Cleveland Foundation Internal New Investigator Research Award (INIRA)
Deadline: 5/1/2014 (Prior to Midnight) - 52 Day(s) Left
One critical component of a successful career in academic medicine is the ability to obtain extramural research funding. In the current fiscal environment, obtaining peer-reviewed extramural funding is becoming increasingly difficult. To facilitate the research career development of new faculty investigators (at the Instructor and Assistant Professor level) in the Department of Oncology, we have created a fund from a generous gift from the Cleveland Foundation. This fund will cover salary and fringe benefits, as well as research costs, for junior faculty who need financial support while working to obtain extramural research support. Allocations from this fund are based on a competitive application process which is closely tied to efforts to obtain stable extramural research support. Thus, early career investigators who have submitted a research proposal to NIH, DOD, or the equivalent, but who have not yet obtained funding, are eligible to apply.
