Career Development Support at NIMH: The Elephant in the Room
  • There are many areas such as child mental health interventions and services research where there are severe shortages of researchers in certain sub- areas of science
say it again
Say It Again!!
  • There are many areas where there are critical and growing shortages of well trained researchers vital to the nation’s mental health research needs.
  • Research training at NIH and the NIMH will continue in these core areas …..
one thing is sure
One Thing Is Sure
  • If you do not submit an application there is 100% certainty that it will not be funded
diversify your funding portfolio
Diversify Your Funding Portfolio
  • Federal Funding (NIMH/NIH*, DOD, DOE, NIJ)
  • Large Private Foundations (NARSAD, RWJ, Hartford etc.)
  • Small and Local Private Foundations
  • University Seed Grants
  • State and local government funds
  • For profit organizations
be aware of pros and cons
Be Aware of Pros and Cons
  • Be aware that there are pros and cons to obtaining funding from different sources
  • Some are easy to spot e.g., ethics of doing drug research for the pharmaceutical industry, others more difficult (e.g., building up a research portfolio in an area tangential to your real research interests because of $ availability/doing evaluation vs. research)
selecting the right mechanism from nimh
Selecting the Right Mechanism from NIMH
  • Read Announcement on the web
  • Advice from colleagues /mentors
  • Speak with NIMH/NIH Project officers
finding the right grant mechanism
Finding the Right Grant Mechanism
  • Match where you are in your career (pre-doc, post-doc, new faculty member)
  • Match the type or research (basic, clinical or patient oriented, translational, services, quantitative)
  • Match what types of resources you need ($, time,training etc)
  • Match qualifications/eligibility

What Are They?

Mentored Career Development Awards are Meant for Basic and Clinical Research Scientist Who are in the Initial Phases of Establishing Their Research Careers and Who need to Pursue an Additional Period of Supervised Career Development Beyond Postdoctoral Training in Order to Become an Independent Scientific Investigators

possible career development application
Possible Career Development Application
  • If you need substantial training and career development to answer both the specific question and to pursue your overall research program, a career development mechanism may be appropriate
  • Statistics training does not rise to the level of “substantial” unless you are planning to be a biostatistician
