Apply by March 24 for grant-writing workshop opportunity!
The University of Utah invites advanced postdoctoral fellows and faculty writing NIH K or R-type proposals to participate in a study about the impact of intensive mentoring on funding success. The study is funded by the NIH National Research Mentoring Network and all mentoring sessions will be conducted virtually starting in August.
Participants will meet bi-weekly for 5-6 months in groups of 4-5 with a faculty Coach who has been successful at obtaining research grants and has been trained in the group method. The study is a randomized trial comparing 4 different group process and duration designs. It is not a typical ‘controlled’ design, where some individuals receive no coaching, since the benefit of grant writing coaching groups has already been established. The deadline to apply for this final round is March, 24.
Participation in the study is open to faculty and advanced postdoctoral fellows who have not yet received NIH R01-level funding. Participants can be working on NIH K or R-type proposals, or equivalent for other agencies, and will be actively writing their proposals in the August-December, 2022, timeframe.
