RFP Synopsis:

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is accepting applications to support early investigators who are establishing their independence as diabetes researchers. The award provides salary and research project support for up to four years, to enable the investigator to develop an independent and sustainable research program. Junior Faculty Development Awards can be used to support basic, clinical or translational research projects. Applicant must hold a PhD, MD, PharmD, DO or DPM degree or, for other health professionals, the equivalent doctoral-level health- or science-related degree, and possess the necessary skills and training to carry out the proposed work. One person must be specified as the Principal Investigator; multiple PIs/co-PIs are not permitted. At the time of application, applicants must hold a full-time independent faculty position up to and including Assistant Professor at a university, university-affiliated research institution or other non-profit research institution. The applicant should have no more than 10 years of research experience following receipt of their terminal degree. For the purposes of determining eligibility, time away from research (e.g. all clinical training, parental leave, medical/family leave) does not count toward the 10-year maximum. Any time spent engaged in part-time research activities may be pro-rated (e.g. four years of 50% research effort counts as two years of research training). If research training time is not consecutive, an explanation must be included prior to the biosketch outlining the reason for the gap in research experience. Applicants cannot currently hold or have previously received independent NIH project support as PI (e.g., NIH R00, R01, U01 or the equivalent). Applicants may not hold a Junior Faculty Development Award concurrently with other awards of similar intent (i.e., NIH K award series, including K99; other foundation/non-profit development awards); however, applicant may have completed previous career development funding. Applicants must agree to devote at least 75% of total time and effort towards research during the period of ADA funding. Indirect costs cannot exceed 10% of total direct costs.
