There is no substitute for one-on-one mentoring with a senior faculty member with substantive knowledge in your topic area to develop an idea, to understand its significance and relationship to the literature, and to establish a research strategy that is clear and feasible.
The Mentoring Committee’s seven members are senior scholars with diverse interests and disciplinary orientations, active NIH-funded research portfolios, and experience on review panels. The committee members also represent a wide set of backgrounds and encompass expertise from Economics, Sociology, and Psychology, as well as deep methodological knowledge in statistics and demographic methods.
Mentors will help junior faculty develop their scientific ideas throughout the year, through one-on-one attention and group activities, including opportunities to learn from other early-stage investigators who have successfully developed a proposal.
