Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards—Individual Postdoctoral Fellows

NINDS invites applications for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Postdoctoral Fellows.  This announcement is made together with 21 other NIH components.

The postdoctoral fellowship award supports promising postdoctoral applicants who have the potential to become productive and successful independent researchers.  The proposed postdoctoral training must offer an opportunity to enhance the applicant's understanding of the health-related sciences, and must be within the broad scope of biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research.  The overall purpose of the award is to help ensure that diverse pools of highly trained scientists will be available in adequate numbers to address the Nation’s research needs.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, director, Training and Career Development, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-4188; email:  korns@ninds.nih.gov.  For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-09-210.html.

 

Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards—Individual Predoctoral Fellows

NINDS invites applications for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Predoctoral Fellows.  This announcement is made together with 8 other NIH components.

The predoctoral fellowship supports promising doctoral candidates who will be performing dissertation research and training in scientific health-related fields during the tenure of the award.  The award provides up to five years of support for research training which leads to the PhD or equivalent research degree, the combined MD/PhD degree, or another formally combined professional degree and research doctoral degree in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences.  The overall purpose of the award is to help ensure that diverse pools of highly trained scientists will be available in adequate numbers to address the Nation’s research needs.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, director, Training and Career Development, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-4188; email:  korns@ninds.nih.gov.  For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-09-208.html.

 

Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards—Individual Predoctoral Fellowships to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research

NINDS encourages applications for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Predoctoral Fellows to promote diversity in health-related research.  This announcement is made together with 21 other NIH components.

The purpose of this fellowship is to enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral, health services, and clinical research labor force in the United States by providing opportunities for academic institutions to identify and recruit students from diverse populations to seek graduate degrees in health-related research. The goal is to increase the number of scientists pursuing careers in biomedical, behavioral, social, clinical, or health services research.  This fellowship provides up to five years of support for research training leading to the PhD or equivalent research degree, the combined MD/PhD degree, or another formally combined professional degree and research doctoral degree in biomedical, behavioral, health services, or clinical sciences.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Michelle Jones-London, program director, Office of Minority Health and Research, NINDS; telephone: 301-451-7966; email:  jonesmiche@ninds.nih.gov.  For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-09-209.html.

 

Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards—Individual Predoctoral MD/PhD and Other Dual Degree Fellows

NINDS encourages applications for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Predoctoral MD/PhD and other Dual Degree Fellows.  This announcement is made together with 9 other NIH components.

The enormous complexity of biomedical, behavioral, and clinical science today prevents the standard course of study at most medical and health professional schools from providing the experience necessary to develop researchers.  Integrated curricula that combine training with extensive research experience leading to a second advanced degree have been developed because individuals who are both physicians/clinicians and trained scientists play a vital role in research.  There is a critical need for physician and clinician scientists to study human disease through rigorous research.  This award supports individual predoctoral MD/PhD and other dual doctoral degree students with the expectation that these training opportunities will increase the number of future physician and clinician investigators in basic, translational, or clinical research.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, director, Training and Career Development, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-4188; email:  korns@ninds.nih.gov.  For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-09-207.html.

 

Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards—Individual Senior Fellows

NINDS invites applications for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Senior Fellows.  This announcement is made together with 15 other NIH components.

This award supports experienced scientists who wish to make major changes in their research careers or who wish to broaden their scientific backgrounds by acquiring new research capabilities as independent investigators in scientific health-related fields.  These awards enable individuals with at least seven years of research experience beyond the doctorate, and who have progressed to the stage of independent investigator, to take time from regular professional responsibilities to receive training to increase their scientific capabilities.  In most cases, this award is used to support sabbatical experiences for established independent scientists seeking support for retraining or additional career development.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, director, Training and Career Development, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-4188; email:  korns@ninds.nih.gov.  For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-09-211.html.
