The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for National Institutes of Health (NIH) Pathway to Independence (PI) Awards. This announcement is made together with 23 other components of the NIH.
One of the most challenging transitions in any research career is that from postdoctoral trainee to independent scientist. NIH believes that the creativity and innovation of new independent investigators in their early career stages play an integral role in addressing our nation’s biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. The PI award has two phases—a mentored phase of up to 2 years at an eligible extramural sponsoring institution/organization or NIH intramural laboratory followed by an independent scientist phase of up to 3 years sponsored by an extramural institution/organization to which the individual has been recruited.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, Director, Training and Career Development, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-4188; e-mail: NINDStrainingoffice@ninds.nih.gov.
