NINDS invites applications for Career Development Awards to promote diversity in neuroscience.
The purpose of this award is to support an intensive, supervised research career development experience for underrepresented neuroscientists that will provide them with the skills necessary to develop competitively funded and independent research programs. The proposed experience should substantially contribute to the research capabilities of the applicant, and the research should be in an area related to the NINDS mission. Funding support from the award will bolster efforts to address underrepresentation of certain racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds in biomedical and behavioral research careers. It also will increase the total pool of well-trained researchers and health professionals who are competitively funded to conduct neuroscience research.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Michelle Jones-London, program director, Office of Minority Health and Research, NINDS; telephone: 301- 451-7966; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-09-065.html.
