The ‘Yale-SCORE Program for Sex Differences in Alcohol Use Disorder’ is inviting applications for our Early Investigator Career Enhancement Program.
Notification of Awards:
Earliest Appointment Start: September 2021
Number of Openings:
Type of Research Supported: Basic or Clinical (spanning T1 to T4 translation)
One of the primary aims of the Yale-SCORE U54 grant is to mentor the next generation of biomedical and behavioral researchers focused on alcohol and women’s health spanning the T1 to T4 translational spectrum.
Each year we will support SCORE-Early Investigators (meeting the definition of NIH Early-Stage Investigator) for 1-2 years, with 50% of their time protected to engage in career enhancement activities. The other 50% effort may consist of research support or clinical effort depending on trainee interest and mentor funding.
Career enhancement activities include: 1) mentored research, leading to K or R award submissions, 2) access to pilot funds supporting research focused on sex/gender and alcohol, 3) a curriculum dedicated to education regarding sex/gender and alcohol, and 4) professional development and leadership skills necessary for an academic career. After acceptance, applicants will develop a training and research plan in consultation with their team of mentors.
Mentored research projects must focus on sex and gender differences as they uniquely relate to alcohol use. Research projects can span the T1 to T4 translational spectrum.
Early Investigators will be selected for a career development award to begin as early as September 2021 (start date flexible). Applicants must be on faculty or eligible to join the Yale faculty by their start date.
Yale University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Women, members of minority groups, persons with disabilities, and protected veterans are especially encouraged to apply.
