Clinician Scientist Awards
Early Career Cancer Clinical Investigator Award (ECIA)
The Early Career Cancer Clinical Investigator Award (ECIA) recognizes and supports outstanding early career clinical investigators at NCI-Designated Cancer Centers who demonstrate a commitment to becoming an academic clinical researcher and supporting the NCI-funded clinical trials enterprise. The ECIA is designed to promote the retention of early career investigators who wish to initiate a career path that focuses on interventional cancer clinical trials and academic clinical research. Eligible candidates for the ECIA are full-time faculty members who are board-certified clinicians and least two years post last clinical fellowship and no more than six years from their initial academic appointment.
Applicants are nominated by their Cancer Center Director based on qualifications, interests, accomplishments, and motivation, and based upon the nominee's intent to pursue an academic career in clinical research. The award provides partial salary support for two years for the awardee to engage in activities and efforts related to the award, with the awardee devoting at least 15 percent effort to the activities associated with this award.
