The CTSA Program diversity and re-entry research supplements opportunities promote diversity in health-related research and re-entry into biomedical and behavioral research careers. The goal is to build the clinical and translational research workforce that is prepared to improve the quality, safety, efficiency and speed of clinical and translational science research nationally.
Diversity supplements provide salary, fringe benefits, travel and limited supplies to improve the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting students, postdoctorates and eligible investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research.
Re-entry supplements provide salary, fringe benefits, travel and limited supplies to support individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after an interruption for family responsibilities or other qualifying circumstances.
The award budget is up to $100,000/year for salary, plus fringe benefits and up to $150,000 direct costs after including funds for travel and limited supplies.
If interested in applying, please contact Bianca Freda at [email protected]. Applications must be coordinated with and submitted by the NJ ACTS CTSA program hub at Rutgers University.
