Announcing: Early Career Data Connections


This initiative facilitates connections between early career investigators and researchers at the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities to provide those early in their careers access to large, federally-funded data sets to conduct publishable analyses that can advance the research agenda. Involvement in this initiative will provide early career researchers professional networking opportunities with researchers outside of the home institution, and promote expanded knowledge and expertise in mental health services and quantitative analysis. 

Live & Learn is responsible for facilitating connections between junior investigators and Temple University researchers.
Our focus is on promoting opportunities for researchers with lived experience of the topics they study, or those who incorporate such perspectives into their research.

Project Objectives

  • Encourage research on community living and people with psychiatric disabilities by students and junior investigators with lived experience
  • Build capacity of such investigators in academia to conduct research, analysis, and publish peer-reviewed papers
  • Foster expanded professional networks through collaborative relationships with TU Collaborative RRTC PIs and other researchers

Who is considered an "early career investigator" for the purpose of this initiative? 

  • Enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program, or a post-doctoral fellow or junior faculty (before tenure)
  • Identify as having a psychiatric disability/history, or be someone who conducts research that incorporates the perspectives of such individuals

Why get involved?

The Early Career Data Connection Initiative is an opportunity for people earlier in their careers to have access to large, federally-funded data sets to conduct research that can advance the mental health services research agenda. Involvement in this project will provide professional networking opportunities with researchers outside of your home institution, and promote expanded knowledge and expertise in mental health services and quantitative analysis. 

The ECDC Initiative is not a training program where students are directed by a faculty member. Early career investigators are encouraged to identify their goals for their projects in partnership with the Temple University PI on the data set. Relationships between early career investigators and PIs will be individually negotiated, with the hope of honing leadership skills - in addition to research experience - with the support of the PI.

Early career investigators will be afforded authorship on academic publications arising from their work.
