Additional Information

The purpose of the NINDS Faculty Development Award to Promote Diversity in Neuroscience Research (K01) is to provide junior faculty support and protected time (up to five years) for an intensive, supervised career development experience in neuroscience research.  The goal of the NINDS K01 is to diversify the pool of independent neuroscience research investigators and to enhance the probability of success in obtaining independent NIH or other independent research support. Mentoring is expected to be appropriate for this stage of career and should focus on enhancing tenure track (or equivalent) activities or metrics (i.e., helping the junior faculty member to navigate institutional expectations, scientific networks, and practices that are relevant to productivity and advancement at the institution).  Individuals from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research are eligible for support under this award if they have doctoral research degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent) and are in the first 3 years of a faculty tenure-track or equivalent position at the time of application.

Salary and Research Costs: Salary up to $95,000 per year plus related fringe benefits will be provided. A research allowance of up to $100,000 per year will be provided. K01 award recipients are encouraged to apply for independent research awards while the K award is active, and should consult with Dr. Michelle Jones-London for budget guidance in this process.

NINDS no longer utilizes the K01 mechanism for re-entry.  NINDS uses the Research Supplements to Promote Re-Entry into Biomedical and Behavioral Research Careers program for support of Re-Entry Candidates (see Notice NOT-NS-11-013).
