NIH Early Independence Award to let you skip the postdoc phase

December 5, 2011

Check out this announcement of the NIH’s Early Independence Award Program.

According to the announcement, “The NIH Director’s Early Independence Award Program provides a mechanism for exceptional, early career scientists to bypass traditional postdoctoral training and move into independent academic positions directly upon completion of their graduate degrees (Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent). Early Independence Award projects will receive up to $250,000 in direct costs each year for up to 5 years. The deadline for submitting applications is January 30, 2012, and the NIH expects to issue 10 awards through this program in 2012.”

UCSD can only submit two applications for this award. Please see the attachment for more information.RFA NIH Early Independence Award 2011
