The National Institute of General Medical Sciences’ Postdoctoral Research Associate (PRAT) program is accepting applications from September 3 through October 3, 2017. Applications must be submitted via the Fi2 funding mechanism (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-16-130.html). PRAT fellows conduct research in scientific areas within the Institute’s mission while in an NIH intramural research program (IRP) lab. Before applying, applicants must identify a potential preceptor in the NIH IRP and develop a research proposal.
PRAT fellows receive 3 years of stipend support and additional benefits such as health insurance, a travel allowance and professional development training activities, including a monthly seminar series designed specifically for fellows.
