There is an ambitious program at the NIH to support early-stage, independent clinical researchers.
The Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program provides 5+ years of full-time, funded research in the NIH intramural program for tenure-track level clinical investigators, followed by either continued research at the NIH, or a special opportunity for 5 additional years of NIH funds at an extramural medical center or research institute. Lasker Scholars may be able to maintain an affiliation with their previous institution during their time at the NIH.
The deadline for applications is June 24, 2013, for positions that will begin in 2014. More information can be found at our website, http://www.nih.gov/science/laskerscholar/ or by email at LaskerScholar@nih.gov . Please share this information with your clinical colleagues.
