The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Short-term Institutional Research Training Grants. This announcement is made together with 13 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).*
The objective of the short-term research training (T35) program is to develop or enhance research training opportunities for individuals interested in careers in biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research. The program may also be used to support other types of predoctoral and postdoctoral training in focused, often emerging, scientific areas relevant to the mission of the NIH funding institute or center. The training program must be in either the basic, clinical, or behavioral research aspects of the health-related sciences.
This program is intended to encourage students to pursue research careers by exposure to, and short-term involvement in, the health-related sciences. The training should be of sufficient depth to enable the trainees—upon completion of the program—to have thorough exposure to the principles underlying the conduct of research.
For more information, potential applicants should contact the Office of Training and Career Development, Division of Extramural Research, NINDS, Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Boulevard, Room 2154, Bethesda, MD 20892; telephone: 301-496-4188; fax: 301-402-4370; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
