The School of Medicine has announced a call for applications for the Faculty Flex Voucher Pilot Program.
“Junior faculty members are often faced with the critical challenge of jump-starting their careers at the same time that family/childcare obligations are least flexible,” said Ann Brown, MD, MHS, vice dean for faculty and associate professor of medicine (Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutrition).
The Faculty Flex Voucher Pilot Program was created to address that challenge, added Dr. Brown.
Faculty Flex Vouchers will be awarded for services up to $2,500, and are designed to be used in a wide variety of ways by connecting junior faculty members with high quality academic services that facilitate their engagement in scholarly work.
Vouchers can be used for institutional services available through the Duke Office of Clinical Research (DOCR), the Communications Publications Services group at the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI), and the Medical Center Library.
Application deadline for the 2014 program is Fri., Oct. 31, 2014.
