OHSU is recruiting faculty members interested in a 3-year training program in Emergency Medicine research (Emergency Medicine K12 Training Grant). Scholars will meet the standards for appointment at the assistant professor level or higher. Although their research interests must focus on Emergency Medicine, scholars may come from a variety of clinical backgrounds, including Emergency Medicine, Cardiology, Pulmonary/Critical Care, Hematology, Trauma Surgery, and Pediatrics, as well as Nursing and Pharmacy.
Scholars will have 75% protected time for 3 years to develop their research careers. Training will include a didactic program leading to a Masters of Clinical Research; a mentored research experience including designing and conducting research studies, preparing manuscripts, and grant-writing; and professional development experiences tailored to the needs of each scholar. Scholars will draw on a mentorship team including over 35 seasoned researchers from 21 departments, divisions, institutes, centers and schools within OHSU – allowing research foci from bench to bedside to community, in a broad range of content areas.
The first two scholars will begin in July 2012, with additional scholars beginning in 2013 and 2014. Early inquiries are strongly encouraged. For additional information, contact Robert A. Lowe, MD, MPH.
