    Young Investigators Urged to Apply for USBJI Grant Mentoring Program – Deadline: July 15, 2011

    Date: June 12, 2011

    The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) Young Investigator Initiative is a grant mentoring program which provides early-career clinical and basic investigators an opportunity to work with experienced researchers and assist them in securing fundraising and other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career.

    This program is open to promising junior faculty, senior fellows or post-doctoral researchers nominated by their department or division chairs.  It is also open to senior fellows or residents that are doing research and have a faculty appointment in place or confirmed.  Basic and clinical investigators are invited to apply. 

    Investigators selected to take part in the program attend two workshops, 12-18 months apart, and work with faculty between workshops to develop their grant applications.  The unique aspect of this program is the opportunity for attendees to maintain a relationship with a mentor until their application is funded.

    The application deadline for the next cycle starting with the Fall 2011 Workshop is July 15, 2011
