The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Office of Diversity and Health Disparities will offer a Research Development Seminar Series Workshop (Part I) on February 10-11, 2014 in Bethesda, Maryland for early stage investigators (from underrepresented, diverse groups) interested in applying and receiving funded research support from NIDA. The Seminar Series is designed to provide information and experiences to participants that will improve their understanding of the competitive research funding process and further their interest in applying for research grants. During this workshop, new investigators will hear about research priorities from NIDA, learn about the NIH grant application and peer-review process, and discuss and get feedback from NIDA program officials and NIDA/NIH funded investigators on their research proposals.
To be eligible, applicants: (1) must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree; (2) demonstrate an interest in drug abuse and addiction research; and (3) be either in a late-stage post-doctoral position or ideally have a “full-time” appointment at the academic institution.
Interested applicants should submit:
- Abstract of current research project
- One page personal statement, which includes a description of research experience and interests as they relate to substance abuse and addiction research and long-term professional goals in a research career
- Detailed curriculum vitae
Upon selection for this program, NIDA will provide you with additional program information including submission of a development research proposal. There are a limited number of slots available for this workshop.
Applications must be submitted by email to Flair Lindsey (email@example.com) by Friday, December 13, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be emailed no later than Friday, December 20, 2013.
