We’re pleased to announce our first cohort of Maximizing Opportunities for Scientific and Academic Independent Careers (MOSAIC) program scholars. Each scholar will receive up to 5 years of mentored career development and research support and become part of a cohort-based career development program to expand their professional networks and gain additional skills and mentoring through programs administered by MOSAIC UE5 awardees: the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the American Society for Cell Biology, and the Association of American Medical Colleges.
The MOSAIC scholars program (K99/R00) is designed to transition promising postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds into independent faculty careers at research-intensive institutions. Applications are accepted three times per year, and the next due date is February 12. While most NIH institutes and centers (ICs) participate, if you’re a postdoc interested in the MOSAIC program but your research falls within the mission of an IC that is not participating, we encourage you to reach out to us to discuss your options.
If you have additional questions about MOSAIC, please see the funding opportunity announcement, our frequently asked questions, or contact Kenneth Gibbs. To learn more about the inaugural scholars, including those funded by other NIH ICs, see our MOSAIC Scholars webpage.
