Summer Training for Underrepresented Junior Faculty

This opportunity has already passed.

The Summer Institute Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) are now accepting applications. Space is limited for the 2019 mentored summer training programs so apply early!

Who: Eligible applicants are junior-level faculty or transitioning postdoctoral scientists with background deemed under-represented in the biomedical or health sciences, and are United States Citizens or Permanent Residents. Postdocs must have a faculty appointment letter at the time of matriculation into the selected summer institute program. Research interests should be compatible with those of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders.

What: Nine unique Summer Institute programs with intensive mentored training opportunities to enhance the research skills and to promote the scientific and career development of trainees. Trainees will learn effective strategies for preparing, submitting and obtaining external funding for research purposes, including extensive tips on best practices. Trainees will also be able to apply for small grants to support mentored-pilot research projects. Research emphasis varies by program.

Where/When: Varies by program. (Dates subject to change, check the PRIDE program website.)
