In 2013, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) announced the establishment of the K12 Career Development Program in Drug Abuse and Addiction. The K12 Career Development Program at MUSC supports the research career development of junior faculty members who have recently completed clinical training or postdoctoral fellowships, and who have mentorship and a solid plan for training in clinical research relevant to drug abuse and addiction. This is a K12 career development program funded by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA).
MUSC's NIDA K12 Program provides intensive mentored research experiences designed to prepare outstanding junior faculty to become independent investigators in drug abuse and addiction research.
As part of the program, scholars receive:
Eligibility: Junior faculty and senior fellows/post-doctoral trainees pending faculty appointment with a doctorate and less than 5 years of research training who are committed to a career in clinical research in drug abuse and addiction. Scholars are scientists with doctoral-level professional degrees who represent a broad range of disciplines, professions, specialties and sub-specialties, and who can develop into future leaders of clinical research. Examples include MD, PhD, DO, DDS, DMD, and PharmD. All candidates with clinical doctorates are expected to have completed the specific requirements leading to clinical certification.
To apply: Call for applications is in November. Applications due the following March. See website for exact dates.
