New Investigator Mentoring Program (PDHP) Applications Sought

January 24, 2020

The University of Michigan’s Population Dynamics and Health Program (PDHP), part of the Population Studies Center at the Institute for Social Research, is pleased to accept applications for its 2020 New Investigator Mentoring Program, which is designed to offer significant support to 2-4 new investigators each year while they are preparing research proposals for NIH. We define “new investigators” as those who have who have not previously been principal investigators of an NIH R01 grant mechanism and will prioritize investigators who meet the definition of “Early Stage Investigators” in NIH policy on “Next Generation Investigators” (NOT-OD-17-101) including faculty who have received their degree within the past 10 years (or the end of post-graduate clinical training).The PDHP New Investigator Mentoring Program (NIMP) assigns each new investigator to a senior faculty member who has a track record of successful NIH support. The NIMP provides salary support for a full month and the senior faculty mentor for an overlapping week. The senior faculty member may serve as a co-Investigator on the research proposal being developed or may serve as an engaged advisor without being a collaborator on the proposed research. In addition to the salary support, the NIMP also provides other resources to support proposal development.DEADLINE: 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 12, 2020.
