The primary goals of the IRACDA program are to (1) develop a group of highly trained biomedical scientists who have the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue independent research and teaching careers in academia; and (2) enhance science educational offerings at partner institutions, and promote links between RIIs and partner institutions through research and teaching collaborations. The specific objectives of this initiative are to:
- Develop the research, teaching, and other skills that are needed by postdoctoral scholars in order to conduct high-quality research and pursue an independent research and teaching career in an academic environment;
- Foster the development of research-oriented science curricula, using contemporary teaching strategies, at partner institutions; and
- Promote links between RIIs and partner institutions that can lead to further collaborations in faculty research and student training.
The overall goal of NIH Research Career Development programs is to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in appropriate scientific disciplines to address the Nation’s biomedical, behavioral, and clinical needs. More information about Career programs may be found at the NIH Extramural Training Mechanisms website.
The proposed institutional research career development program may complement other, ongoing research training and career development programs at the applicant institution, but the proposed career development experiences must be distinct from those career development programs currently receiving Federal support.
