke CTSA TL1 physician fellowship is a 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 January 19, 2021.
