Teaming for Early Career Researchers

Man attending Zoom meeting

This curriculum is designed to build your capacity to participate in and lead effective interdisciplinary and translational scientific teams. It addresses the shift in science from an individual-based approach to a teamwork model of conducting clinical and translational research. The program consists of completion of a self-paced online course followed by participation in six virtual workshops, which are each 2 hours in duration.

This program is intended for early career scientists, which include doctoral students (PhD, PharmD, DPT, etc), post-doctoral trainees, fellows, instructors and K awardees.


CCTSI Affiliate faculty from Colorado State University will provide the workshops. Dr. Jeni Cross is a Professor in the Department of Sociology. She is a sought-after speaker, regularly lecturing on cultivating transdisciplinary teams, developing behavior change programs, and creating systems change. Her TedX talk on the 3 Myths of Behavior Change has been viewed over 1 million times.


The structure of the program is that prior to attending the workshops, a self-paced online module, Teaming 101, must be completed. After completion of the Teaming 101 module, attendance at the six workshops can occur in any order that fits with your schedule. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all workshops will be held as webinars. Registration for webinars closes 4 business days prior to the scheduled webinar. Zoom links and details for webinars will be sent to registrants 1-2 business days before the webinar. Participants are expected to track which workshops they have completed and those workshops still necessary to complete.  


First, we ask you to complete the Program Registration form by clicking on the Program Registration button. Once the Teaming for Early Career Researcher registration form is completed, you will be asked to fill out the pre-assessment survey.
