The Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences (NUCATS) Institute is pleased to announce a Call for Applications for the Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child and Adolescent Health (TL1). This novel training program seeks to promote interactions between pediatric mentors and trainees and other scientific disciplines, such as engineering and basic science, who desire to apply their discipline to a project in child and adolescent health. These areas include: bioengineering, informatics, population science, human services research, materials science, operations research, imaging, signal processing and analysis, gaming theory, and communication disorders.

Funding for this two-year fellowship is to begin on March 1st. The letter of intent is due November 10th and full applications are due December 1st. For additional details regarding the provisions of the award, eligibility criteria, and submission information, please visit the fellowship webpage.

The TL1 program strives for diversity of scientific discipline as well as a community of fellows and mentors from different backgrounds and perspectives to engage in a mutual exchange of ideas and experiences. Those belonging to groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in research education and training (e.g., certain racial and ethnic minorities and individuals with disabilities) are strongly encouraged to apply to this program. Technical questions about NITRO Competitions can be directed NITRO Competitions staff. Process related questions can be directed to Sharence Adams by email or telephone at 312-503-2813. Questions related to potential candidate eligibility or qualification can be directed to Bill Schnaper.
