The K12 Career Development Program at the Medical University of South Carolina 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 clinical research relevant to substance use and addiction. The K12 Career Development Program at MUSC is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

Scholars will be selected for a career development award to begin as soon as May 2023. Applicants must be on faculty or eligible to join the faculty by the time of award. Scholars will receive 2 years of salary support commensurate with 75% effort per year (see Salary & Time Commitment under “Eligibility”) to pursue clinical research.

The program includes a supportive environment, start-up research funds, and access to core faculty who provide expertise and guidance in research design, measurement techniques, study coordination, data management, biostatistical analysis, research dissemination, and grant writing. Applicants should develop a training and research plan in consultation with an eligible mentor (faculty with NIDA research funding and expertise in substance use and addiction) and apply according to the instructions outlined below.
