The 2017 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Future Research Leaders Conference (FRLC) will be held September 12-14 in Bethesda, Maryland. FRLC is a career-development opportunity for talented early-career biomedical and behavioral scientists from diverse backgrounds. During the FRLC, selected early-career scientists will showcase their research to the NIH scientific community and gain insights from NIH leadership and investigators about developing an independent scientific career. The event is most appropriate for post-doc and junior-faculty level investigators.
Investigators whose demographic backgrounds are underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral science workforce (e.g., women, African American, Hispanic, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian/other Pacific Islander, people with disabilities, and people of disadvantage backgrounds) are strongly encouraged to apply. Travel and lodging expenses will be supported.
The conference application deadline is April 28, and reference letters will be accepted until May 5. Please see NIH FRLC (https://diversity.nih.gov/
programs-partnerships/frlc/) for more details. Applicants should submit their materials at FRLC application.
Please contact FRLC@nih.gov if you have any questions. Thank you.
