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.
