Description:
The purpose of these programs is to provide support and protected time for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence.

The Award is for a well-trained individual who is in a mentored postdoctoral research position and wants to work in that environment for several years. The project should be one that the candidate designed in consultation with the mentor and will subsequently take to an independent research position. It is intended to support the development of an impactful research project, which, combined with a thorough career development plan, will prepare the candidate to launch a successful, independent research career.

Postdoctoral fellows can be supported within the first 6 years of cumulative postdoctoral research experience. For example, if the candidate has 36 months of cumulative postdoctoral research experience at the time of award, the maximum award duration would be 36 months.Please visit the website for more details.
