The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Physician Faculty Scholars Program helps outstanding junior faculty in medical schools to develop their careers in academic medicine. Under the program, talented junior faculty receive support to enhance their skills and productivity through institutional and national mentoring, specific research experience and protected time in which to acquire it. Preference will be given to applicants interested in the fields of health policy research, epidemiology, health services research or community-based research.

Each candidate must meet the following requirements:

  • be a physician (MD or DO) who is a US citizen or a permanent resident,
  • be a junior faculty member in any discipline in a regular line position that could lead to tenure,
  • be committed to a career in academic medicine,
  • provide evidence of research skills (having had a research fellowship or equivalent training),
  • have had at least two papers published in peer-reviewed journals at the time of the application deadline,
  • demonstrate excellence as a teacher, and
  • be active in patient care at least one half day per week.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, July 14, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a 1-page summary of the research questions and aims of the proposed project, and a 2-page biographical sketch.
