The NHLBI EIA is intended to support a research program, rather than a research project, by providing the primary, and most likely sole, source of NHLBI funding on individual grant awards.
Eligibility: Stanford early career faculty (assistant professors) who currently have two NHLBI R01 awards, of which one must be an NHLBI-funded NIH Early Stage Investigator R01 award, and whose outstanding record of research demonstrate their ability to make major contributions to heart, lung, blood and sleep (HLBS) research. Can commit a minimum of 50% research effort (i.e., minimum of six calendar months) throughout the duration of the NHLBI EIA.
Institutional representative (RPM/RMG or OSR) deadlines:  Feb. 8, 2017, and Feb. 8, 2018

*New program*

Howard Hughes Medical Research Institute (HHMI)
Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program

New HHMI postdoc-to-faculty transition award for scientists with Ph.D. and/or M.D. (or equivalent) degrees who are underrepresented in the life sciences
# of applicants permitted: unlimited numbers of applicants are permitted. An internal selection process is not required.
Amount of funding:
Postdoctoral phase: up to $80,000 per year for up to 4 years (minimum of two years and a maximum of 4 years)
Faculty phase: up to $270,000 annually for up to 4 years
Up to 15 fellows will be selected in 2017.
Purpose: Through the new Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program, HHMI will recruit and retain individuals from groups underrepresented in the life sciences. The program will support early career scientists with the potential to become leaders in academic research. Through their successful careers, Hanna H. Gray Fellows will inspire the next generation of scientists from America’s diverse talent pool. Fellows will receive funding for their postdoctoral training and may continue to receive funding during their early career years as independent faculty. The program includes opportunities for career development, including mentoring and active involvement in the HHMI scientific community.
Following the “people, not projects” philosophy of HHMI, the competition is open to basic science researchers and physician-scientists in all biomedical and life science disciplines including plant biology, evolutionary biology, biophysics, chemical biology, biomedical engineering, and computational biology. Fellows will have freedom to change their research focus and follow their own curiosity during the duration of the award.
Eligibility:
The program is open to individuals who are from gender, racial, ethnic, and other groups underrepresented in the life sciences at the career stages targeted by this program, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Applicants must have a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent) by the start of the grant term (by Nov. 15, 2017)
Applicants can have no more than 12 months of postdoctoral research experience at the time of the application due date (as of Feb. 15, 2017)
The program is open to applicants of any citizenship or nationality who have been accepted to join a laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow at a research institution located in the U.S. (including Puerto Rico).
Fellows in both postdoctoral training and faculty phases are required to devote at least 75% of their total effort to research.
To transition to the faculty phase of the program, Fellows must obtain a faculty position in the tenure-track (or equivalent) at a U.S. (including Puerto Rico) research institution with a doctoral-level graduate program in their area of interest.
Fellows will be expected to attend an HHMI science meeting each year and provide an annual progress report.
Timeline:
Institutional representative (RPM/RMG or OSR*) proposal deadline: Feb. 8, 2017
