Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites Proposals for Public Health Services and Systems Research: Mentored Research Scientist Development Awards
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites Proposals for Public Health Services and ystems Research: Mentored Research Scientist Development Awards
Public Health Services and Systems Research is a multidisciplinary field of study that examines the organization, financing, delivery, and quality of public health services within communities and the resulting impact on population health. The National Coordinating Center for Public Health Services and Systems Research and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation seek to expand the evidence base for effective decision-making in public health practice and policy through research that responds to the questions defined in the National Agenda for PHSSR.
This call for proposals is designed to increase the PHSSR evidence base and strengthen the pool of researchers available to conduct PHSSR. Successful proposals will 1) build PHSSR evidence relevant to public health practitioners and policy-makers; and 2) provide support and protected time for an intensive, supervised career development experience to help junior faculty build research independence.
Preference will be given to proposals from junior faculty who have a research or professional doctoral degree in public health or a related discipline and who are based at a higher education institution or other nonprofit or government agency that is capable of providing an intensive, supervised career development experience in PHSSR. Applicants must be supervised by an established on-site PHSSR mentor and have a working relationship with a public health practice mentor. The research mentor should be an active investigator in the area of the proposed research and have demonstrated mentoring experience with junior researchers.
Approximately $800,000 is available through this solicitation. Up to eight grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded for a maximum of twenty-four months.
