The Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science (IIMS) at the UT Health Science Center is soliciting applications for the Mentored Research Career Development (KL2) Program

Due to the success of a current KL2 scholar, the IIMS will have a new two-year KL2 Scholar position available starting September 1, 2015. Applications for this NIH funded position are due Monday, July 6.

The KL2 program targets early career faculty who have a professional doctoral degree or individuals who are completing postdoctoral training with an impending academic appointment. Qualified candidates will hold a doctoral health professional degree, Ph.D. or equivalent degree, and have keen interest in careers that focus on clinical and/or translational research. 

Applicants are sought from all UT Systems Schools in San Antonio – UT Health Science Center, University of Texas at San Antonio, University of Texas College of Pharmacy (San Antonio campus), and University of Texas School of Public Health.

KL2 Scholars are selected on a competitive basis and will embark on a two-year program of intensive training in clinical and/or translational science research, combining an innovative educational program with mentored clinical/translational science research. 

Thus, early career faculty from diverse groups including physicians, epidemiologists, behavioral scientists, biostatisticians, pharmacologists, dentists, nurses, psychologists, engineers, and others are sought for a two-year training program in mentored research.

A minimum of 75 percent effort is required for each year of participation. Successful candidates will receive up to $100,000/year salary as well as limited research and travel support. 

Completion of the program will uniquely position each KL2 Scholar for a leadership role as an independent clinical/ translational science investigator in academic medicine, industry, or government.

All application materials and information documents are available online at
