Our next application deadline is April 1, 2024.
The goal of the ICTR TL1 Postdoctoral Program is to recruit and train individuals of diverse backgrounds and research interests in translational science. The program will support mentored training of U.S. citizens or permanent residents with professional doctoral degrees, providing salary and training support at the NIH rate. Training will focus on preparation for academic or leadership careers, supporting individualized research specialization, along with academic skills in leadership and team science, writing, responsible conduct of research, and rigor and reproducibility.
Funding is typically provided for two years, with an option of a third year of funding under extenuating circumstances. Successful applicants will have already identified a UW mentor, will have funding to complete the proposed research, and will have a letter of support from a department chair, indicating their potential to enter a faculty position when the fellowship is finished. It is anticipate the postdoctoral fellow will be supported by independent training grants, career development awards, or other types of extramural funding at the completion of the program.
We expect trainees to gain competency in both the fundamentals of research design & data science and in regulatory & research ethics through a variety of courses, workshops, and seminars. Additionally, the candidate will identify other domain-specific training appropriate for their career development program.
Eligibility is limited to applicants who are applying for or currently holding a postdoctoral position, academic staff, or non-tenure track faculty title series. In most cases, after completion of the TL1 Postdoctoral award, the trainee will be appointed to the faculty at UW Madison or elsewhere (tenure track or non-tenure track title series).
Submit applications by Oct. 1 or April 1 for appointment start dates of Jan. 1 and July 1, respectively. The next application deadline is April 1, 2024.
We require an email notifying us of your intent to apply at least one week in advance of the application deadline. Please email Lauren Hahn (email@example.com) for questions about the application process.
