Funding Specifically for Postdocs

All grant proposal submissions are handled at the departmental level. Before beginning a proposal, contact your departmental administrator who can assist with the development and submission of your proposals. All proposals submitted through the university must have institutional endorsement.


Ethics / Responsible Conduct of Research

An Ethics/Responsible Conduct of Research series for postdocs was initiated in 2011 and continues with one session per quarter. Ethics training is mandatory for postdoctoral trainees supported on NIH T32 training grants and individual NIH NRSAs (F and K fellowships). Look for these Ethics Seminars as part of our PDA Seminar Series. NIH recommends 8 hours of ethics training at the start of training, and then again every 4 years. The PDA Ethics series is designed to give trainees 9 hours of ethics training over the course of 2 years (4.5 hours/year). In addition to the PDA Seminar series, the Institute for Translational Medicine offers an 8-session summer RCR course each July, covering everything from conflicts of interest to ethical treatment of animals to intellectual property.
