Job Summary: The School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) has a deep and profound commitment in diversity both as an end in itself, but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applicants from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion. Housed within the UW SMPH, the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) brings together four UW Schools (SMPH, Nursing, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine), the College of Engineering, and the Marshfield Clinic Research Institute in an infrastructure to support clinical and translational research investigators and scholars across diverse disciplines and settings. The ICTR portfolio of programming includes supporting clinical and translational research investigators and their teams, sponsoring annual pilot research grants, workforce development offerings, and building research partnerships with on-and off-campus partners to advance our mission. The ICTR Mentorship Initiatives Team supports the efforts of the ICTR Translational Workforce Development Core. Effective mentoring relationships are crucial for developing the next generation of researchers and scholars. UW scholars serve as a national resource for mentorship scholarship and training. Their work has resulted in the development, dissemination, implementation, and assessment of evidence-based mentorship training interventions. A great deal of this work has been housed within ICTR and many of these efforts have been accomplished in partnership with Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) sites across the country by leveraging local resources, CTSA funds, and NIH Diversity Consortium Program (DPC) funds competitively awarded to UW and its collaborators as part of the leadership of the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN). The current ICTR strategic plan includes plans for ICTR to serve as a catalyst to establish, build, deliver, evaluate, and disseminate training modules and toolkits in mentorship and team science. This work has the potential to promote the need and capacity for institutional culture change that recognizes mentoring and engagement in team science as critical factors in diversifying and advancing the biomedical workforce. To realize this strategic goal, the ICTR Mentorship Initiatives Team is expanding their efforts to (1) continue to support and advance its efforts as a national leader in mentorship across the CTSA consortium; (2) develop, test, and disseminate curricula and resources that can be used across the CTSA consortium to optimize mentoring relationships; (3) continue coordinated, centralized data collection across the CTSA consortium to advance the science of mentorship; and (4) contribute in a significant way to institutional change efforts around mentorship through communities of practice. The individual in this position will report to the Director of the ICTR Mentorship Initiatives Team and work collaboratively with team members. They will provide research coordination and expertise, develop and enhance a portfolio of mentorship interventions, and deliver mentorship education to stakeholder-based projects to advance research and educational knowledge.
