NINR is seeking doctoral nursing students interested in boosting their basic or clinical research careers by becoming an NINR Graduate Partnerships Program (GPP) fellow starting fall of 2014. The application deadline has been extended to Monday, December 9, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. EST. Reference letters will be accepted until December 16, 2013.
The NINR GPP provides unparalleled research training plus funding and mentorship to nursing doctoral students pursuing careers in basic or clinical research. It is open to PhD doctoral students currently enrolled in a school of nursing who will have completed all coursework by August 2014.
NINR recently released videos of current GPP fellows discussing their research, career paths through the GPP, and future nursing research goals. To view the videos, please visit www.ninr.nih.gov/GPP.
The GPP offers the academic environment of a university with the breadth and depth of research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). A graduate nursing student selected to become an NINR GPP fellow completes initial coursework at the partnership university (up to two years, depending on curriculum requirements). Following this coursework, the fellow comes to the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, to begin research toward a doctoral dissertation. NINR GPP fellows focus their dissertation research primarily in pathophysiological mechanisms related to symptoms and symptom management, health promotion, disease prevention, tissue injury, and genetics. The fellow’s academic advisor and an NIH senior investigator serve as co-mentors for the dissertation process.
