Career Development Program (KL2)

CCTS Career Development Program

The OSU CCTS KL2 Program supports the career development of investigators who have made a commitment to conduct either patient-oriented or translational research.

The CCTS supports seven scholars in clinical and translational science. Support is available for up to two years.

Eligibility criteria for applicants are as follows:

  • Must possess a doctoral level degree (e.g., PhD, DDS, DVM, OD, MD, DO, or PharmD)
  • Must not have received prior federal career development awards such as K series awards or the equivalent or independent (i.e., non-mentored) federal funding (as Principal Investigator) such as an R award. A prior T32 or F32 appointment is acceptable.
  • Preference will be given to junior faculty members with fewer than three years since their appointment, but advanced postdoctoral trainees, research scientists, and clinical fellows with a research track record are eligible to apply.
  • Must hold a full-time, permanent position at The Ohio State University.
  • Must be U.S. citizens, noncitizen nationals, or permanent residents of the United States.

KL2 Scholars will receive:

  • 75% salary support up to a maximum of $75,000 per year;
  • Research expense support up to $25,000 per year;
  • Access to the CCTS professional services and staff including assistance in the areas of biostatistics, subject recruitment, and human subjects research;
  • Access to a training curriculum in clinical and translational research methodology and specialized training seminars;
  • Individualized career development and mentorship from the trainee’s own appointed scientific committee.

KL2 scholars will be selected based on a competitive application process in which academic qualifications, career goals, the transdisciplinary/translational science of the mentorship team and research project, and the quality of the training environment will be considerations for funding. Applicants must identify a mentor team and must develop a proposed research plan in consultation with that mentor team to be submitted with the application.

Scholars will be required to commit a minimum of 75% full-time professional effort (50% for surgeons) to the conduct of clinical and/or translational research and the relevant career development activities.
