Bringing In The Research Dollars! (BiRD)

Program for Retaining, Supporting, and EleVating Early-career Researchers at Emory (PeRSEVERE)

Deadline: January 18, 2022 5 pm

Amount: $30,000


This program will offer 10–13 research supplement awards to eligible faculty. 


  • Emory School of Medicine full-time faculty holding the rank of instructor or assistant professor or who are within one year of appointment/promotion to associate professor and holding an MD, MBBS, or DO degree
  • Engagement in translational and clinical research addressing significant biomedical problems
  • A minimum of 50% professional effort allotted to research
  • Active current intra- or extramural career development funding in support of the candidate’s salary and research program
  • Award of research supplements will be prioritized to support early-career physician scientists who identify as women, Black, African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native peoples, people with disabilities, or who are at economic disadvantage
  • Applications should demonstrate a compelling, time-sensitive need for the supplement to regain research momentum because of family caregiving responsibilities or other issues caused by COVID-19. Typically, caregiving would be childcare, partner care, and/or eldercare, but candidates may make the case for other reasonable family caregiving responsibilities
