The Trainee Investigator Network of Expertise (NoE) includes:

  • Undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows learning implementation research
  • Trainees who are interested in assisting with SIRC’s initiatives for trainees
  • Trainees who have participated in (e.g., as a research assistant) or conducted independent research in D&I and are interested in being a peer resource to SIRC trainee members (experience in D&I research is inclusive of dissemination & implementation science and related fields, such as community-based participatory research, community psychology, program evaluation, quality improvement in healthcare, health equity research, and health services research)


What do NoE members do?

All members of the research NoEs provide mentorship to implementation scientists earlier in their D&I career, and/or volunteer with SIRC’s various initiatives (e.g., hosting a webinar/office hour, providing mentorship, participating in Implementation Development Workshops).


How do I apply to the NoE?

You may apply to the Trainee Investigator NoE through an annual application sent out via the SIRC listserv. We will release the next call for NoE applications on January 8, 2024. Applications will be due on January 31, 2024.
