Research Participation Programs at the NIH are educational and training programs designed to provide college students, recent graduates, and postdoctoral Fellows an opportunity to participate in project-specific NIH research, current public health research, and developmental activities. It is an opportunity to network with world-class scientists using state-of-the-art equipment and to expand students’ knowledge in their field of study while exposing them to new areas of basic and applied research. Participants interact daily with assigned mentors who guide research activities during the internship. These research activities help transition classroom theory into hands-on experience, helping provide answers to today’s pressing scientific questions.
Initial appointments are typically one year, and can be renewed annually up to an additional four years. Summer or short-term appointments may also be offered.
Because of the educational nature of these programs, participants must fall into one of the following categories:
Established scientists interested in new research training activities will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the NIH program coordinator and ORISE management staff.
Applications will be considered without regard to race, color, age, sex, religion, national origin, mental or physical disability, genetic information, sexual orientation, or covered veteran’s status.
