  • Grand Rounds Committee (seasonal)

Working with Principal Investigators (PIs), this team is responsible for many of the aspects of sponsored research projects, from pre-award to close-out. The team assists with most all of the non-Research Plan components of an application, and particularly the budget. To varying degrees (dependent on the PI), the Administrative Assistants take charge of getting necessary information from other investigators (e.g., Biographical Sketches) and uploading forms. Senior members of the team generally function as our link to the Office of Research and Project Administration (ORPA). Once funding is awarded, senior members of the team meet at least monthly with PIs to monitor grant spending and to discuss any problems or issues. The team also assists with Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPR), and any additional reporting to NIH or other agencies.

The Research Administration team maintains the “paper trail” for faculty salaries and distributions, and handles salary cap restriction limits.

The Research Administration team also manages a long list of contracts, working closely with the Office of Research Accounting and Costing Standards (ORACS) for timely invoicing and financial oversight.

With respect to supervision of this very well-functioning team, the Associate Chair for Research is always available to help problem-solve, attend “nuts and bolts” meetings with PIs and team members as necessary and provide guidance and support when warranted.


  • MD or PhD in a clinical specialty from an accredited university.

  • Eligible for appointment as a tenured associate professor or professor.

  • Substantial record of leadership and achievement in academic medicine.

  • History of sustained programmatic research as principal investigator with NIH or equivalent funding.

  • Clear commitment to mentorship and demonstrated track record in mentoring academic faculty.
