The UW School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM), an ICTR partner school, is recruiting UW trainers for 2-year research fellowships designed to engage veterinary clinical specialists in inter-disciplinary research teams. Funded by a CTSA Innovation Award through The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) to the CTSA One Health Alliance (COHA), these fellowships will prepare residency-trained veterinary specialists to undertake research projects with high potential for translation to human disease.
COHA is a consortium of veterinary schools partnered with medical and other colleagues through the CTSA program. As a founding member, SVM and ICTR partners have taken the lead in designing and implementing the research career development and mentorship program at UW and nationwide.
SVM/COHA is recruiting descriptions of potential fellowship opportunities from mentors appropriate for research training of veterinary specialists. These fellowship opportunities should include a clear translational research program for a veterinary specialist, an interdisciplinary mentor team with a mix of backgrounds, active NIH or comparable federal funding for at least one mentor, and a clear mentorship and collaboration plan. A potential fellow should not be identified in the pre-submission.
Pre-submissions describing proposed fellowship opportunities should be submitted to Lauren Trepanier (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 1, 2020, for anticipated fellowship start dates in August 2021
