UPDATE: The global vacancy announcement for Health Scientist Administrators is now available and is open through January 31.
A global recruitment is a way NIH hires for common positions such as Health Scientist Administrators. NIH creates a single announcement in USAJobs.gov which can be used by any Institute or Center with an approved vacancy. Applying to a global recruitment means that, with a single announcement, hiring officials throughout the entire NIH will have access to your application. Most importantly, if your application is determined to be qualified for the recruitment, it may remain active for at least three months. This means that if NIGMS receives approval to recruit, our selecting officials will be able to view your application immediately.
To continue our efforts to catalyze the modernization of biomedical graduate education, we invite eligible NIGMS-funded T32 predoctoral training programs to submit administrative supplement requests (NOT-GM-19-015) to develop new curricular and training activities that enhance the program’s ability to: 1) provide graduate trainees with a strong foundation in research design and methods in areas related to conducting rigorous and transparent research to enhance reproducibility; 2) prepare students for diverse careers in the biomedical research workforce; 3) develop the knowledge and skills of trainees to enhance laboratory safety; and 4) develop the technical, operational, and professional skills of predoctoral biomedical researchers.
Since supplemental grant funding comes in a variety of flavors, with different purposes, it’s not surprising that there’s confusion about which kinds of supplements MIRA grantees may apply for and which they may not. Here’s a quick run-down.
