Mentoring early career researchers


fifth annual NIH National Graduate Student Research Festival, to be held October 25 and 26, 2010 on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The purpose of this event is to recruit outstanding young scientists to postdoctoral positions in the intramural research program at the NIH. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in a PhD program in the U.S. and on schedule to complete their PhD degree requirements by October 2011. We will select ~200 students to visit our campus for two days of activities including poster sessions, science talks, information interactions with current NIH postdocs, and informational sessions about research and training opportunities at NIH
