History of biomedicine fellowship and travel grant at the NIH

By September 20, 2006No Comments

DeWitt Stetten, Jr., Fellowship at the National Institutes of Health seeks to encourage historical research and writing about biomedical sciences and technology by providing a postdoctoral fellow, at the beginning stages of the professional career, with a year’s research experience in residence at the Office of NIH History.

The Stetten Fellow will have access to the resources of the Office of NIH History, the collections of the Stetten Museum, the National Library of Medicine, and to other repositories in the Washington, DC area. The Fellow will conduct research under the supervision of the Director of the Office of NIH History and also be guided by a scientific mentor (for assistance in finding a scientific mentor, contact the Office of NIH History). The Fellow will be expected to participate in historical activities on campus, including presentation of one or more seminars and lectures. Application deadline is December 15, 2006.

The John J. Pisano Travel Grants are administered through the Office of NIH History for the purpose of encouraging historical research relating to the NIH intramural programs. One or two grants each year are expected to be available at the level of $1,500 for United States residents and $2,000 for recipients who reside outside the United States. This will be a lump sum award. Recipients are responsible for making all arrangements for travel to and accommodations in Bethesda. Applications for an award may be submitted at any time and will be reviewed within 3 months of receipt.
