Notice of Participation of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) in PAR-19-343 Maximizing Opportunities for Scientific and Academic Independent Careers (MOSAIC) Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K99/R00 Independent CT Not Allowed)

NIA participates in NIH-wide programs to increase diversity in the research workforce. The goal of this FOA is to help outstanding postdoctoral researchers who are considered under-represented minority in science to transition into independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. NIA welcomes applications in all fields of aging research, including basic science, diseases and disabling conditions of aging, the social and behavioral consequences of an aging society, and topics in between. A particular priority of NIA at the moment is research on Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD).
