NIAID is the second largest institute at the NIH with research facilities in Maryland and Montana. Applications for Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO) 2020 will be accepted September 1 – November 22, 2019!
Applicants for INRO are talented graduating seniors (bachelor’s or master’s) or those who have recently completed a undergraduate or master’s degree. Through INRO, the NIAID training office sponsors postbaccalaureate trainees from U.S. populations underrepresented in the biomedical sciences and those dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion (NIH’s Interest in Diversity Notice). Individuals from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

Those selected for INRO will visit the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland in February 2020 and meet with potential mentors to discuss training opportunities in allergic, immunologic, and infectious disease research. If offered a position in an NIAID laboratory, the student will be supported for a 1-year postbaccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) starting June 15, 2020.
