UK-CARES is now accepting applications from full-time early-stage investigators (ESI) at the University of Kentucky (UK) for the Career Development Program.
Career Development Awards are limited to full-time faculty at the rank of Assistant Professor (all title series are eligible including regular, research, clinical and special) at UK, and is intended to support early-career investigators as they build their capacity to design and implement innovative, studies in environmental health sciences that will lead to NIEHS pilot and extramural funding. Post-doctoral trainees are not eligible for this award.
The Career Development Awards [up to $60,000 in total direct costs, plus 50.5% for Facilities and Administrative Costs (F&A) for up to 20 months] will be made on a competitive basis to support activities designed to grow the faculty member’s EHS program of research. It is anticipated that funds will be available for 1-2 awards depending on the number of meritorious applications and needs of the specific project.
