Research Incubator Program: Breaking down barriers for early-career investigators

March 8, 2023  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Research Incubator, part of the Eisenberg Family Depression Center’s Data & Design Core, is a multifaceted program designed to equip emerging scholars with the essential building blocks necessary to develop a robust research career. Its first cohort welcomed participants with diverse backgrounds from across the university.

The program is available to all pre-tenure U-M faculty and trainees looking to use existing data sources to investigate mental health-related research questions. It is particularly valuable for investigators who have experienced hurdles in seeing their research ideas through to completion or are new to mental health research. 

You are strongly encouraged to apply if you have an idea for a research project using existing data and could benefit from our team’s support to get your idea off the ground.

Working closely with our dedicated staff, participants will be able to generate manuscripts and preliminary data for grants, among other outcomes. Participation involves a few hours per week for no more than a year, including individual and group meetings.

To be considered, submit your application by Monday, April 10 at 11:59 p.m. Participants will be notified by mid-May of their application status. Projects will begin in September 2023.
