Call for Applications - PRIDE Mentoring Program

This message is sent on behalf of Dr. Melissa Begg, Professor & Vice Dean for Education, Mailman School of Public Health, and Co-Director, Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.

FUNDED SHORT TERM TRAINING OPPORTUNITY FROM THE MAILMAN SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH, THE IRVING INSTITUTE AND THE COLUMBIA SUMMER RESEARCH INSTITUTE (CSRI)

The PRIDE program (funded by NHLBI) seeks to recruit and train junior scientists who can improve public health and reduce health disparities throughout the nation. Recognizing the urgent and compelling need to promote diversity, the PRIDE award will provide rigorous training and mentoring opportunities to junior faculty members from diverse backgrounds, and equip them with the essential skills needed to conduct comparative effectiveness research and address some of the most complex health problems facing us today.


The key elements of this program include:
  • Introduction to landmark research topics in heart, lung, blood, and sleep research
  • Rigorous training in CER methods and responsible conduct of research
  • An ongoing, structured mentorship experience
  • Opportunities for interactions with existing programs at Columbia for mutual support
Components of this 14-month program include: didactic training through the Columbia Summer Research Institute (CSRI), mentoring and professional development, grant writing support, and CER seminars.

Eligibility: We are currently seeking applications from individuals with race/ethnic backgrounds that are under-represented in biomedical research; those from disadvantaged backgrounds; or individuals with disabilities that substantially limit one or more major life activities. Furthermore, applicants must be junior faculty members, holding instructor level or higher positions at any institution and health-related doctoral degrees such as the PhD, MD, DO, DrPH, DDS, DMD, DVM, or equivalent, as well as doctorally-prepared nurses. Applicants from Columbia University with the title of Assistant of Clinical, Associate Research Scientist or Assistant Professor as of July 1, 2013 are eligible to apply. This award is open to US Citizens or Permanent Residents. Individuals ineligible for PRIDE include those with post-doctoral titles on July 1, 2013, and current and former principal investigators on NIH research grants (R01), subprojects or program project (P01) or center grants (P50).

We are NOW accepting applications from junior faculty for funding to begin July 1, 2013. Interested candidates should complete a pre-application by clicking here.
