Applications open for Community Engaged Research Core Faculty Fellowship Program

Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute‘s Community Engaged Research Core is now accepting applications for its 2019-2020 Faculty Fellowship Program.

This opportunity is open to all Penn State junior or mid-level faculty who want to advance their practice of community-engaged research. Community-engaged research is the active involvement and participation of community stakeholders. The degree of community involvement in research is determined beforehand and falls on a continuum of possibilities from collaborating fully in all aspects of research to being involved in a targeted part of the research study.

This fellowship is for:

  • researchers already engaged in time- and resource-demanding community-engaged research
  • early-career researchers and advanced trainees desiring hands-on experience and mentoring in the science and practice of community-engaged research

In addition to being mentored and gaining research experience, fellows will be part of the Community Engaged Research Core team, which involves attending monthly meetings and working with the team on CERC activities and consultations as part of the experience.

Applications are due Nov. 1, 2018.
