STEP 4: Call the NIH Scientific Program Officer

Once you find a program announcement and an institute you think might apply to your research:
You are strongly encouraged to call the NIH institute scientific program officer listed on the NIH program announcement to discuss your eligibility and your research before you begin your application. The NIH program officials will help you determine if you are considering the correct institute (i.e., NCI, NHLBI) and program announcement (K01, K08, etc.) If there are multiple participating institutes: see the NIH institute table of contacts for eligibility, institute-specific criteria, and contact persons.

STEP 5:
Sign up for one 3 hour NIH K Award Computer Lab Session

FAQs



FAQ's
1. If I sign up for the computer lab session, am I commited to submit an application for the next standard deadline?
No, taking the class is not a commitment to submit. Often, attendees delay submitting their proposal until the next cycle. And, those same attendees who delay often choose to attend a second time closer to their deadline.

2. Can we bring our own iPad/laptop to the course to fill out electronic forms?
The lab is equipped with a PC for each student.

3. Will I need to bring my cell phone or tablet so I can acces the 2-step authentication code during the session?
Yes. Please bring your cell phone or tablet to the session so you can acess your two step authentication code.
Per this IRT webpage >>: This type of authentication is required to access Stanford systems that have higher than normal levels of security, such as critical business or infrastructure systems.

 

 

Training- responsible conduct of research (RCR)

 

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)
The NIH requires formal training in the responsible conduct of research. Per the NIH, Instruction must be undertaken at least once during each career stage, and at a frequency of no less than once every four years. Stanford has a specific class to address this:

NIH Research Career Development Awards

 



K01 awards- resesarch scientist development award

 

 

Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (Parent K01) PA-16-190
Multiple participating NIH institutes:
NHGRI, NIA, NIAAA, NIAID**, NIAMS, NIBIB, NICHD, NIDA, NIDCR, NIMH, NINR, NCCIH, ORIP
The purpose of the NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide support and “protected time” (three, four, or five years) for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence. Although all of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) use this support mechanism to support career development experiences that lead to research independence, some ICs use the K01 award for individuals who propose to train in a new field or for individuals who have had a hiatus in their research career because of illness or pressing family circumstances.
Other ICs utilize the K01 award to increase research workforce diversity by providing enhanced research career development opportunities.

K99/R00 Citizenship- eligibility

For most K awards U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is a requirement. However, the K99/R00 award is the only one that permits non-citizens/permanent residents to apply. For non-U.S. citizen/permanent residents, the applicant U.S. institution for each phase of the application (K99 or R00) is responsible for determining and documenting in the application that the applicant investigator’s visa will allow him or her to remain in this country long enough to: (a) transition to an independent research career in the U.S. during the proposed mentored (K99) phase and/or (b) be productive on the research project in the U.S. for the duration of the proposed independent research (R00) phase.

Visas: Per clarification from the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, foreign registered postdoctoral fellows are here on J-1, H-1B/TN visas. Individuals with these J-1, H-1B/TN visas may be eligible to apply for the K99/R00 award as long as their departments document in their application, per the guidelines above, that their visas will allow them to remain in the country during the proposed mentored K99 mentored phase here at Stanford and be productive on the research project in the U.S. for the duration of the proposed independent research (R00) phase.

Confirm your eligibility:
Candidates are strongly encouraged to consult with the scientific/research contact person listed in the announcement prior to the submission of an application to discuss eligibility.
