Postdoctoral Fellows

NINDS postdoctoral and clinical residency awards are intended to further develop the independence of a newly-trained doctorate recipient.

Postdoctoral Awards

F32

Fellowship designed specifically to support outstanding scientific training for graduating predoctoral and postdoctoral fellows who will begin or are just beginning a new postdoctoral training period in a given laboratory or research environment.

K01

For support of outstanding, mentored postdoctoral researchers to develop a potentially impactful research project with a comprehensive career development plan that will enable them to launch an independent research program.

SUP*

Administrative supplements to active NIH SBIR/STTR grants to enhance the diversity of the research workforce and increase the participation of women and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals in small businesses

SUP

Administrative supplements to currently active NIH research grants to support individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after an interruption.

SUP*

Administrative supplements to currently active NIH research grants to support the training of underrepresented individuals and enhance the diversity of the research workforce.

Transition to Faculty Awards

K22

To provide support to outstanding clinician-scientists to develop their independent research skills through a two phase program; an initial mentored research experience in the NINDS intramural program, followed by a period of independent research.

K22*

To support diverse postdocs to develop their independent research skills through a two-phase program: an initial mentored research experience followed by a period of independent research.

K99/ R00

To support both an initial mentored research experience (K99) followed by independent research (R00) for highly qualified, postdoctoral researchers, to secure an independent research position. Award recipients are expected to compete successfully for independent R01 support during the R00 phase.

K99/ R00*

To enhance biomedical research workforce diversity by supporting a mentored research experience (K99) followed by independent research (R00) for postdoctoral fellows working in research areas supported by the BRAIN Initiative.
