Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) : NIDDK

Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01)

  • The K01 award is intended to provide research support and training for a three, four or five-year transition period between postdoctoral training and an independent research career. Applicants must have a research doctorate (usually Ph.D.), have completed at least two, but usually not more than five, years of postdoctoral training; identify a mentor; and design a strong research proposal. Preference will be given to applications from fellows supported by NIDDK Institutional National Research Service Awards (T32s) or Individual National Research Service Awards (F32s). Applications from Research Associates, or the equivalent, supported by R01 funding are usually not appropriate.
  • The NIDDK will provide up to $90,000 for salary, the appropriate fringe benefits, and up to $25,000 for research support for K01 awards.
