The next application deadline for the BRAIN Initiative Advanced Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K99/R00) is June 12, 2019 (resubmission deadline is July 12, 2019).
The NIH BRAIN Initiative Advanced Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K99/R00) program aims to enhance diversity in the neuroscience workforce and maintain a strong cohort of new and talented, NIH-supported, independent investigators from diverse backgrounds in BRAIN Initiative research areas.
This program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of outstanding postdoctoral researchers with a research and/or clinical doctorate degree from mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. The program will provide independent NIH research support during this transition in order to help awardees launch competitive, independent research careers.
More information about applications can be found under PAR-18-813 (Independent Clinical Trial Required) and PAR-18-814 (Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed). Additional resources, including a technical assistance webinar, are available at: https://www.braininitiative.nih.gov/brain-programs/training.
The next deadline for new applications to the BRAIN Initiative Diversity K99/R00 is June 12, 2019 (resubmissions: July 12, 2019).
