  • NINR's Graduate Partnerships Program - Apply by December 1

    The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) is pleased to announce it is now accepting applications for its 2021 Graduate Partnerships Program (GPP). The NINR GPP is an Institutional Partnership that combines the academic environment of a university with the comprehensive research resources available at the NIH. NINR invites all PhD doctoral nursing students to consider this unique research training opportunity.

    A graduate nursing student selected to become an NINR GPP fellow conducts doctoral coursework at the partnership university. After all coursework is completed, the fellow then comes to the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland, to begin research toward a doctoral dissertation. NINR GPP fellows focus their dissertation research primarily in pathophysiological mechanisms related to symptoms and symptom management, health promotion, disease prevention, tissue injury, and genetics. The fellow’s academic advisor and an NIH scientist serve as co-mentors throughout the dissertation process, which is completed at NIH in coordination with the fellow’s dissertation committee.

    NINR’s Division of Intramural Research Training Director Dr. Pamela Tamez encourages PhD nursing students to consider the program, noting “the NINR GPP is an excellent opportunity for students to work with renowned scientists and have access to world-class NIH facilities as well as the outstanding educational, career, and networking experiences.” NINR GPP fellows also receive support for up to three years, including a stipend, tuition allowance, health insurance, and modest funds for travel/training courses.

    To be considered eligible for the 2021 program, applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and have completed all doctoral coursework before joining the NINR GPP. Applicants must also submit an up-to-date curriculum vitae. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Three letters of reference are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, December 3, 2020. GRE scores are no longer required as part of the NINR GPP application.

  • Community Interventions to Reduce the Impact of COVID-19 on Health Disparity and Other Vulnerable Populations - Apply by December 15

    The COVID-19 pandemic and its associated mitigation strategies are expected to have significant psychosocial, behavioral, and socioeconomic impacts on health, which are exacerbated in populations that experience health disparities and other vulnerable groups, leading to disproportionately adverse consequences. Those experiencing health disparities prior to the COVID-19 pandemic are at increased risk of infection and other COVID-19 related consequences (e.g., job loss, unpaid leave, lost wages).

    Research is needed to test community interventions focused on the prevention (or slowing) of COVID-19 transmission, evaluate local and state policies and programs intended to mitigate COVID-19 exposure and improve adherence, and reduce the negative impact of the multifaceted consequences on the health of populations who experience health disparities and other vulnerable groups. This work may include leveraging and scaling existing resources (e.g., health education materials, technology, social media, mass media, social support networks, social services). In domains and populations in which the evidence base is limited, the development, testing, and implementation of novel or adapted interventions to address the negative health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic (including the unintended health consequences of population-level interventions) may also be needed to address the unique needs of populations.

    Research Objectives:

    Projects may evaluate existing or ongoing community-based programs or policies (i.e., natural experiments), or prospectively test new or adapted interventions. Multilevel interventions that do not solely target individuals, but also address the upstream determinants that influence individual functioning and health outcomes are strongly encouraged. Projects should be designed to test hypotheses about mechanisms of action that account for an intervention’s effects; mechanisms may operate at any level of analysis.

    Projects must include a focus on one or more NIH-designated populations that experience health disparities in the United States, or a population identified as vulnerable to COVID-19 infection, hospitalization,or mortality.

    Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis from June 10, 2020 through December 15, 2020 by 5:00 PM local time of the applicant organization. For more application information, click here.

  • NIJ Research Assistantship Program - Apply by December 23

    The NIJ Research Assistantship Program (RAP) offers highly qualified doctoral students the opportunity to bring their expertise to NIJ to work across offices and program areas to obtain a practical and applied research experience. The RA program is a research focused professional development opportunity for doctoral students. We welcome students from all academic disciplines to apply who wish to connect their research to the criminal justice field. This unique assistantship is an opportunity to learn and contribute to the breadth and depth of science research in which NIJ engages. NIJ provides funds to participating universities to pay salaries and other costs associated with research assistants who work on NIJ research activities.

    In the fall of each year, NIJ announces on its website and through social media and other dissemination mechanisms, the availability of research assistantships. Universities nominate enrolled students for these assistantships, and NIJ selects from the nominees based on their background and expertise.

    Any questions should be directed to NIJ's RAP manager at NIJ_RAP@usdoj.gov.

    Funding Details: NIJ and each participating university establish an agreement through which NIJ provides funds to pay research assistants’ salaries, health insurance and tuition remission (via a memorandum of understanding and inter-agency or cooperative agreement).

    The provision and amount of these funds are determined by the university’s standard practice for similarly situated graduate research assistants whose work is performed at the university.

    The cost of tuition remission is calculated based on the university’s standard tuition (such as in-state rates for public schools) per credit hour. There are maximum amounts for tuition remission:

    • Up to 20 credits per academic year for full-time graduate research assistants who work for NIJ during the academic year only.
    • Up to 24 credits per calendar year for full-time graduate research assistants who work for NIJ throughout the calendar year.

    Please note that NIJ determines the number, type and length of research assistantships that it will support, if any, based on the quality of applications, NIJ research priorities and the availability of funds. Research assistantship appointments last for one year, following the home university's academic calendar. There is the possibility of reappointment depending on mid-year reviews, funding availability, and agreements between NIJ and the research assistant’s university.

    Hours and Location: Research assistants are “full-time graduate research assistants” nominated by their universities and approved by NIJ. They work 20 to 30 hours per week (based on university policy) under a 9.5- or 12-month appointment, as applicable. The number of hours worked each week will depend on university policy. If funding is available, research assistants may work full time up to 40 hours per week during university breaks in the fall, winter, spring and summer (with the NIJ RAP manager’s and the university’s prior approval).

    Research assistants work primarily at the NIJ office, 810 Seventh St. N.W., Washington, D.C. Sometimes, work is conducted in the field, such as during data collection efforts, or at another approved location, such as at a university or research facility.

    Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RAs may work remotely until onsite working at NIJ has resumed.

    Research Assistantship Duties: Research assistants perform a range of research-related duties and must work effectively as part of a larger research team. Research assistants plan and schedule their work based on defined objectives, tasks and priorities with the review and approval of the RAP manager, relevant NIJ staff and the university’s Graduate Program Director (GPD)

    Students have until December 23, 2020 to work with their schools to apply. Click here for more information on how to apply.
