Upcoming webinar for the NIGMS Postdoctoral Research Associate (PRAT) training program on Tuesday June 22 at 2 PM EDT. The webinar will be of special interest to graduate students likely to defend in the next year, recent Ph.D. graduates who may be interested in pursuing postdoctoral research at the NIH, or NIH postdocs who began their training on/after June 1, 2020. The PRAT Program is especially interested in ensuring the applicant pool reflects the diversity of the biomedical Ph.D.
The NIGMS PRAT Program is a competitive three-year postdoctoral fellowship program that provides high quality research training in the basic biomedical sciences in NIH intramural research laboratories, and prepares trainees for leadership positions in biomedical careers. The program places special emphasis on training fellows in all scientific areas supported by NIGMS, including but not limited to biological chemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, cellular and molecular biology, computational biosciences, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology, and technology development. Appointments are made at competitive stipend levels, commensurate with experience and recognition of selection for this program, and fellows receive a travel and training allowance.
