National Institutes of Health (NIH) Funding Opportunities

Posted: 9/20/2019 (Funding)

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has two upcoming funding opportunities:

  1. Maximizing Opportunities for Scientific and Academic Independent Careers (MOSAIC) Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity: The purpose of the MOSAIC Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity program is to support a cohort of early career, independent investigators from diverse backgrounds conducting research in NIH mission areas. The long-term goal of this program is to enhance diversity in the biomedical research workforce. The MOSAIC K99/R00 program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of promising postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds from their mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions at research-intensive institutions. The MOSAIC K99/R00 program will provide independent NIH research support before and after this transition to help awardees launch successful, independent research careers. Additionally, MOSAIC K99/R00 scholars will be part of organized scientific cohorts and will be expected to participate in mentoring, networking, and professional development activities coordinated by MOSAIC Institutionally-Focused Research Education Award to Promote Diversity (UE5) grantees. Link to opportunity: PAR-19-343 (K99/R00 – Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
  2. Data Sharing for Demographic Research Infrastructure Program: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to increase the impact of NICHD-funded research within the scientific mission of the NICHD Population Dynamics Branch (PDB) by providing research infrastructure to: promote data sharing; support the development of procedures and technologies for data sharing; disseminate best practices in data sharing; provide a resource that catalogs NICHD-funded data available for secondary analysis; and promote the secondary analysis of data collected through NICHD grants to research teams outside the original grantees. Link to opportunity: RFA-HD-20-001 (R24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
