Postdoctoral Fellows and Junior Faculty – Apply to be a Trainee
Experienced Faculty Investigators – Apply to be a Coach-in-Training

The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) invites applications from two audiences for Grant Proposal Writing and Professional Development opportunities:


1. Postdoctoral Fellows & Junior Faculty

  • Currently working on a grant proposal
  • Planning to work on a grant proposal in the next year
 2. Experienced Faculty Investigators
  • Interested in serving as a grant writing and professional development coach for individuals and groups
  • Desiring to learn and apply the proposal writing and coaching strategies used in the NRMN models
  • Committed to the career advancement of investigators from underrepresented populations

The National Institutes of Health-funded NRMN was created to address the unmet need for greater diversity in the biomedical and biobehavioral research workforce.

Starting in June 2015, the NRMN is offering a series of four intensive coaching programs to support investigators from underrepresented populations who are at a later training stage, specifically postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. These programs are designed to enhance participants’ career development, preparing them to meet each program’s ultimate goal: the submission of strong research and research career development proposals for funding in the biomedical or biobehavioral sciences. The programs features:

  • Paid travel expenses for in-person meetings
  • Token stipends for coaches that complete the training
  • Networking with colleagues from across NRMN’s network
