The Research Additional Mentoring Program (RAMP) award will provide early-career faculty the opportunity to undertake up to three years of support (up to 20% FTE per year) for their research training and mentoring. This dedicated time will be used for career development with a focus on the initiation and conduct of prospective clinical and translational investigations. Clinical investigations may be observational or interventional and should provide a strong basis for research mentoring and career development toward future funded research. Importantly, the RAMP award does not fund the research project itself; strong candidates will apply with funding for a research project that will provide the framework for this mentoring and training program.

Indirect costs are not allowed.

U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents (must have obtained permanent residency prior to the time of application), and Canadian citizens are welcome to apply.
