UPDATE: The slides [PDF, 1.2MB] and video from the Webinar for Postdoctoral Research Associate Training (PRAT) Program Applicants have been posted.
We’re hosting a webinar for students and fellows interested in the PRAT Program for the October 3 receipt date:
Wednesday, June 20, 1:30-2:30 p.m. ET
PRAT is a competitive three-year fellowship program that prepares trainees for leadership positions in biomedical careers. Training includes a mentored laboratory research experience and intensive career and leadership development activities. PRAT fellows conduct research in laboratories in the NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) in basic biomedical research areas within the NIGMS mission. These areas include, but are not limited to, biological chemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, cellular and molecular biology, computational biosciences, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology, and technology development.
Applicants can be graduate students considering postdoctoral research opportunities or fellows with no more than two years of postdoctoral research experience by the time of appointment to the PRAT program (late summer 2019). All applications require connecting with an investigator in the NIH IRP in advance of writing the application.
