RTI International is one of the world's leading research institutes, dedicated to improving the human condition by turning knowledge into practice.
The RTI University Scholars Program provides support half of each scholar's salary and fringe for distinguished academic researchers to spend scholarly leave time at RTI, actively collaborating with our experts.
The program's goal is to foster collaboration and catalyze opportunities for externally funded, joint projects in the future.
The ideal Scholar is a tenured- or research-track faculty member at the Associate Professor level or higher, with a commitment to collaboration and a strong research record in a field that is compatible with RTI.
For the 2019-2020 Academic Year, the program is open to faculty from Duke University and the University of North Carolina's sixteen university campuses. Priority areas are as follows:
RTI provides a stimulating environment for individual and collaborative research. Scholars are expected to serve most of their residency at our headquarters in North Carolina's Research Triangle Park, but may serve a portion of their time in any of our U.S. regional or international offices.
Successful applicants will be provided with workspace, a RTI email address, and access to IT support, conference rooms, and a reference library.
An interdisciplinary panel of RTI researchers and administrators will review submissions. Major considerations in the evaluation process include the likelihood that the period of residence will result in collaborative work of significance and alignment with RTI's research, mission, and priorities.
Applicants are asked to submit the online application that includes the following information by January 10, 2019:
Applications should not exceed 8 pages, excluding the applicant's curriculum vitae. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
