UW ICTR  is seeking an innovative, emotionally intelligent leader at the associate professor or professor level with a demonstrated track-record of successful interdisciplinary translational research and mentorship of trainees and junior faculty to co-lead the KL2 program with Dr. Marin Schweizer, current KL2 Co-Director.

The ICTR KL2 Program is a mentored career development program that provides competency-based, individualized training in clinical and translational research, while also creating a supportive and collaborative peer network.  It has supported over 70 early-stage assistant professors from across the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Marshfield Clinic who are developing careers as independent translational researchers.

They are also responsible for coaching KL2 scholars; selecting new KL2 scholars for CTSA support; introducing innovative training/educational approaches to enhance approaches for translational team science, leadership and adult education; and evaluating KL2 programming.

Interested faculty members are invited to self-nominate by submitting their CV and a cover letter to Allan Brasier, MD, Executive Director of ICTR and Senior Associate Dean for Clinical and Translational Research at abrasier@wisc.edu no later than June 20.
