San Diego IRACDA (Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Award) is an NIH/NIGMS-sponsored program designed to provide three years of mentored, post-doctoral research experience in biomedical/biological sciences at UC San Diego, and an opportunity to develop academic skills including teaching through mentored teaching experiences at our partner institutions. The IRACDA program aims especially to develop a diverse group of highly trained biomedical scientists.

The program provides training in research, teaching and other skills that are needed to conduct high quality research and pursue an independent research and teaching career in an academic environment.
