National Library of Medicine (NLM) Funded Postdoctoral Fellowships
This grant funds postdoctoral positions limited to US citizens or green card holders, and can take two forms:
- Postdoctoral trainees with a doctorate in a health-related field (MD, PhD, PharmD, or other healthcare doctorate):
Trainees in this category are strongly encouraged to pursue Biomedical Informatics postdoctoral training, leading to a degree (Masters or PhD).
The position is funded for up to 3 years. Stipend support rates can be found on the NLM website.
- Postdoctoral trainees with a doctorate in informatics, computer science, or a related field:
Trainees in this category are eligible for funding between 1-3 years while pursuing advanced informatics training, which typically does not lead to a degree. These positions are funded at the NLM stipend support rates.
Each NLM informatics research training program makes special efforts to recruit individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and those from economically, socially, culturally or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, into careers in biomedical informatics. The positions are for US citizens and permanent residents.
