Career development program accepting applications
MUSC’s Building Interdisciplinary Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) Career Development Program is accepting applications.
This program will support the research career development of junior
faculty members who have recently completed clinical training or
postdoctoral fellowships, and who have mentorship and a solid plan for
training in basic research, translational research, clinical research
and/or health services research relevant to women’s health in the areas
of mental health, addiction, aging or cognitive decline.
BIRCWH is a K12 career development program co-funded by the Office of
Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and the National Institute of Child
Health and Human Development (NIHCD), National Institutes of Health.
BIRCWH Scholars will be selected for a career development award to
begin July 1. Applicants must be on faculty or eligible to join the
faculty by this date. Scholars will receive two to three years of
salary support commensurate with 75-100 percent effort per year to
pursue multidisciplinary clinical and pre-clinical research. The
program includes a supportive environment, start-up research funds,
access to core faculty who provide expertise and guidance in research
design, measurement techniques, study coordination, data management,
biostatistical analysis, publishing and presenting research, grant
writing, and a training plan that the applicants in consultation with
their mentors must develop specific to their career goals.
Application deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 18.
