NIH Visiting Fellowship Program for Foreign Scientists
>> NIH National Institute of Health - Visiting Fellowship Program for Foreign Scientists
Deadlines: accepted continuously
Postdoctoral Visiting Fellowships provide the opportunity for recent doctoral degree recipients to enhance their research skills in the resource-rich National Institutes of Health (NIH) environment, which consists of more than 1200 laboratories located on the main campus in Bethesda, MD as well as in Baltimore and Frederick, MD, Research Triangle Park, NC, Phoenix, AZ, and Hamilton, MT devoted exclusively to biomedical research. Trainees pursue both basic and clinical research free from the demands of obtaining grants and teaching, although opportunities to do both are available.
To be eligible to apply for this program, candidates must hold a doctoral degree and have no more than five years of relevant research experience since receipt of their most recent doctoral degree. Citizens of all non-U.S. countries are welcome to apply.
Awards are granted for an initial 12-month period and may be renewed for up to five years, based on satisfactory performance and the continued availability of funds.
