REACH is offering two mentoring services:
A Professional Development Consultation to help junior faculty in crafting a professional development plan to reach long-term career goals as well as detail the immediate next steps;
Grant Reviews aimed at providing investigators with knowledgeable and timely feedback prior to submitting proposals for extramural funding.
Professional Development Consultation
The Professional Development Consultation service will be provided to faculty who wish to work with senior faculty to develop a comprehensive individual career development plan. A Professional Development Consultation involves completion of a detailed application, followed by a one-to-one meeting with a senior researcher. The focus of each consultation may vary, but might include:
Discussing your overall career options and planning strategies
Developing a career development/training activities plan for inclusion in a K award grant application
Obtaining practical advice on preparing both short and long-term career plans
Identifying senior and peer mentors
All tenure track Assistant Professors with clinical and translational research interests are eligible for this service. Non-tenure track faculty or clinical and postdoctoral fellows with clinical and translational research interests are also eligible to apply with the written support of their Department Head.
Application and Consultation Procedures
Applicants will be matched with a consultant and a consultation meeting will be scheduled.
The structured Grant Review service will be provided by members of the Mentor Academy and other senior faculty at UIC or other institutions with relevant expertise. The goal of this service is to improve grant preparation skills and overall success rates in applications for extramural support of clinical and translational research.
Full-time faculty with clinical and translational research interests who will be the PI on the grant to be reviewed are eligible for this service.
Application and Review Procedures
The grant application will be matched with a senior reviewer with relevant expertise.
Reviewers will complete a written report of their recommendations, and a review meeting will be scheduled at least two weeks (14 days) prior to the OVCR grant submission deadline.
