NINDS encourages applications for Mentored Research Scientist Development Awards. This announcement is made together with 17 other NIH components.
The award provides support for a sustained period of “protected time” for intensive research career development under the guidance of an experienced mentor or sponsor— in the biomedical, behavioral or clinical sciences—leading to research independence. It is expected that this sustained period of development and training will help awardees launch independent research careers and become competitive for new research project grant (R01) funding.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, director, Training and Career Development, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-4188; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-09-040.html.
