(Reissue of PAR-16-458) The purpose of this award is to support outstanding scientific training of highly promising postdoctoral candidates with outstanding mentors.
Candidates are eligible to apply for support from this program from ~12 months prior to the start of the proposed postdoctoral position
to within 12 months after starting in postdoctoral position.
Based on the early timeframe of eligibility, and the discouragement of inclusion of preliminary data, this NINDS F32 seeks to foster early, goal-directed planning and to encourage applications for bold and/or innovative projects by the candidate that have the potential for significant impact.
Applications are expected to incorporate strong training in quantitative reasoning and the quantitative principles of experimental design and analysis.
Support by this program is limited to the first 3 years of a candidate's activity in a specific laboratory or research environment, so as to further encourage early fellowship application and timely completion of mentored training of the postdoctoral candidate in a single environment.
