The Ohio State University Physician-Scientist Retention in Research Support
What is the goal? The goal of this opportunity is to provide timely and impactful support to promising early career physician-scientists who are at risk for or are experiencing an interruption in their research engagement and productivity due to an unexpected and significant increase in family caregiving responsibilities (especially those precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic).
Who is eligible? Eligible candidates include early career physician scientists (full time Assistant Professor or Associate Professor if ≤ 12 months, with MD, DO or foreign equivalent medical degree) with clinical responsibilities at OSUWMC and who have internally and/or externally funded research and ≥40% protected time for research effort.
Research Support: The research support provided will be tailored to individual needs. The type of research support could include short-term “extra hands” clinical research support, research core services (biostatistics, bioinformatics, clinical trials management etc.), research project management training/support, manuscript/grant editing support, academic coaching services, targeted research education, training, mentorship and guidance and/or financial support to increase faculty protected time for research. Overall financial support provided is estimated to range from $30K-50K. Research center/departmental/divisional “matching” financial support to increase faculty research protected time and/or to enhance research activities for one year is strongly encouraged.
