The Office of Extramural Research has just released a “Request for Information” (RFI) to solicit input from the research community on development of an “emeritus award.” They want to explore how senior investigators can contribute and “hand off” their skills in the form of mentorship, partnerships, skills development, etc. to junior and other investigators.
Please see a brief description of the idea in Rock Talk and the RFI here.
Responses are due by March 6.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Cohort of PRIDE.
The deadline for Application submission is March 1, 2015.
A notice has just been published revising the date that new Biosketch format must be used. It is now required for submissions on or after May 25.

Hot off the press – the Mentored Career Development Award to Promote Faculty Diversity in Biomedical Research (K01) has just been released.
Two differences from the previous RFA;
- Two due dates per year instead of one – the first due date is February 18, 2015, followed by October 15, 2015.
- All due dates may be found in the RFA.
· Unlike previous K01 Diversity RFAs, this does not include a “Re-entry” component.
There is a health disparities position open at Penn State in the Department of Health Policy and Administration (http://hhd.psu.edu/hr/careers/54146). It’s actually 1 of 5 positions that are part of a cluster hire on health disparities in our College of Health and Human Development (http://hhd.psu.edu/Health-Disparities-Cluster) in the departments of nutrition, biobehavioral health, kinesiology in addition to the HPA department.
