UCSF Center for Aging in Diverse Communities Pilot RFA

The 2020 Request for Applications for the Center for Aging in Diverse Communities (CADC) Scientist Program at University of California San Francisco is now open. This opportunity is for researchers located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The CADC is now requesting applications for CADC Scientists who will conduct pilot studies to investigate research questions within the scope of CADC’s goals among older African American, Latino, Asian American, Pacific Islander populations, or sexual and gender minorities of any race/ethnicity. We are committed to mentoring CADC Scientists during and following their one-year pilot study to support development of a successful research career.

The applicant must be a postdoctoral fellow or an assistant professor at the time of applying and must be from a racial/ethnic minority group or a member of a sexual and gender minority group (SGM) of any race/ethnicity as defined by self-identification, or from a socioeconomically disadvantaged background of any race/ethnicity as defined by NIH. If funded, the CADC Scientist will receive pilot funds and will be Principal Investigator (PI) of the pilot.  Applicants must not have received a previous independent research award of the R01 type from the NIH or similar funding agencies. Investigators who have received previous funding from faculty development awards (e.g., K awards) are eligible. Assistant professors or postdoctoral fellows located in any academic or research non-profit institution in the San Francisco Bay Area are eligible.

We encourage you to review the RFA for full details and assist us by forwarding this message and the attached RFA to your colleagues or posting it on your website or listserv.

Apply online at https://cadc.ucsf.edu/scientist-program. The application is due by 5pm on Wednesday, March 11th, 2020.

Applicants may email Dr. Leah Karliner with programmatic questions at leah.karliner@ucsf.edu. For general information or questions regarding the application process or this RFA, contact: Elizabeth Rojo at elizabeth.rojo@ucsf.edu.
