Gates – Simons Foundation: Faculty Scholar awards for early career scientists –
Deadline July 28
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Simons Foundation would like to call your attention to a joint national competition for grants to outstanding early career scientists as Faculty Scholars. Awardees will receive a five-year, non-renewable grant whose size will be based on several factors, including the amount of external funding the scientist has at the time of the grant. The grants will range from $100,000 to $400,000 per year for direct costs. There are no limits on the number of applicants or awardees from any eligible institution, and candidates apply directly without an institutional nomination. Both basic researchers and physician scientists are welcome in this open competition. HHMI, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Simons Foundation encourage applications from women and minorities under-represented in the biomedical and biological sciences. For more information, including eligibility criteria, see www.hhmi.org/faculty-scholars.
We appreciate your help in distributing this announcement to departmental colleagues and others at your institution to whom this may be of interest. Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
This is to alert you of a recent NIH Notice regarding the new Biosketch format. All applications, including training grant and career development applications, are required to use the new format beginning with January 25, 2015 submissions. Please pass this along to your trainees and interested colleagues.
There are two biosketch forms:
- General: for ALL applications (except fellowships)
- Fellowship (+R36 +Diversity Supplement)

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.
