Training in NIAID Labs
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) offers both clinical and laboratory research training programs for students and postdoctoral fellows. Programs include accredited medical fellowship training in allergy/immunology and infectious diseases. Applications for available NIAID postdoctoral fellowship positions can be submitted online.
OTD conducts outreach programs to recruit students interested in exploring careers in biomedical research, and designs and conducts training programs to promote diversity in NIAID laboratories. OTD programs include:
NIAID's annual program for underrepresented minority students interested in exploring career opportunities in allergy, immunology, and infectious diseases.
The Summer Internship Program in Biomedical Research and its sister program, the Summer Research Fellowship Program, offer students the unique opportunity to join one of the NIAID’s research laboratories for a minimum of 8 weeks beginning in May through September.
This program will serve as a mechanism to foster and support collaborations and cooperative research between VRC investigators and other investigators within the NIH intramural program.
The NIAID Independent Scholars Program is designed to bring exceptionally talented young scientists to the NIAID intramural research program directly from their Ph.D. training to establish independent research programs within the mentoring framework of an NIAID laboratory.Unlike conventional postdoctoral programs, the NIAID Independent Scholars Program offers a direct and immediate path to independence.
