The National Institutes of Health provide opportunities for students, postgraduates, postdoctoral researchers, university faculty, and established scientists to conduct scientific research in fields of science relevant to the mission of NIH. 

For example, NIH has established several Strategic Partnership Projects (SPP) programs with the U.S. Department of Energy to make research opportunities available to qualified candidates who perform research in STEM fields.  By creating these opportunities, NIH contributes to national goals for STEM education and develops the nation’s scientific workforce. 

NIH’s Strategic Partnership Projects are administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), a U.S. Department of Energy Institute managed by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU).

On this site you will find information about SPP research participation programs sponsored by NIH.  Whether you are a candidate searching for a research opportunity, a current participant, or are NIH sponsor or mentor, this site has valuable information for you.
