Webinar - NIGMS Postdoctoral Research Associate (PRAT)
Tuesday, July 14, 2020 · 2 PM - 3 PM
Biomedical Graduate Students! There is an upcoming webinar for the NIGMS Postdoctoral Research Associate (PRAT) training program on Thursday, July 14 at 2 PM. The webinar will be of special interest to graduate students likely to defend in the next year or recent Ph.D. graduates who may be interested in pursuing postdoctoral research at the NIH. The PRAT Program is especially interested in ensuring the applicant pool reflects the diversity of the biomedical Ph.D. talent pool, and I am requesting your help in identifying potential candidates.
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.
