Postdoctoral Fellows

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

Transition to Faculty Awards

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.

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.

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.

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. 

This program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds conducting AD/ADRD research into independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. The program will provide independent NIH research support during this transition in order to help awardees establish independent research programs in the AD/ADRD field.

Postdoctoral Awards

Fellowship designed to enhance the research training of early postdoctoral trainees who have the potential to become productive investigators in research areas that will advance the goals of the BRAIN Initiative.

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.

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.
