2019 ISEH Junior Faculty Grant Writing Workshop

Purpose: Obtaining independent research funding is one of the most significant challenges for junior faculty. This workshop is intended to provide in depth and personalized mentoring in grantsmanship for junior faculty members of the ISEH.

Goals: Each participant will:

  • Receive training and mentorship in grant writing skills
  • Develop grantsmanship skills by reviewing grants-in-progress of a peer group.
  • Leave the program with a network of peers willing to provide regular constructive grant feedback.
  • Leave the program with a grant ready to submit for funding.

Target audience: Junior faculty who have not yet received their first independent grant (e.g. USA R01, European ERC or equivalent)


Program description: We will accept up to 12 participants who will receive small group coaching from a senior faculty mentor in the field of hematology.


Participant requirements: Participants should be open to sharing their work-in-progress and receiving feedback. Participants must be an assistant professor (or equivalent, either tenure or non-tenure track) at an academic institution who has not yet received NIH R01, European ERC or equivalent. Participants must be willing to commit to full participation in the program, which includes attending a full day workshop the day before the ISEH Annual meeting and participating in 3-6 monthly video or teleconference meetings with the working group after the workshop. Investigators who have already received competitive extramural funding are not eligible (this does not include career development grants).


Deadline Extended!: Applications will be due 25 June, 2019. By 31 July, 2019, applicants must submit a version of their Specific Aims page for review by the senior faculty mentors.


Cost: The participation fee is $450 USD for ISEH members and $600 USD for non-members, which covers meeting materials, lunch, and program costs.
