Office of Training, Career Development and Workforce Diversity
The Office of Training, Career Development, and Workforce Diversity (TCDWD) supports the training of students (high school, undergraduate and graduate), postdoctoral fellows, clinician-scientists, and faculty across NINDS research areas. The Office develops training opportunities and provides programmatic support through grant awards, local and national workshops, and direct consultation with applicants and awardees.
TCDWD also creates and supports programs to prepare diverse students and fellows to pursue research careers in neuroscience. Specific programs seek to enhance diversity of the neuroscience workforce by supporting individuals from underrepresented ethnic/racial minority groups or disadvantaged backgrounds, individuals with disabilities, and individuals re-entering the biomedical research workforce.
