NINDS invites applications for Midcareer Investigator Awards in Patient-Oriented Research (POR). This announcement is made together with 18 other NIH components.
The award enables mid-career clinician scientists to devote more time to and augment their POR capabilities, and to mentor new clinical investigators in POR. The award provides “protected time” to midcareer clinical investigators who are typically at the associate professor level (or equivalent) and who have their own independent peer-reviewed research support. This award is meant to stabilize the careers of these investigators so that they can continue to conduct POR and be available as POR mentors.
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-09-037.html.
