Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO) promotes biomedical research training in allergic, immunologic, or infectious diseases. Applicants for INRO should be talented senior-level undergraduate students, those who have recently completed a master’s degree, or those who are in their final year of a master’s degree program. Through INRO, the NIAID Office of Research Training & Development (ORTD) sponsors postbaccalaureate research trainees (postbacs) from U.S. populations underrepresented in the biomedical sciences and those dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion — as defined by Notice of NIH’s Interest in Diversity Notice. Individuals from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
Candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to the promotion of diversity and inclusion in the biomedical sciences and be actively pursuing a postbac research training position – also called an Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) – in NIAID at the time of their INRO application.
If selected for INRO, finalists will have the opportunity to get to know the other finalists in their cohort and meet with prospective NIAID mentors, with the expectation that all finalists will join an NIAID laboratory and start their postbac training on June 12, 2023.
NIH Postbac IRTA positions are full-time research training positions for 1 – 2 years.
