NIH has reissued the Maximizing Opportunities for Scientific and Academic Independent Careers (MOSAIC) funding opportunities. The MOSAIC program is an NIH-wide initiative designed to facilitate the transition of promising postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds into independent, research-intensive faculty careers in institutions. MOSAIC scholars come from diverse scientific backgrounds, and 75% are from racial/ethnic groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences.
Applications for the MOSAIC scholar awards (K99/R00) are due Wednesday, October 27, and applications for the institutional awards for cohort-based mentoring and career development that support the scholars (UE5) are due Thursday, November 18.
If you are interested in applying, we encourage you to attend an informational webinar on Tuesday, September 7, at 2 p.m. ET.
