Comprehensive Early Faculty Initiation
By combining services, we can provide a year-long faculty initiation package for individuals beginning a faculty position or for a cohort of three to eight individuals, whether part of a cluster hire or brought together from different departments. The process is designed for pre-tenure faculty, ideally in the first to third year as assistant professors. It includes:
- Research Leadership Coaching for early-stage investigators, an 8-week course to help faculty members establish strong research groups
- An expanded Group Intensive Coaching to develop a competitive grant proposal over the course of 4 months, including live webinar sessions on proposal writing for foundations
- A capstone Research Leadership Coaching based on the program for advanced investigators
Activities are also designed to promote the development of a peer cohort for mutual mentoring and support as the participants advance in their careers.
Comprehensive Large Project Initiation
In the worst-case scenario, "teams" for high-value proposals are built simply by asking for biosketches. Here we combine research leadership development for advanced investigators with support for high-value proposals to create a solid team that can envision, design, and propose a large center or multi-investigator project.
- We modify the full-day large proposal workshop to focus entirely on a single team and a single grant solicitation to kickoff the support for high-value proposals, creating a supporting partnership between ATG consultants and the project team.
- Team leadership also participates in research leadership development and executive coaching. Tailored group Research Leadership Coaching for advanced investigators can also be used, adapted to the needs of the group of investigators and the specific targeted project.
- We integrate Support for High-Value Proposals with the leadership coaching to develop a competitive grant proposal
When investigators come together as a true team for large proposals, it is reflected in the quality of the proposal. More importantly, good team formation helps set up the structures for a center that will run successfully.
